Early reports suggesting that the Covid-19 coronavirus wouldn't affect Black people in the same manner as it does Whites or Asians seem to be wrong. Now it appears that the coronavirus could very well wreak havoc on Black people all over the world.

The latest African American to die is Tre Wiser. His cousin announced yesterday on Facebook that the healthy father of three passed away, after a bout with the deadly virus.

Here's what she had to say:

This time last week I thought people were overreacting about the coronavirus.

My mom and I prayed every night and read Palms 91 because we knew this virus was not going to hit our family.

My cousin passed away this morning from the virus. He was a father, husband, son, uncle, cousin, brother, and believer in God.

He got this virus because someone who was sick didn’t follow protocols and didn’t stay at home like they were supposed to. I know God has a reason for everything, but this one I don’t understand.

This virus is not a joke. He was so young. So for those of you that are young and think this virus won’t hurt you, it can. I love you with all my heart Tre Iluvmyfamily Hiser.

I’m begging all of you to please stay home if you are able to.
