Eighty-four-year-old Kent and Jean MacVicar, 82, were the first to get the virus. Weeks after then, their daughter, 62-year-old Jayne Garvey, who is also a crime analyst of Staffordshire police started showing symptoms, Evening Standard reports.

Jayne’s surviving brother, Richard MacVira, a 60-year-old man, said that losing most members of his family within a short time felt like he was ripped from inside and his heart stolen.

It should be noted that Richard announced the death of his family members on Saturday, April 11. In mourning the loss, he said the only comfort he has is that his sister is with their parents.
