Sy het haar pa en oom aan die koronavirus verloor. Trump's claim that the virus is exaggerated is an insult, sy sê

Most New Year’s Days, Rosa Cerna sou die verjaardag van haar pa en oom vier — broers presies een jaar uitmekaar gebore. Hierdie jaar, sy betreur hulle albei by 'n begraafplaas in Simi Valley, Kalifornië.

Visiting the graves of the brothers who died of Covid-19, Cerna said she is angry that her 73-year-old father had so much more life to live and that the death of two important men in her life could have been prevented if more people had taken it seriously, het sy aan CNN gesê.
Every day I live knowing that my dad passed from Covid, that my uncle passed from Covid. And some people, I don’t think, understand that it could impact them the same way,” sy het gese. “They live so carelesslybut whatever you do could affect somebody else, just like they did to them.
As Cerna grieved this weekend, President Donald Trump questioned the number of cases and deaths in the US in a tweet, using the termFake News.
    He claimed the cases and deaths arefar exaggerated in the United States because of @CDCgov’s ridiculous method of determination compared to other countries, many of whom report, purposely, very inaccurately and low,” hy het geskryf.
    Both infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci and US Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams contradicted his claims Sondag, saying there was no basis for them.
    It’s an insult,” Cerna said. “If it was fake, then my dad would be alive. My uncleall the rest of the people that have died would be alive.
    Her father, Virgilio, and his brother did everything together, sy het gese. Cerna said her unclea Navy veteranwas like a second father to her growing up.
    So when Fourth of July weekend came around, her uncle drove over for a visit. The brothers shared a lovely meal, sy het gese. And though Cerna’s uncle was having some symptoms, he did not know he had Covid-19, sy het gese.
    Virgilio Cerna, an immigrant from El Salvador, worked as a custodian at Universal.

    By the end of that week, the family found out her uncle was positive, sy het gese, and they all expected that her father, who had started to feel sick, would test positive too.
    About a week later, sy het gese, her father went to the emergency room, and she never saw him again.
    Nou, Cerna believes, her father would want others to understand the risks embedded in the choices they make as the pandemic continues.
      Don’t go to parties. Do follow social distancing. Do wear masks,” Cerna said. “You might not care about yourself, but you need to care about other people.
      California hospitals are treating an unprecedented number of patients as case skyrocket in the state. Op Sondag, California reported more than 45,000 nuwe sake en 21,510 current coronavirus hospitalizations, according to the state’s health department.
