People And The Pandemic, Episode 3: Anil Gharmalkar, Jalon Evans-Gharmalkar And Tamarah Chancellor
A first-hand account of what it's like to be hospitalized with COVID-19, and how a family handled the situation.
The term "essential worker" covers a wide range of jobs that proved especially vital when Kansans were hiding out at home from the coronavirus.
Anil Gharmalkar of Oswego has one of those jobs: He’s a truck driver, and traveled across several states with trailer-loads of food so there would be meat on grocery story shelves.
It was on the road where COVID-19 caught up with Gharmalkar. He, his wife and his mother spoke with the Kansas News Service about how the virus wears down your body and your mind.
