Disney has issued a statement regarding the 34-year old man who died after testing positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19) and visiting Walt Disney World.
“We offer our deepest condolences to the family of Mr. Ghazarian. We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and remain in regular contact with health agencies for information and guidance.”
According to an article written by TMZ, a 34-year old California man has died from Coronavirus (COVID-19) less than 2 weeks after visiting Walt Disney World.
Here’s what TMZ reports:
According to his family, he flew from L.A. to Orlando on March 2 for a work conference, but stayed a few extra days to visit Disney World and Universal theme parks with friends.
We’re told on March 7 he developed a cough, and the next day he coughed up blood. He flew back to LAX on March 9 … and immediately went to the ER, where he also had a high fever.
The family says a chest x-ray confirmed Jeff had pneumonia, and he was tested for COVID-19 and sent home with fluids and antibiotics and instructed to self-quarantine until he got the results back.
We’re told the results came back positive on March 13, and Jeff was provided a portable oxygen meter to keep an eye on his levels … which took a turn for the worse that afternoon.
It appears Jeffrey was an at-risk patient. He had a history of asthma and frequent bronchitis as a child, though he outgrew that. He also had beat testicular cancer back in 2016.
Jeff passed away on March 19th.
