A scathing Arizona obituary for a dad who died from the coronavirus blames pols’ “carelessness’’ for his death — with the man’s daughter saying the state’s governor “has blood on his arms.’’
“Mark, like so many others, mustn’t have died from COVID-19,” reads the obit for Mark “Black Jack” Urquiza, a Phoenix resident who died June 30 at age 65 from the contagion.
“His death is because of the carelessness of the politicians who proceed to jeopardize the well being of brown our bodies by a transparent lack of management, refusal to acknowledge the severity of this disaster, and lack of ability and unwillingness to provide clear and decisive course on easy methods to decrease danger,” the posting bitterly added, referring to the late Mexican American resident, who labored in manufacturing.
Urquiza’s daughter, Kristin Urquiza, informed the Arizona Republic, “Gov. [Doug] Ducey has blood on his arms.
“That blood is the blood of my father and almost 2,000 different Arizonans which have died to date,” she mentioned.
Ducey has been criticized for reopening the state too quickly, prompting a hovering resurgence of the virus that compelled him to just lately begin up restrictions once more.
