52-year-old ‘The View’ host Sunny Hostin just opened up about something very heartbreaking during today’s episode of the panel!
Hostin revealed that both her husband’s parents succumbed to the coronavirus over the holidays, saying: “After speaking with [my husband], he felt that from a public health standpoint it was very important for me to share that we are deeply saddened that Manny lost both of his parents over the holidays. He lost his father on Dec. 28 and he lost his mother on New Year’s Day, both to COVID. They were both physicians and they were both very careful. They didn’t celebrate Thanksgiving with us because we all decided it wasn’t safe. And after a lot of contact tracing, we still don’t know how they contracted this virus.”
Hostin then thanked the healthcare workers who were caring for her in-laws, saying that “they were doing God’s work” after they let her and her husband Manny FaceTime his parents as they passed away. Sunny continued: “COVID is very, very serious. It is not a joke, it is not a hoax. We want everyone to know that you may think you’re healthy and you won’t be impacted, but you may be an asymptomatic carrier. You could put someone you love at risk. So please, I beg of you, social distance, wear your mask, wash your hands, and if you get the opportunity to take this vaccine, take it.” Watch below and let us know what you think:
