In Florida, where coronavirus infections are notching daily records, Mariely Ferraro, 40, a heart-monitor technician, used a different word to describe a disease she contracted seven weeks ago, along with her entire family: “Scary.”
Her children have recovered, but she has been unable to shake COVID-19. “I think the situation in Florida is scary,” Ferraro said. “The numbers are climbing, and the numbers are scary. I wish there was a way that it could be explained. If there were 9,000 people in one day, are they symptomatic? Do they have fevers? Are they sick?” (The New York Times).
