More than 1,000 people in Southwest Florida have died of COVID-19 since the onset of the pandemic. They include grandparents and grandchildren, spouses and partners, children, friends, and neighbors.
The impact of these losses will be felt by our community for years. In responding to the death of a COVID-19 patient in the early days of the pandemic, Lee Health CEO and President Larry Antonucci said, “The virus isn’t just affecting its victims, but also friends and families. The human toll is real and we must not forget that.”
