She lost her dad and uncle to coronavirus. Trump's claim that the virus is exaggerated is an insult, 彼女が言います

Most New Year’s Days, Rosa Cerna would be celebrating the birthdays of her dad and unclebrothers born exactly one year apart. 今年, she mourned them both at a cemetery in Simi Valley, カリフォルニア.

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, 彼女はCNNに語った.
Every day I live knowing that my dad passed from Covid, that my uncle passed from Covid. And some people, 私は思いません, understand that it could impact them the same way,” 彼女は言いました. “They live so carelesslybut whatever you do could affect somebody else, just like they did to them.
As Cerna grieved this weekend, ドナルド・トランプ大統領 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,” 彼が書きました.
    Both infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci and US Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams contradicted his claims 日曜日, 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.
    彼女の父, Virgilio, and his brother did everything together, 彼女は言いました. 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, 彼女は言いました. And though Cerna’s uncle was having some symptoms, he did not know he had Covid-19, 彼女は言いました.
    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, 彼女は言いました, and they all expected that her father, who had started to feel sick, would test positive too.
    About a week later, 彼女は言いました, her father went to the emergency room, and she never saw him again.
    今, 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.
