PRICE OF DENIAL: COSTS LIFE AN EXAMPLE

Sixteen-year-old Carsyn Davis was a dedicated student at the Fort Myers youth ministry, Florida.  She loved Jesus. So, naturally, Carsyn was among the hundred or so kids to attend the church’s reopening event on June 10. Carsyn didn’t wear a mask when she attended the party, even though she was obese, asthmatic, and had a history of childhood cancer and a rare autoimmune disorder - wearing a mask wasn’t required by state officials despite the known risks of indoor transmission. Less than two weeks later, on June 23, Carsyn died of pneumonia brought on by COVID-19. She had turned 17 on June 21, in the hospital. Carsyn started feeling sick three days later, according to the medical examiner’s report.

“She developed frontal headache, sinus pressure, mild cough,” the report said. “The family thought her symptoms were due to a sinus infection.”
