However, by the next day, Jermaine's temperature had gone up even higher and that's when they decided to go to the emergency room.
During their visit there, Erika was asked to leave his room for a chat - making it the last time she would ever see her husband alive. Not only was Erika told that her husband tested positive for COVID-19, but she was also told that she couldn't stay with her man.
Undeterred, the woman focused on helping her child through school and regularly texting Jermaine. Things continued that way until she got a call from Jermaine's doctor on the afternoon of March 19 to notify her of his passing.

While Erika is dealing with the pains of losing her husband, CNN shared the story of 26-year-old Fiona Lowenstein who believed that she could handle having the coronavirus while at home.
What the option brought Fiona was some breathing difficulty which meant that she had to spend two nights in the hospital.
Luckily for her, she made it out of the woods and is now dedicated to urging other young adults to take warnings about the pandemic seriously.
