Wendy Williams fought tears as she reflected on the loneliness brought about by COVID-19 especially for victims who are forced to die alone.
The struggle of people during this COVID-19 pandemic is not lost on Wendy Williams. The talk show host recently broke down as she reflected on the immense sadness and loneliness the deadly virus has brought upon the world.
Wendy has been filming her talk show from her home since the threat of COVID-19 loomed large in the US and forced television studios to shut down.
“That thing about dying alone, I can’t even. That is unbearable…"
And while she's back on TV with a modified show filmed at home, Wendy empathizes with those who are suffering outside due to the virus.
During her recent telecast, the 55-year-old host could hardly keep it together when she spoke to COVID-19 survivor Michael Yo. Wendy fought tears as she acknowledged the pain of families whose relatives who were not as lucky and died in isolation.
“That thing about dying alone, I can’t even. That is unbearable…yesterday was Easter..I, just,” Wendy uttered in tears.
Due to the rate of which COVID-19 spreads, victims have been isolated from their families making it a lonely battle for them. Sadly, when these patients succumb to the virus, they also suffer a lonely death as they are stripped of the chance for a proper goodbye with their loved ones.
And though the World Health Organization has assured that corpses of COVID-19 victims do not pose a risk of transmitting the virus, many dead bodies are left unclaimed due to self-isolation restrictions.
As such, the growing number of unclaimed bodies in New York has prompted the government to transport them to an island in the Bronx where they are interred in a mass gravesite.
The US currently leads in the number of COVID-19 cases in the world. As of this writing, the Center for Disease Control reported a total of 529,005 cases and 22,252 deaths. These numbers are still expected to increase exponentially in the coming days.
