‘He died alone in an isolation room’: Friends and family remember...
EDMONTON – Family and friends are speaking out after a 36-year-old man died from COVID-19 earlier this week. Desmond Jarvis Brandon died of the illness in an Edmonton hospital. He is one of seven people under the age of 40 to die from COVID-19 in the province so far, but his relatives say it is seven too many.

“When they see a small percentage point of death, so they realize it’s not just a number, they’re all Desmonds, they’re all people we love and are our neighbors. , our family members, our friends and they die, ”says Carl Lovestrom, a friend of Desmond.

“During the time he was in the hospital, he was constantly on duty because he wanted people to know that this is serious. It’s a real problem that happens to real people. ”

“After that he said he was feeling a little better, then three days later he died alone in an isolation room. It makes me sad and angers me.

Lovestrom said Desmond has been careful to follow safety restrictions and provincial regulations and always wears a mask.

Desmond’s mother, Priscilla Kronen, who lives in Manitoba, echoed the sentiment. She told CTV News Edmonton, when she found out Desmond was sick, she wanted to travel to town to visit him. Desmond said no, due to the high number of cases and visitor restrictions.

“He was worried about my safety before his. This is how Dez was, ”she said.

“Two days later he left. That’s how quickly it took him.

Priscilla and Lovestrom are calling on people to take the pandemic more seriously in the hopes of saving another family from the grief they are feeling.

“I hope stories like Desmond’s make people turn around,” Lovestrom said.

“It might not happen until it happens to these people who don’t believe, and until it happens to their family and friends, and it’s really sad and that’s the last thing i want.

“It takes too many people on the stupidity of others not to wash their hands, not to disinfect their hands, not to wear their masks,” said Priscilla.

Desmond’s body has now been returned to Manitoba, but Priscilla says due to the restrictions, they won’t be able to have a normal funeral.

“We have a traditional ceremony when we lose loved ones, and for me, I can’t do that for my son. This is what hurts the most.

They both remember Desmond as a kind and loving young man, who was taken away too soon.

“He is 100% invested in helping people. He always put people before him, ”said Priscilla.

“If I ever needed anything, he would be there to lend a hand. He was a very helpful and kind person, ”Lovestrom said.

“He used to talk about what he wanted to be when he was old and now he will never understand that.
