Now, three weeks later, she’s says her son’s condition is getting worse. Dorsey told me she left her job in Atlanta after her son was diagnosed with COVID-19. She admits that at first, she knew for sure that he would only be in the hospital for a short amount of time because she says he’s always been healthy. “He’s on a ventilator; it’s on 100% as strong as it can be to give him oxygen,” she said. “They have to lay him on his tummy and they kind of elevate his arms above him and you just watch his back go up in these jerking motions because you know it’s the machine pushing air and life into him.”
Lydia Dorsey said her son, D’Anthony Dorsey is a marine biology teacher at Auburndale High School. “This can’t be happening to my baby – not my baby,” said mother, Lydia Dorsey. “He had no pre-existing conditions or any health issues; he’s only 24.”
“He did everything right, he never got in trouble he was always a good kid; he doesn’t deserve this,” Dorsey said. “I wish it could have been me and not my baby.” D’Anthony Dorsey, an Auburndale high school teacher, on ventilator after COVID-19 exposure
