Buffalo Common Council President Darius Pridgen on Sunday announced in a Facebook post that he has contracted the Coronavirus.

Pridgen said that “silence is a killer”, so he decided to be open about his diagnosis saying in part...

“The person who is coughing is not the biggest threat because you can tell. It’s the one who is not coughing. It’s that one who is walking around,” Pridgen said. “There are so many people out there who have it and don’t know it. This is the point.  They look healthy, they look strong, but they don’t know.”
