According to Eduard's niece, he was worried about going to work during the pandemic because of a preexisting condition. Eduard tested positive for COVID-19 on November 2.

Some days Eduard felt okay and on other days he would cough a lot and have a high fever, according to Denver7. He called 911 but according to his niece, it was too late.

Eduard sadly passed away from coronavirus on Monday, November 16. He, unfortunately, died just two weeks after he tested positive for COVID-19.

According to Denver7, his niece stated that she hopes that people will be just a little bit safer, think twice before booking flights and seek medical help before it's too late by sharing her uncle's story.

Eduardo's niece says she doesn't feel like it's safe to travel right now, according to Denver7.

According to Denver7, Eduardo was sadly the ninth TSA agent to pass away from COVID-19 in the U.S. and 62 TSA employees have tested positive at DIA alone.

We can't imagine losing our loved one, especially just two weeks after we found out that they were tested positive for COVID-19. Our thoughts go out to his family, friends and coworkers.
