- The coronavirus has badly affected a New Jersey family after they lost four of their members to the deadly virus
- A woman lost her life and that of three of her children to the virus while other family members are in quarantine or critical conditions
- About twenty other relatives are also undergoing quarantine as they anxiously await their test results
The coronavirus pandemic is definitely not a joke as it has led to countries being shut down and cultural activities that are known for drawing crowds to be halted.
The pandemic has threatened to bring the world to its knees as it spreads quickly and also leads to death despite there being no known cure for it.
A New Jersey family had been badly hit by the pandemic after losing four members to the virus only days and hours apart.
73-year-old Grace Fusco, and three of her children have died as a result of the virus while three more of her children have been hospitalised with two in critical conditions, as reported by the New York Times.
The family’s spokesperson, Ms. Paradiso Fodera, who is also a cousin to the matriarch, said that Mrs Fusco reportedly died unaware that two of her eldest children had already died before her because of the virus.
The eldest child, Rita Fusco-Jackson, was 55 while her son, Vincent Fusco Jr. was in his mid-50s.
While speaking with CNN, the spokesperson Fodera said: “"The family's biggest concern is that we have four members of one family who have passed, two on life support and one stable.”
Speaking further, she said that 19 other family members who are awaiting their test results are anxious as they have no idea whether they have been infected or not.
According to reports from New York Times, the coronavirus infection appears to have been spread across the family during a dinner they had earlier in the month.
This is so sad. RIP to the dead.
