A Michigan bus driver who posted a video about passengers coughing without covering their mouths reportedly died Wednesday of COVID-19.
The Detroit Department of Transportation Drivers’ Union told WJBK that Jason Hargrove, 50, was placed in quarantine on March 25. On March 21, the bus driver took to Facebook Live to talk about a passenger who didn’t cover her mouth as she coughed on the bus.
In the video, Hargrove claims eight or nine other passengers were on the bus when the woman coughed into the air, potentially exposing them to the deadly disease.

“We out here as public workers, doing our job, trying to make an honest living to take care of our families…but for you to get on the bus and stand on the bus and cough several times without covering up your mouth, and you know we’re in the middle of a pandemic, that lets me know that some folks don’t care,” Hargrove said in the video.
It’s not immediately known whether that incident led to Hargrove contracting the novel coronavirus.
Hargrove had worked for the Detroit Department of Transporation since 2016. He leaves behind a wife.
