Mary Mallon was born in 1869 in Cookstown, County Tyrone, in what is now Northern Ireland. She migrated to the United States in 1883 or 1884. She lived with her aunt and uncle for a time and later found work as a cook (ironic, that) for affluent families.
Quote:
From 1900 to 1907, Mallon worked as a cook in the New York City area for seven families. In 1900, she worked in Mamaroneck, New York, where, within two weeks of her employment, residents developed typhoid fever. In 1901, she moved to Manhattan, where members of the family for whom she worked developed fevers and diarrhea, and the laundress died. Mallon then went to work for a lawyer and left after seven of the eight people in that household became ill.
Over the course of her career, she used a number of names, and is believed to have infected 51 people, three of whom died, with typhoid fever, and the first person in the United States identified as an asymptomatic carrier of the disease. She became known, colloquially, as "typhoid Mary", and was incarcerated for the remainder of her life for refusing to acknowledge her status as a carrier or get treatment.

Donald Trump refuses to be tested for COVID-19. Trump met with Brazilian official who tested positive for coronavirus (Guardian). Australian official who met with Ivanka Trump and Barr last week tests positive for coronavirus (CNN). Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Tests... Trump: Reports (Daily Beast).Trump and Pence Won’t Be Tested After Meeting With Infected Brazilian Official (NYT).

What if we've got the sequence wrong? All of these officials tested positive after meeting with Trump (or his family). What if they got their exposure from him? Is he "COVID Don"?

A lot of us have know for a long time that anything Donald Trump touches dies. The United States, as we know it, is about to die.
