Jason Hargrove, a bus driver in Detroit, raised alarms about COVID-19 after picking up a coughing passenger.
Jason, you will forever be the face of COVID for me. When I first saw this clip yesterday, I thought the anchor was going to toss to you in Detroit for an interview. Instead, after it aired, he said this:
Sadly, Hargrove was infected with coronavirus and died less than two weeks later.
Jason, you were 50. And you were loved.
And I will always remember you.
Jason died from COVID-19 on Wednesday, April 1st, 2020.
