A Connecticut woman is angry and warning people that COVID-19 is real after losing two loved ones to the disease.
Jennifer Ritz Sullivan says her step-father's mother died last month from COVID-19 and her mother died earlier this month at St. Vincent's Medical Center in Bridgeport.
Sullivan's mother, 66-year-old Earla Dawn Dimitriadis of Stratford, was actively posting on her Facebook page up until the day she died. Sullivan says her mother wanted people to know how devastating the disease is and how people should really take it seriously.
"And all I hear is people debating whether or not to wear a mask and whether or not it encroaches on their freedoms and I'm mad," says Sullivan. "I'm mad and I'm hurt that this is being debated."
Sullivan says she is hopeful that vaccines will help save lives.
