Coronavirus Kills 4 Members of New Jersey Christian Family

While the COVID-19 virus continues to claim many victims across the United States, one churchgoing New Jersey family has been left in tatters after losing four loved ones in the space of a week.

On Wednesday night, 73-year-old Grace Fusco died from the illness just hours after her son, Carmine, succumbed to the same fate. Five days prior, Fusco's daughter Rita Fusco-Jackson had perished after contracting the disease. Then, on Thursday, yet more devastation—another of Grace's children, Vincent Fusco, fell victim to the virus.
