Mother infects 17 of her 18 biological, adopted children with coronavirus before finding out she was positive

A woman in New York, United States, unknowingly infected 17 of her 18 children, including some who were adopted, because she showed no symptoms after contracting the coronavirus and

Brittany Jencik of Penfield, near Rochester, said she infected her kids while asymptomatic about five weeks ago, the Daily Mail of UK reported.

She eventually became ill from the virus and the children also began showing symptoms. Jencik says the deadly flu-like virus, also known as COVID-19, hit the family ‘like a freight train.’

“It was terrifying. I was a little ahead of them in the timing of it all,” the mother said.

“I was as afraid of my life as I had ever been, and not much scares me,” she added.

It was not clear how Jencik herself was infected.

Jencik says that for a couple of days while she was her sickest, “I was extremely concerned that I was never going to be the same.”
