Two teachers from the same school district in Georgia died within hours of each others from complications from the coronavirus.
Both Dana Johnson and Cynthia Lindsey, educators at Cobb County Schools in the metro Atlanta area, died on Thursday.
The educators deaths were confirmed by Connie Jackson, president of the Cobb County Association of Educators, CNN reports. A GoFundMe page for the two teachers also confirmed the news.
Johnson, a teacher at Kemp Elementary School, had pre-existing conditions. Lindsey was a paraprofessional at Sedalia Park Elementary.
Patrick Key, a third educator from the county, died on Christmas Day from COVID-19 complications. Key was a beloved art teacher at Hendricks Elementary School in Powder Springs.
‘Teachers are willing to take a bullet for our kids. We shouldn’t have to be willing to, in the middle of a pandemic, die from a disease because we want to be teachers,’ Jackson said.
