A man from California who posted his regret on Facebook after attending a party where he contracted COVID-19 has died of the deadly disease.
Thomas Macias attended the party in June, and on June 20, he wrote an impassioned message on Facebook in which he lamented ignoring social distancing.
A day after posting his regret on Facebook, Macias succumbed to the deadly disease, NBC News reports.
Legit.ng notes that Macias, who was a truck driver, regretted putting his family's health in jeopardy, adding that it was a painful experience for him.
Macias had hoped to survive the disease with God's help, but he died on June 21.
In his Facebook post, Macias advised people to take the coronavirus seriously, saying it is no joke.
He had written on Facebook: "If you have to go out wear a mask and practice social distancing."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a couple who were married for 53 years died of COVID-19 within an hour of each other, spending their last moments together holding hands.
The disclosure was made by their son who told CNN that Betty and Curtis Tarpley met in school and fell in love with each other.
In other news, a beautiful woman, Kudzanai T Masiiwa and her husband, both lost their jobs when the country went into lockdown to try and curb the spread of the coronavirus.
Unemployment placed more pressure on the couple, who are expecting a little girl in August. Masiiwa took to the #ImStaying Facebook page to detail how stressed she and her husband were about having no income months before they are going to become parents.
However, one kind lady reached out and helped. Masiiwa told Mzansi social media users that the lady, Karien, helped by gifting them with all the baby necessities.
