UPDATE: Broward Teachers Union President Anna Fusco clarified on Friday August 13, it was three, not four, Broward County School employees who passed away during a 24-hour period. Two teachers and a teachers assistant.

The fourth death was a Broward County Public Schools graduate with close ties to the school district through her job.

Ironically, or morbidly, Broward County’s School Board just voted to defy Gov. DeSantis’ order to drop the mask mandate. Jeez, I wonder why? Perhaps the prospect of more teachers dying was a consideration for them, but not DeathSantis.

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – When it comes to picking its victims, COVID-19 does not discriminate.

The vicious virus, in less than one day this week, between Tuesday and Wednesday, claimed the lives of three Broward County school teachers and one of its assistant teachers.

Broward Teachers Union President Anna Fusco said, “Within a 24-hour span, we had an assistant teacher pass away, a teacher at her school pass away, an elementary teacher pass away and another teacher at a high school.”

You would think this stunning number of educators dead from COVID in such a short time period, with less than one week before school begins, would be unfathomable, but Fusco says she hears about such tragedies way too often.
