A Covid-19 Virus Horror Story
Fulton County, Georgia, has more than 18,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 398 deaths, according to state data. The town of John's Creek is just one of many towns dotting the landscape there. But out there, a sinister murderer that possesses all the best attributes for a killer lurks: invisible, silent, a variety of impacts that causes doubt. Of course, it is Covid-19 virus.
While the Hunter family's story is simple, it remains shocking. It is a reminder to all those naysayers in the Trump camp that make wearing a mask, ignoring social distancing, a political thing. The virus knows nothing about the idiot in the White House but it appreciates him.
Like any family, the Hunter family were following the CDC guidelines. They wore masks in public areas, they washed their hands when they could, they kept social distancing in public stores. One member even wore gloves when in public or at work. They were doing all the right things. So they all thought.
It was in mid-July or so, when the family of three all got tested for the virus. All members were healthy, no preexisting health conditions for the adults, both in mid-fifties, or there only teenage son. Time went on until the results all shocked them: all were positive!
Worried and concern, nothing changed much. The teenage boy, Justine Hunter, a senior, showed no symptoms at all. Never did. However, both parents began to have a slight cough that turned into a hacking cough. Then, both began to have fevers that were constant and relentless. Initially, the parents tried to fight it off for a few days but as the virus spread to their lungs the most serious sign, breathing problems, set in. This was within a week of being found positive. By the last week of July, both were in the hospital fighting for their lives.
As quickly as it all started, both parents died by the end of the month. Just think about that. Never doubt there is a killer virus out there. Even when you are most careful, it can infect and kill.
