After a month-long battle with COVID-19, Victoria Morris and her boyfriend, Henry Rolle, who are both 25, said they feared they would die together as they toiled through an unforgettable experience with the virus.

“I just kept praying, ‘Please don’t let us die,’” Morris said.

“Before I got tested, I was thinking I might have it. Hearing the health officials say they cannot do anything for you is like that whole dark cloud just sets over everything.”
