Florida teen dead after conspiracy theorist mom took her to a church “COVID party” and gave her unprescribed drugs
A 17-year-old girl died of COVID-19 after being treated with unproven drugs by her own family.
Not only the Lee County girl was treated with unproven medicines, but they also put her on an oxygen tank previously used by her grandfather, News-Press reports. Moreover, the Florida teen attended a church party with 100 others just two weeks before dying of coronavirus, as revealed by the New York Post.
Carsyn Leigh Davis was taken to a hospital after a whole week of dangerous at-home treatment. Sadly, on June 23, the 17-year-old died of the virus. She is the youngest Lee County victim of the deadly disease.
The teen was at a 100-person church function nearly two weeks before losing her life to COVID-19.
According to the Miami-Dade Medical Examiner’s Office, the girl didn’t wear a protective face mask while at the party. They also claim that “social distancing was not followed” at the church. However, the church Carsyn attended while showing symptoms of the novel virus was not revealed.
Over the years, the Florida girl had struggled with many health issues, including obesity, an auto-immune disorder, and a rare nervous-system disorder that resolved when she was little. Carsyn’s mother, a nurse, and her father, a physician assistant, treated her with azithromycin – an antibiotic being studied as a potential COVID-19 treatment. As the report states, they have been giving her the antibiotic as a protective measure.
Unfortunately, the girl’s condition worsened when on June 13, she developed a frontal headache, sinus pressure, and mild cough. Her symptoms were a result of a sinus infection, as the family assumed.
Nearly a week later, when her mother noticed she looked “grey” while sleeping, she gave her an unspecified dose of hydroxychloroquine.
This drug, which is usually used for treating arthritis and lupus, has been promoted as a possible treatment for COVID-19. It is yet unknown whether the teen had a prescription for either of the drugs she was given.
However, hydroxychloroquine hasn’t been officially stated as an effective treatment of coronavirus. What’s more, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has warned residents not to take the drug outside of supervised hospital settings, as it may cause heart, liver, and kidney problems if not properly taken.
After giving their daughter these unproven medicines, Carsyn’s parents put her on an oxygen tank. They took the tank from her grandfather, who has a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. She was then taken to Gulf Coast Medical Center in south Fort Myers.
The girl was later transferred to The Golisano Children’s Hospital, where doctors confirmed she had COVID-19.
Although her family attempted to stop the healthcare workers from intubating her, their attempts failed. After being intubated, the 17-year-old was transferred again, this time to Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami.
On June 23, the girl lost in the battle with the deadly virus. It was only two days after her 17th birthday.
Her mother shared:
“We are incredibly saddened by her passing at this young age, but are comforted that she is pain-free.”
