28-Year-Old Covid-19 Contact Tracer From Los Angeles Found Dead Five Days Later Due to Heart Failure

A 28-year-old Covid-19 contact tracer died suddenly at his apartment in Los Angeles due to heart failure.

Dominic Green worked as a contract employee for the Los Angeles Department of Public Health, providing assistance to the city government in the tracking of COVID-19 cases, according to Daily Mail.

“Green worked for Healthcare Staffing Professionals, a company that has provided Los Angeles County with nearly 1,000 workers since the pandemic began, with 80% working from home,” the news outlet reported.

Dominic is a medical epidemiologist who worked from home.

According to reports, he died suddenly at his home in bed and wasn’t found for days.

It was later discovered that Green died of cardiomyopathy, a condition that makes it harder for the heart to pump blood to the rest of the body, as reported by the Los Angeles Times.

More from Hastings Tribune:

Dominic, who was single and lived alone, had started his position as an epidemiologist in September, joining the 41% of white-collar workers who were fully remote, spending their days at home in jobs that were more disconnected and isolating than ever.

At the beginning and end of each shift, Dominic sent his bosses a mandatory email clocking in and out.

But the next day, a Thursday, Dominic didn’t send his 8 a.m. email. He missed the 4:30 p.m. sign-out too. Friday also came and went with no sign of Dominic.

Dominic’s parents, Joseph and Jeannine Green, who lived in Michigan, didn’t hear from him over the weekend, but that was not unexpected; they were used to waiting for texts from their busy son.

But by Monday, which was Martin Luther King Jr. Day, they grew worried.

Joseph checked their family cellular plan and saw Dominic’s phone had been dark for five days. Jeannine checked their joint bank account and saw it too showed no activity.

By the time Dominic’s body was discovered in his apartment Monday night, he was unrecognizable and had to be identified by the few fingerprints still visible on his hands.
