His nephew, who's unknowingly infected with the virus interacted with seven relatives , who subsequently contracted the virus, transmitted it to 10 other family members, including two young children.

“When people started getting sick, we really let everyone have it,” Barbosa told WFAA-TV. “

We knew this was going to happen, I mean, this whole time this has been going on we’ve been terrified.”

His sister Kathy is recovering and felling better, despite undergoing chemo treatment. However, his parents are in much difficult situation. He said his father, Frank, is in the ICU and is fighting for his life.

Thankful, Frank received a plasma donation Wednesday from recovered coronavirus patient, according to Barbosa's Facebook page.
