I’ve received a few group emails from family members this morning, each letting us know that my great uncle passed away in hospital last night from COVID.
He was admitted to hospital on December 2nd, alongside his wife. They’d been living in a long-term care facility and contracted the virus from an outbreak in the facility. His wife passed away on December 30th from COVID.
I can’t even imagine what his kids have been going through this past week. Their parents died alone in hospital, a week apart.
