Very young. Article does not say if she had any medical issues. Just wondering. Scary.

Sounds like she let it go too long after the initial visit. Happens like this with pneumonia. Sometimes you just can't bring someone back when their lungs are compromised. This is why this stuff is serious.

"Mardi Gras ... fell on Feb. 25, when the virus was already in the United States but before ... national leaders had raised the alarm with the American public."

Feb 25:
"Now they have it; they have studied it. They know very much. In fact, we’re very close to a vaccine."
"I think that's a problem that's going to go away...."

Coronavirus was on our radar and we predicted outbreaks here in the US in January. But we thought there was time. And we thought New Orleans would still be safe during Mardi Gras celebrations. So we went to NOLA for our annual fixed week, fixed unit pre-Mardi Gras week at Avenue Plaza. Little did we know it was already spreading in NOLA. We had no idea! We just did not think it had that far of a reach yet - New Orleans doesn't have a strong connection to China and we just thought it would hit SF and NY and move to the rest of the nation a bit more slowly. Turns out that Mardi Gras was a "super spreading" event. Tons of people got it during the Mardi Gras parades. Plus, 2 people got hit by parade floats and died this year too. What a tragic Mardi Gras was 2020. I'm kind of in shock about it all. New Orleans just can't catch a break - tragedy after tragedy for 300 + years.
