A married Michigan couple who were fully-vaccinated against COVID-19 both died of the virus just one minute apart.
Cal Dunham, 59, and wife Linda, 66, ‘gained their angel wings’ Sunday despite taking precautions against the virus and being inoculated against it, relatives said.
The couple, who had undisclosed underlying health conditions, fell ill earlier this month during a family camping trip, the couple’s grieving daughter Sarah Dunham said.
‘[My dad] called me before our family camping trip and said he wasn’t feeling good but he thinks it’s just like sinus, and [Linda] caught it and she’s like, he gave me his cold,’ she told Fox17.
‘The third day they woke me up and said, “We’ve got to go because we don’t feel well.” So I packed them all up and they left.’
Dr. Bryan Ardis and Owen look at the case numbers from New York after vaccines and Remdesivir.
The pair was hospitalized within days and placed on ventilators. Both suffered from pre-existing conditions.
They died while holding hands; Cal passed away at 11:07 a.m., and his wife followed at 11:08 a.m.
Cal Dunham updated his Facebook profile picture with a border May 15 to reflect getting his vaccine.
When friends commented that they had also gotten the jab, he commended them as being ‘awesome.’
