Uncle has died in Victoria from this - less than a week was all it took.
He didn't qualify for a ventilator as his organ's had already started failing within 48 of symptoms appearing. He was 70 years old.
There are no words - this doesn't even feel normal or real.
Normally you might get to see them, send a text, facetime if someone was ill. No communication at all
His poor wife & daughter don't even know what to think
Please, please, please take this seriously.
Our hearts are breaking into little pieces - from the loss and the upscaled fear associated with it.

Do you think your adult DD will begin to understand now?

I’m so sorry for your loss.
Must be so hard not to have been able to see him and frustrating to hear that he didn’t qualify for a ventilator.
