College Student with COVID-19 Found Dead in Her Dorm Room

The family of a 20-year-old college student who died after experiencing COVID-19 symptoms is now pleading for others to take the virus seriously. Bethany Nesbitt, a student at Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana, was found dead October 29 in her dorm room after having COVID-19 symptoms for about 10 days and awaiting a test result, according to a statement from her family.

“The cause of death was a pulmonary embolism — the result of a blood clot — widely recognized as a common cause of death in COVID-19 patients,” her brother Stephen Nesbitt tweeted.

The third-year psychology major from Grand Ledge, Michigan, had asthma and was previously taken to the emergency room. Doctors determined Nesbitt likely had COVID-19, but it was not a severe case and she seemed to be recovering.
