During this difficult time, people are trying to find their way. It’s so tragic when we hear of someone dying from the Coronavirus. Disney has responded to Mr. Ghazarian’s death.
Per TMZ.com, Jeffrey Ghazarian, who lived in Glendora, CA, recently visited Disney World and Universal theme parks two weeks ago. According to his family, he flew into Orlando for a business conference. He then extended his trip to visit Disney World and Universal with friends.
Earlier today, we reported Mr. Ghazarian’s death, including his pre-existing conditions. Read details here from Kenny’s article.
According to TMZ, he developed a cough. Then a day later, he began coughing up blood. The next day, March 9, he returned to California through the LAX Airport and was admitted to the ER.
At that time, he received a pneumonia diagnosis and was instructed to self-quarantine at home while he waited for Coronavirus (COVID-19) testing results.
On March 14, Mr. Ghazarian arrived at the hospital by ambulance, where he was admitted, and placed in the Intensive Care Unit. Sadly, he did not recover from this and died just 5 days later.
