A 42-year-old hospital worker in Georgia who had coronavirus was found dead in her home with her 4-year-old child by her body.

Diedre Wilkes' body was discovered Thursday in the living room of her home in Newnan, about 40 miles southwest of Atlanta, after a family member called the Coweta County Sheriff's Office requesting a welfare check, the coroner, Richard Hawk, told NBC News on Wednesday.

It's believed she died 12 to 16 hours before she was found, the coroner said.

Anxious to see the autopsy results.
This woman was a trained person and Corona is not known to kill you without several days of being sick.
I suspect something else, it just doesn't seem likely that she would be that ill without calling 911.

But it doesn't happen so instantly that you cannot get to a phone.

No but a reduced lung capacity and shortness of breath already .... there is apparently a fine line and you pass out and die

people die on respirators ... the lungs cannot process enough Oxygen to keep them alive ......
this is why Hospitals are considering a DNR for Covid-19 patients

More than 2.5 million people die in the US every year. Over 600,000 of them are from heart disease. 170,000+- are from accidents of some form.

So far around 1,000 people have died of the Chinese virus.

This is becoming the new gun violence, where it's not a major cause of death - not even in the top 10 - but each incident gets an inordinate amount of media attention to make us think it's bigger than what it is.

Add a child by the body FTW.

Perfect examples are the news agencies themselves. CNN had 45 stories on their front page. 39 of them are Corona. Likewise for MSNBC and even FOX.

Amping up the story to keep the eyes.

The same day, a mammogram technician at Piedmont Newnan Hospital was found dead in her Coweta County home. Laboratory tests confirmed the woman had COVID-19, Coweta County Coroner Richard Hawk said.

And the Sheeple freak out and douse themselves with hand sanitizer, make hysterical memes about everyone staying inside.

It's like being caught up in a riot that I was just there to observe.

The only positive I can think of all this, is some of the cretins that leave the restroom without washing their hands might finally be doing so.
Doubtful. You shouldn't have to tell adults how to wash their hands, and yet we have tutorials in our face constantly. People are acting like basic hygiene is some new religion they've never heard of before.

Elsewhere in Georgia............. I hope they don't breathe on their victims.

To avoid transmission of the disease, the Fulton jail released 30 nonviolent prisoners. Hall County turned loose 200 prisoners, all either accused of nonviolent misdemeanors or age 60 or older and considered no threat to the public.
