“A 20-something-year-old girl went to a party with her friends and got COVID,” he said. “Before she was symptomatic, she visited her 80-year-old grandparents and they got sick.”
Parkland Hospital’s chief medical officer Dr. Joseph Chang said all three ended up in the ICU at Parkland, but the granddaughter didn’t know it because she was intubated and unconscious.
She woke up after ten days and discovered not only had her grandparents been in the ICU with her, “but her grandfather had passed the day before she woke back up,” Chang said.
“The human toll of COVID is really the untold story,” he said.
