MUNGIN’S FIRST FEW DAYS OF COVID-19

It wasn’t until Mungin was barely breathing on her way to the hospital for the third time that the doctors decided to test for her coronavirus. Before that, they only treated her for asthma.

The teacher’s sister shared: “My sister went to the hospital on the 15th of March for fever and shortness of breath. They gave her albuterol for asthma and gave her a shot of Toradol for her headache.”

The days following her first hospital visit were no better as the teacher still experienced having shortness of breath until the 18th.

Her sister decided to call an ambulance the following day, where she was treated with a nebulizer. According to Munchin, one of the paramedic members insisted her lungs were clear.

“He insinuated she was having a panic attack. She kept saying, ‘I can’t breathe,” Mungin’s sister narrated. A doctor said that they didn’t have sufficient tests for the virus during their second visit, and so they went home.

Sneed received a nomination for a Grammy in 1999, after his album “Higher” became a hit and launched his career.

MUNGIN’S LAST DAY

Her sister, Mia, watched over Mungin the entire night, but by March 20, Mungin was no longer breathing. She was rushed to the hospital and put on a ventilator, but it was too late.

After being treated for the virus, Munchin’s oxygen levels improved, which made the doctors decide not to transfer the patient to a hospital with an ECMO machine.
