Heartbreak and Hope after COVID: The Donna Fox Story, is a behind-the-scenes story of a hospital nurse whose husband and father get Covid 19, are treated together and die within days of each other.
The documentary was shot and edited by Lexington Medical Center employees, says Lyle Schulze, WIS’s GM.
“We made the commitment to broadcast this documentary and turn it into a one-hour live special using the principals from the documentary after we viewed the powerful documentary,” Schulze says.
According to Schulze, from the beginning of the pandemic, “the media were excluded from covering the story in the hospitals. Slowly, TV stations are being given access to the caregivers in their element. And this is truly the story that we have not seen entirely. The power of local TV to deliver facts is where the COVID-19 story has really been revealed.”
