A part of her post on Facebook read, “The Coronavirus took my father this morning. I was given 2 minutes to say my goodbyes before I was rushed out. He seemed peaceful and as I left there was still a glimmer of hope that he wouldn’t be a ticker on the right hand side of the CNN/Fox news screen. I walked 50 blocks home still with hope in my heart.

By the time I got in the doors to my apartment I received the news that he was gone.” (sic) Check out the full post here: Also Read - Veteran Japanese Comedian Ken Shimura Dies After Being Hospitalized For Coronavirus
