About Kious Jordan Kelly, RN

It wasn't until Kious Kelly was intubated in the ICU that his sister found out he had the COVID-19.

Marya Patrice Sherron, Kelly's only sibling, told BuzzFeed News she received a text from him on March 18 saying that he was "sick in the ICU, but OK."

He told her not to tell their parents because he didn't want them to worry.

Their parents knew that Kelly, a 48-year-old nurse at New York City's Mount Sinai West hospital, tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, days ago. But they weren't aware that his condition had deteriorated; Kelly, who had asthma, told them it was mild and that he was doing fine.

For almost four years, Camille Fuoco weathered treatments for metastatic breast cancer. Her sons, Joseph and Peter, and sister, Carol, were awed by her resilience and encouraged by her ability to bounce back as the disease progressed.

"Assistant nursing manager Kious Kelly, age 48, died at Mount Sinai West Hospital in Manhattan on Tuesday night, a week after he was admitted upon testing positive for coronavirus." -Daily Mail
