Barber Dies From COVID-19 After Continuing To Cut Hair During Pandemic

By cosmic kev

Y’all, please stay home. A Mississippi barber has died from the coronavirus after his family says he continued to cut customers hair during the pandemic. Black people are dying at a disproportionate rate from COVID-19 in several states across the country, especially the south.

Eugene Thompson tested positive on March 22, and felt symptoms as early as March 17. However, it appeared that he was still accepting clients at his shop as well around that time, social media posts show. It also appears he was at a barber competition on March 15th.

Rest in peace to this man.
