After contracting the coronavirus at a family gathering, a New Jersey mother, her two sons, and her daughter all died. Three other relatives remained hospitalized in critical condition. Fox News reported that it is believed that the novel coronavirus spread between relatives at a recent family gathering on March 10th.

An article by reported that Vincent Fusco died Thursday at CentraState Medical Center in Freehold – as said by Roseann Paradiso Fodera, a cousin and the lawyer representing the Fusco family.

Vincent’s death comes just a day after his mother, Grace Fusco, 73, died at the same facility. His brother, Carmine Fusco, also died Wednesday at St. Luke’s University Hospital-Bethlehem Campus, in Fountain Hill, Pennsylvania. His sister, Rita-Fusco Jackson, 55, died last Friday at the hospital in New Jersey. Rita later tested positive for COVID-19 – making her the state’s second victim.

“To imagine a week ago to get a phone call like this — if someone told me this story, I wouldn’t believe it,” Paradiso Fodera said. “It’s inconceivable to me.”

According to reports, three other family members remained hospitalized in critical condition as of Wednesday. “Nineteen additional relatives, including spouses and children of those hospitalized, have been tested for the coronavirus and have quarantined themselves in their separate homes before results become available,” said Fox News.

“This has been devastating for all of us,” Elizabeth Fusco, 42, said before her brothers’ and mother’s deaths. “Our hearts are broken over losing our sister, Rita. We just need help in saving our family members with life-saving medication.”

Reports say that the family had ties to the first person to die after becoming infected with the coronavirus in New Jersey. However, his connection to the family was not clear.

    There’s something being purposely left out of this article. For that reason, I’m calling fake news!

    This is either crappy journalism, or a hoax meant to spread fear. This virus just isn’t that deadly, to take out four of seven people hospitalized. There is something very wrong.

    In response to all three previous commenters re: this being fake news, it was also run by USA Today and the BBC, among others. One of them (BBC I think) stated that there were no known underlying conditions. But for several family members to die of this not-that-lethal virus would indicate that there may have been some genetic issues, or perhaps at the dinner they all had attended there was some really “off” food served that tanked their immune systems at just the wrong moment. They were not all elderly so that’s not it. Their names sound Italian, so maybe a mafia hit? I dunno. But it was definitely reported elsewhere. Maybe the writer of this blurb would share his/her fact-checking with us in the comments section…
