Wasco couple Billy Joe and Gloria Cox died late last month within days of each other after both contracted Covid-19..
Cox was 83. His wife was 77.
It all happened so fast, like a spreading wildfire, their daughter, McDaniel told The Bakersfield Californian.
"It started off like a bad cold. Later she developed an irritating cough. Eventually she got so weak she couldn't care for herself," she was quoted as saying.
Both were taken to Adventist Health Bakersfield. Both were already suffering from preexisting conditions, and they just didn't have the strength to fight off the virus, according to the report.
