Kansas City Westside Latino Community Suffers Tragic COVID-19 Loss Today

A miserable year proved even worse for a Latino enclave in Kansas City today.

A prominent and beloved Latina leader died from COVID-19 complications this morning. News of her passing quickly resonated through the Westside and across the city given that her family and friends are some of the most influential and active people in all of the metro.

The deets don't belong to TKC so we'll only publish whatever followup we can find from MSM. Still, we couldn't ignore social media lighting up with tribute and memorials for her passing. Even amid sadness throughout the local Latino community, there was still some debate about the politics of this horrific plague. 

Hacks have used the pandemic for political gain and the tragic losses have been trumpeted as cheap talking points to win mostly pointless debates.

Meanwhile, Americans continue to suffer under the shadow of death as leadership from nearly every strata has been primarily concerned with amassing power.

Sorry for your loss, T.

The deaths are starting to pile and it looks like there will be a lot more before the vaccine goes into full distribution.

Thank President Trump for the vaccine. It was his team that accomplished it.

Covid is not the seasonal flu. It wont go away like magic. More covid deaths in USA today that ALL our WWII dead. WW2 was over 4 years long. Covid less than a year. This is really a serious virus.

Estimates are 600,000 dead by end of 2021 in USA.

Sure, 600K dead by end of 2021, and without the kung flu we would have had 550K dead - what horror, what scandal.

Deaths in excess of 9/11 every day?
Over 100 "9/11"s so far, and rising?
And you discount the seriousness of this?

Just because your "Beloved Leader" screwed up and then tried to cover up his mistakes by lying to the American People doesn't mean you Cultists get a free ride and can continue to spout the right-wing mythology without being challenged.

And @6:24, none of the three Pharma Companies that developed these serums got a damned thing from Trump, they did it entirely on their own.

Hell, the only money paid out so far for "serum development" was the $120 million paid to an obscure Pharma "Company" that is run by a guy out of his Florida Condo, and which turns out to be a tiny part of the Trump Organization.
