Lupus is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation of the joints, skin, and other organs. Stone's caption read, "My sister Kelly, who already has lupus, now has Covid-19. This is her hospital room. One of the Non-Mask wearers did this. She does not have an immune system. The only place she went was the pharmacy," she added. The 'Casino' star shared that her sister Kelly lives in the US county in Montana where members of the public cannot get tested for coronavirus unless they are symptomatic.
She also shared how once a person has been tested, it takes around five days to get test results back. On her Instagram post, Stone continued, "Can YOU FACE THIS ROOM ALONE? Wear a mask! For yourself and others. Please." In another Instagram post, Stone had posted a video where she had provided more details about her sister's condition as well as how coronavirus had impacted her family.
She added how her sister Kelly's husband Bruce also contracted coronavirus and is "fighting for his life" as she stated that the couple had "stayed at home as long as they could." Stone said that her mother who has had two heart attacks, five stents, and a pacemaker within the last five months had not been able to get tested, neither were the nurses who have been looking after her sister and sister's husband.
She revealed that she has been trying to contact the governor of Montana and the health department, but her attempts have been unsuccessful so far. "Those nurses are risking their lives and cannot get tested. They keep saying that the risks are so small and that you might not die and it’ll be fine, but I’m telling you what’s going on with my family," Stone said.
"My grandmother died of Covid and my godmother died of Covid. My sister and her husband are fighting for their lives and my sister is not doing well," she revealed. She concluded her video by encouraging her fans and followers to vote and shared her support for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Many social media users commented on Stone's posts saying that they were praying for the family. One such user wrote, "I hope your sister heals fast. Trump is to blame. The idea that people neglect wearing masks is entirely on him." Another user had shared, "Why don’t they show more hospital pics on the news and more personal stories that hit home with viewers instead of all the political crap. THIS is what America needs to see and feel!!!!"
"I lost my sister last month to COVID she didn’t leave the house except for bank and she got it anyway, I hope your sister gets better soon, you and her are in my prayers," commented yet another.
