14 people infected after an "innocent" family lunch: the host is ovecome by guilt
Since people have to deal with Coronavirus, social habits have necessarily had to adapt to this new reality. The months of lockdown, isolation, distancing and health measures have served to bring down the numbers during the pandemic.
With "phase two", however, too many people have relaxed too much, believing that the worst was now behind us or that it never really happened. The story today shows how wrong this is.
Tony Green lives with his wife in Dallas, Texas. To celebrate the "return to normal", the man saw fit to organize a family reunion. About twenty people took part in the reunion. Everyone felt safe and during lunch no one bothered to respect the most elementary precautions. Everything seemed to go smoothly, it was a fun and relaxed barbecue. Tony even posted photos of the day on social media.
Unfortunately, a few days later, many guests began to experience symptoms of Covid-19. None of those present had manifested any symptoms during the barbecue, but experts are constantly warning about the so-called "asymptomatic" carriers.
Before it happened to him, Tony was one of many who believed that the pandemic was actually a media invention to keep the population in check. Despite this, however, he had to change his mind. As many as 14 of the participants tested positive, with 12 recovering after a couple of weeks. Unfortunately, Tony's wife's grandmother didn't make it, and the father-in-law is in intensive care connected to a respirator. Tony himself was forced to spend a few days in the hospital. Even without having deliberately caused everything, the man now feels deeply guilty.
Tony has published and shared his experience on the internet, appealing to people's caution. His story is proof that the danger has not yet passed, and that we are all responsible for the safety of others.
