Family pleads caution after college student dies of COVID-19
WARSAW, IND. » The family of a 20-year- old college student who died after experiencing COVID-19 symptoms is now pleading for others to take the virus seriously. Bethany Nesbitt, a student at Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana, was found dead Oct. 29 in her dorm room after having COVID-19 symptoms for about 10 days and awaiting a test result, according to a statement from her family.
The third-year psychology major from Grand Ledge, Michigan, had asthma and was previously taken to the emergency room. Doctors determined Nesbitt likely had COVID-19, but it was not a severe case and she seemed to be recovering.
Kosciusko County Coroner Anthony Ciriello ruled Tuesday her official cause of death a blood clot, noting that “while COVID did play a role in contributing to the death, it was not caused by COVID.”
