It was a solemn day at a Fresno doctor’s office, with the doctor no longer in.
The staff maintained business as usual, despite their devastating loss.
Well-known Fresno physician Dr. William Garnica recently lost his battle with COVID-19.
“He was diagnosed with COVID, he had COVID complications, and he was getting better but he lose the fight,” said corporate office manager Arcelia Diaz.
It was a battle he fought for months. But on Friday, his staff learned Garnica died from the virus.
Dr. Garnica was affiliated with Community Medical Centers, spending some time working at Clovis Community and Community Regional Medical Centers.
Just at those two hospitals, there are currently 107 patients being treated for the coronavirus.
