The very first case of COVID-19 was identified almost a year ago—back in December of 2019. Since then, more than 56.2 million cases have been confirmed, with more than 1.34 million dying from it. And for some mysterious reason, even to this day, a vast number of people still refuse to believe that this virus is a serious one and it’s not playing games.

A nurse named Ashley (TheBlondeRN on Twitter) from Texas knows the situation from first-hand experience. The woman used to work in the OR, but recently, she was transferred to the COVID intensive care unit. After working with COVID-19 patients for a while, the woman decided to quit her job, and apparently, people’s ignorance and the amounts of disinformation surrounding the virus were the reason behind the tough decision she had to make.

Recently, Ashley decided to go on Twitter and publicly answer the common question she’s been asked quite a few times after quitting her job. “I resigned from my job last week and I’ve been asked several times, ‘What was the breaking point?’ I don’t know a specific one, but I’ll share this,” the woman wrote in her post. In the following tweets, Ashley explains the reasoning behind her decision.
