She went to Urgent Care with breathing difficulties on Tuesday March 17th, was placed on a ventilator Thursday March 19th, and passed away Sunday evening on March 22 with her mother at her side. She had no preexisting conditions and was “young and healthy”. It is not known from whom or where she caught COVID-19.
Dixon’s cousin Belafae Johnson Jr. told the St. Louis American:
Dixon could have caught the virus anywhere between family functions, work or social gatherings, Johnson said.
“That’s what makes it so unnerving,” he said. “That’s why we wanted to get out and share her story and give out the most accurate information as we can.”St. Louis American Jazmond Dixon, 31, is first COVID-19 death in St. Louis City
