A coronavirus patient has passed away after his family unplugged his ventilator to turn on the air conditioning.
Unbelievable, right? Keep scrolling to read more…
But believe it or not, we still are.
Which is exactly what should be happening, of course.
And even though numbers of infections are steadily dropping in many countries, our country continues to be the worst affected.
It just doesn’t seem to be phasing people anymore.
Such as coughing, sneezing, and touching things with your bare hands.
Because even though they can’t protect a person fully from catching or spreading the virus, they lower that chance significantly.
And New York City is one of those places.
The number of coronavirus cases continues to steadily rise, with many parts of the country even tightening lockdown restrictions yet again.
And more and more lives are being put at risk because of this.
And that’s not just here in America… it’s happening all around the world were infection rates continue to climb.
And one family recently lead to the death of their relative who was battling the virus due to their own carelessness.
A forty-year-old man was being kept in intensive care after contracting the deadly virus.
So it’s safe to say that residents were well and truly feeling the heat.
And the hospital was reaching some unbearable temperatures during the heatwave.
So they decided to unplug the ventilator he was on and plug in the air conditioning instead.
The ventilator had a battery but after being unplugged, it ran out of power around thirty minutes later and the man’s condition deteriorated.
But it was too late.
The man passed away shortly afterward.
The family verbally abused hospital staff after the man’s death, as though they weren’t the ones who unplugged his machine in the first place.
And while all staff has given their statements, the family has not responded to them, and haven’t filed a formal complaint either.
But it goes to show the precautions of allowing numerous family members to visit a critically ill patient who is infected with the coronavirus.
Even if they are the ones who are responsible!
