Man Contracts Coronavirus After Hosting Wedding Anniversary Party Of Less Than 10 People
As the dreaded coronavirus continues to spread across the world, with people advised to take heed of certain precautionary measures like observing social distancing; avoiding gathering with more than 50 persons. An American man identified as Emilian White has tested positive for the virus after hosting his 27th wedding anniversary party with less than 10 people.
According to ABC7, Mr. Emilian White and his wife Kim Gagne, celebrated their anniversary by having a small dinner with a couple of friends not more than ten this past Friday.
After the event, Mr. Emilian developed a fever and started feeling ill. He was later taken to a hospital, where he tested positive for coronavirus.
His wife, Kim, said she thought her husband would just get checked out after getting tested for the virus but she says, “It went from 0 to 100 quickly,” as their last simple touch was a fist bump before the shocking news was revealed.
“I didn’t know what was happening,” she said via Facetime.
“We had people over and that was our mistake. We thought we were okay because we had less than 10 people. But no, don’t have anyone in your house,” she said.
“He’s getting better, but, when they took him for a scan, the minute they took the oxygen off, it becomes very difficult to breathe,” she added.
Mrs. Kim Gagne and her children are now in quarantine at home.
