The teenager had participated in a religious festival during which the wearing of the mask and social distancing were not in order.
Last June, Carsyn Leigh Davis, a 17-year-old girl from Florida, died of coronavirus. On June 10, she participated in a religious celebration gathering around a hundred students. Party during which the wearing of a mask and social distancing were not compulsory. 3 days later, she developed the first symptoms of the coronavirus. To treat her, her mother, a nurse, made her take hydroxychloroquine. Seeing her daughter's condition deteriorate, she also plugged her into her grandfather's respirator. Carsyn’s mother decided to take him to the hospital, where she tested positive for coronavirus. After being transferred to the Miami Children's Hospital, the teenager died on June 19.
The death of Carsyn particularly shocked the local community and many question the treatment given to Carsyn by his mother. In the United States, chloroquine has been recommended for the coronavirus by Donald Trump, despite numerous warnings from the scientific community. Before their daughter became ill, Carole Brunton Davis, Carsyn’s mother had been very skeptical about the virus and the effectiveness of wearing a mask. When Carsyn was hospitalized, she complained on Facebook about treatments administered by medical personnel. "I am quarantined with her in her room and I assist her in her care. Doctors refuse to give her hydroxychloroquine, citing new studies that say the drug is not effective and may be harmful. Using it goes against their policy. " Before her daughter became ill, she also shared publications contradicting the effectiveness of the mask. She has since deleted her Facebook account.
Carsyn suffered serious health problems for most of his life, including a nervous system dysfunction, cancer in his young age and "morbid obesity," according to a medical report. A fundraiser had been opened by Carsyn's parents to pay for the medical costs related to the young woman's coronavirus.
