GENEVA — A Geneva mother of four boys who tested positive for coronavirus is continuing her fight against the illness, as her husband warns the situation is serious.

Stacy Unsinger, 51, is in a medically induced coma and on a ventilator at University Hospitals in Cleveland, according to her husband Lee. She was transferred to Cleveland late Monday from UH Geneva Medical Center after being admitted last Thursday for double pneumonia.

“She’s in Cleveland and I’m quarantined here at the house,” said Lee Unsinger during a phone interview Tuesday morning. “I can’t be with her. They’re not letting anybody in that hospital, so I call them a lot.” 

He said doctors are treating Stacy with new medications, including a malaria drug, but “there’s no guarantees,” he said, obviously distraught.

Unsinger described his wife as “an amazing woman and devoted Christian,” who thanked God for her illness so she could warn others. She’s the type of person to always think of others, he said.

Stacy Unsinger also suffers with a severe auto-immune deficiency. Before becoming ill, she was terrified of being exposed to the coronavirus. She stayed home, but still got it, he said.

Unsinger said his wife is not improving and he requests prayers for his family.

“People need to take this seriously,” he said. “This is very, very serious.”
