Bus Driver Who Complained About Passengers Openly Coughing Dies Of COVID-19

Right from health workers, the police, shopkeepers and transport service providers to sanitation workers; every person working presently to extend essential services to the public amid coronavirus outbreak throughout the world is no less than a hero. They are all putting their lives in jeopardy to make things run smoothly for fellow humans during the deadly outbreak.

And, all we can do for them is to be thankful and maintain social distancing and the utmost hygiene to minimize the risk of infecting them.

Well, a Detroit bus drive, Jason Hargrove, shared a video on Facebook a few days complaining about the passengers coughing openly.

“We’re out here as public workers, doing our job, trying to make an honest living to take care of our families,” he said in the video. “But for you to get on the bus, and stand on the bus, and cough several times without covering up your mouth, and you know that we’re in the middle of a pandemic, that lets me know that some folks don’t care,” he had added, reports IE.

After a week and a half of his video, health officials have confirmed that Jason has died due to complications after contracting coronavirus, reports NZ Herald.

Talking about Jason’s sad demise, Detroit mayor, Mike Duggan said, “I don’t know how you can watch it and not tear up. He knew his life was being put in jeopardy, even though he was going to work for the citizens of Detroit every day, but somebody just didn’t care. Somebody who didn’t take this seriously and now he’s gone.”

Jason’s death has irked Twitter and people could not hold themselves back from calling out ‘covidiots’ whose careless attitude is worsening the pandemic.

It’s time to respect and care for the people who are putting their lives on stake for us amid coronavirus outbreak. Negligence is surely not what they deserve. May Jason’s soul rest in peace!
