A Florida woman who was hospitalized with a severe case of COVID-19 returned home after receiving treatment to find her husband dead of the disease.
Lisa Steadman, a 58-year-old nail technician from Winter Haven, Florida, told The Washington Post her husband, Ronald, was the first to test positive for the disease on August 1.
Ronald, a 55-year-old mechanical and electrical engineer, was diagnosed at an urgent care. He was sent home with medications and told to return if his condition worsened, Steadman told the Post. She was diagnosed two days later at a hospital when she began having symptoms of COVID-19, she told the newspaper.
But days later she lost consciousness at home and her oxygen levels dropped below 80%, so she returned to the hospital and was admitted, while her husband remained at home to recover.
