The first nurse in New York City to die of COVID-19 contracted in the line of duty has passed.
Kious Jordon Kelly had told his family that he thought he had contracted the virus while at work.
He most certainly was right.
He’s passed and his colleagues fear he will not be the last.
Our doctors, nurses and techs–healthcare professionals of all kinds–are on the front lines as the coronavirus ravages our communities.
Pray for them. Pray for them and advocate for those who make decisions to do whatever must be done to get them the tools they need to continue to serve our communities and the patients whose care has been entrusted to them.
God bless Kious and all who are on the front lines.
Take good care of yourselves; there are rough times ahead.
