The father of an football coach at a suburban Kansas City high school said he hopes his unvaccinated son’s death from COVID-19 will convince people that the disease “is real.”

Kim and Carolyn Burnett, told KMBC-TV reports that their son, Chris Burnett, 34, died Saturday after two weeks in the hospital. He coached football for Olathe East High School and an all-female team called the Kansas City Glory. He also was studying to be a physical education teacher.
