The following are some tributes posted on social media to honor the life and the legacy of the deceased.
His name WAS Kious Kelly. He WAS a nurse. He WAS exposed to covid 19 while treating patients at a NYC hospital. He IS dead. 2 weeks after being exposed. We CANNOT lose 1 more health care worker to this. We NEED the DPA enacted to get the PPE healthcare workers must have! pic.twitter.com/44WpLPrz1j
