New York City confirmed on the morning of March 14, 2020 the first Coronavirus death and some medias will take that news and run with it. Don’t let them drive you crazy, because their concern is not your wellbeing, but their pocket. In the media industry tragedy equals anxiety, which increases traffic on their platforms and guarantees ad money. Ad money is the way that many media outlets survive.
This first death was expected, the same way we knew that Coronavirus would make it to New York City sooner or later.
The victim is an elderly woman with advanced emphysema, a long-term, progressive disease of the lungs that primarily causes shortness of breath due to over-inflation of the alveoli (air sacs in the lung).
She was admitted to the hospital last week and had been in critical condition ever since.
Being anxious or afraid will not help you. Be informed and take the necessary steps to protect yourself and your loved ones.
