Just Like The Flu ...

Body count mounting ... thanks for praying.
Kansas City Star: “A Missouri state lawmaker who is running for Congress has announced that her husband has died after the couple was diagnosed with COVID-19.”

“Republican State Rep. Sara Walsh, of Ashland, thanked everyone who had prayed for her husband, Steve Walsh, in announcing Thursday in a tweet that he had died. He was 63.”

“Neither she nor her husband had been vaccinated against COVID-19. KRCG-TV reported that she also said she was not concerned about being vaccinated because she had been healthy since the pandemic began.”

Greenville County Republican Party leader Pressley Stutts died Thursday morning after battling COVID-19 for nearly a month.

Stutts' death was confirmed by Dan Harvell, who represents the Anderson County Republican Party on the South Carolina Republican Party's executive committee.

“I really don’t have words to say about the imprint that he left on the political landscape in South Carolina," Harvell said. “He had the kind of personality that enabled him to get done what others couldn’t do.

“He was like the brother I never had.”

Stutts and his wife were rushed to the hospital Aug. 1 after his oxygen levels dropped. "The COVID has created double pneumonia in my lungs," he said in a Facebook post at the time.

He further said in his post that as a proponent for "freedom and liberty," no one should be forced to wear a mask and get vaccinated.
