CNN’s Sara Sidner has been covering the coronavirus pandemic for almost a year. Her reports began from Kirkland, Washington almost 11 months ago. Since then she has filed dozens of stories on Covid cases inside nursing homes and hospitals. Today while reporting on a California family that was forced to have a funeral for their loved one in a parking lot, Sidner broke down saying, “This is the tenth hospital that I have been in, and to see the way that these families have to live after this, and the heartache that goes so far and so wide… It’s really hard to take.” Her report and the remarks that followed are a must-watch. It’s a reminder that while many of us haven’t lost a loved one to covid, it has impacted so many lives, and as Sidner says at the end of the piece:

“Please listen to what this family is saying, don’t let this be you, do whatever you can to keep this from killing your family members,  and your neighbors, friends, teachers, doctors, and firefighters… you have to do your part.”
