MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) - Minnesota Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan says the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic now has a personal connection to her.

On Sunday evening in an Instagram post, Flanagan said her older brother, Ron, died in Tennessee on Saturday from COVID-19. She says he was diagnosed with cancer several weeks ago, had a compromised immune system and contracted COVID-19.

"To many, he'll be a statistic: Tennessee's second COVID-related death. But to me, I'll remember a loving, older brother, uncle, father, and husband," she said.

She says Ron was placed in a medically-induced coma and was placed on a ventilator.

"He fought it as hard as he could but it was simply too much for his body," she said.
