Reports are coming in about a 34-year-old man who just passed after having visited the Walt Disney World Resort and Universal Studios Orlando in Florida.
According to his family, Jeffrey Ghazarian flew from L.A. to Orlando on March 2, 2020, for a work conference. Ghazarian stayed a few extra days so he could visit the Walt Disney World Resort and other Central Florida theme parks during his work trip.
The timeline of how his illness progressed happened impressively fast. His family recounts that on March 7 he developed a cough, and the next day he coughed up blood. Once he returned to Los Angeles, CA on March 9th, he immediately visited the ER with a high fever.
It was at the hospital that a chest x-ray confirmed Jeff had pneumonia, and he was tested for COVID-19. The hospital sent Ghazarian home with fluids and antibiotics and instructed him to self-quarantine until he got the results back.
On March 13th, a positive result for coronavirus came in. Unfortunately, he took a quick downturn from there. Ghazarian passed away Thursday morning.
“He suffered a lot and put up a good fight. We will miss our Jeff every day but we are thankful for all the fun happy memories of the times we had together.” Shared Ghazarian’s sister.
Fans are using this tragic story to spread awareness on social media. Twitter user Mad World shared
