a view of a city next to a body of water: A COVID-19 outbreak among the IT staff at the Manatee County, Florida, government building has killed 2. Manatee County Florida

“Two staffers in a government IT department in Manatee County, Florida, died of COVID-19 following an outbreak at their office, the county said Friday

.The first staffer died at a local hospital Monday, County Administrator Scott Hopes told the Bradenton Herald. A second staffer died Thursday at their home one day after being diagnosed with the virus by a doctor, Hopes told the outlet.

Three other employees were hospitalized inintensive care, according to the report, and a sixth person who worked in close contact with the infected people was vaccinated against COVID-19 and did not contract the virus.

All of the staffers who tested positive for the virus first reported experiencing a sore throat, Hopes told the outlet.

None of the employees who fell ill or died from COVID-19 were “elderly,” he said. Hopes told the Herald he feared that the severe cases may be a result of one of the stronger variants of COVID-19.

The two people who died were both in their 50s, according to the report. The youngest person of the three others who were hospitalized with COVID-19 was in their “late 30s,” according to the report.”

About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)

    It is damn shame when such an important thing like these vaccinations became political footballs. Trump spoke loud and long concerning his anti science views regards COVID, but he iand his wife got their vaccinations in a whisper.

    They followed Trump so slavishly, then seemed to forget he had been vaccinated. The responsibility for all this lies with him, undoubtedly.
    Best wishes, Pete.
