Unfortunately, there’s no such thing as 100% safety when it comes to COVID vaccines, as the manufacturers themselves acknowledged from the start. Some people still develop serious illness due to the coronavirus even though they’ve been vaccinated. It also happened with a couple from Michigan that passed away, according to Yahoo News.
The two persons in question died less than a minute apart from each other and while they were holding hands. More precisely, Cal Dunham and Linda Dunham are their names. The man was 59 years old, while his wife was seven years older.
Assuming it was only a cold
The couple made the mistake of assuming that they’re only dealing with a cold when they started to feel sick. Both of them were hospitalized and provided ventilators.
On Sunday, the doctors gave up hope and informed that there was not much left they could do. When it was time to disconnect from life-support on Monday, the couple was reunited in a room. According to Fox-17, the couple died while holding hands – Cal passed away at 11:07 a.m., while his wife at 11:08 a.m.
Sarah Dunham, the couple’s daughter, declared as quoted by Yahoo News:
I’m angry because so many people are like, ‘If I catch COVID, I catch COVID. That’s what it is.’ No, it’s not,
It could be any person. It could be anybody. They did everything right. They did everything to protocol the way it should be done.
Sarah said about her mother, as also quoted by Yahoo News:
She always joked and said, ‘Well, you’re going to go before I am. I’ll be right there behind you. I promise,
She really was, like she really was right there behind him.
Breakthrough infections occur, but even so, the vaccinations for COVID keep saving a lot of lives.
