Sorry - I was quoting the post directly preceding mine. Hit " quote " and deleted everything except that sentence, which I thought was the preferred way.

Remember that these arent suddenly infected people, they are just infections that are now being counted.

A GoFundMe created for the family says six members of the family members were hospitalized with "severe symptoms" on March 10. "The Fusco family needs your thoughts and prayers during these hard times and any amount of donation would be greatly appreciated," organizer Allen Zak wrote.

So awful to hear about that family... it's crazy that they were all hit so hard by this. I wonder if it's somehow a genetic thing, like someone mentioned before?
