Third Indiana patient dies from COVID-19

A third person in Indiana has died from COVID-19, the Indiana State Department of Health announced Friday.

The patient who died was an adult resident of Marion County, was over the age of 60 and was hospitalized.

The state reported 23 new cases of COVID-19 bringing the total to 79 in the state.

“Losing a loved one is devastating, and it’s troubling to see the toll that COVID-19 is taking on elderly residents here in Indiana and across the country,” said State Health Commissioner Kris Box, M.D., FACOG. “I implore Hoosiers to continue to stay home if they’re sick and practice social distancing so that we can halt the spread of this virus and protect the most vulnerable among us.”

Keep in mind folks! Noone is invisible to the covid 19 virus. Truth be told ,when u go to the store , unless u gloves and wear a protective mask. You are potentially EXPOSED! The only way to not spread it in ur home and to others. WASH ur Hands bar soap works fine! Rubbing alcohol and aloevera gel mix will make great HAND SANITIZER! ATLEAST 60%ALCOHOL. OH BTW cant find rubbing alcohol in stores.
Attn: STORES PLEASE RESTOCK EVERYWHERE! AND STORES LIMIT BUYING QUANTITY PLEASE! PEOPLE ARE BUYING SELFISHLY😡 Thing to remember is we are all hosts of this virus. You could have it right now, and not have any symptoms " Praise God! However doesnt mean we cant affect others. How devastated would you be if " YOU SPREAD THE VIRUS! IF U GO OUT ANYWHERE THEN COME HOME, You should strip ur clothes off at door, Wash ur hands Dah! To protect OTHERS YOU SHOULD BE ACTING LIKE YOU ALREADY HAVE IT AND PROTECT OTHERS FROM YOU SPREADING IT! If you dont quarantine ur body . Atleast use ur head and be considerate of others!
