In other news, WITHIN NIGERIA had reported that despite being fully vaccinated, a Michigan couple has lost their lives to COVID-19, one minute apart and holding hands.
The late husband, aged 59, and his wife, aged 66, from Grand Rapids, Michigan, both got the disease earlier in September, before a family camping trip. Both had underlying health conditions.
Described by their surviving daughter Sarah, the Grand Rapids couple were churchgoing and outdoors enthusiasts who put family first.
“The love that they found together after a previous marriage is fantastic,” Sarah told Fox 17. “They were the people that you just looked at and you were like, ‘I want to be old like that, I want that love when I’m that age.’”
“[My dad] called me before our family camping trip and said he wasn’t feeling good but he thinks it’s just like sinus, and [Linda] caught it and she’s like, ‘He gave me his cold,’” Sarah explained.
