“I agree that I voted for Donald Trump in 2016,” he wrote. “I agree that the conspiracy over COVID-19 goes deep into the web. I participated in all the bad behavior of Trump’s most radical and rowdy cult followers.
“I was a tough ass who stood up for God-given rights. Very soon, I started to predict the characters soup about this ‘fraud’.
“I believe the mainstream media and Democrats are using this to create panic, destabilize the economy and destroy Trump’s chances of re-election.”
With those thoughts in mind, Mr Green threw a party on June 13th. The next day, he woke up feeling unwell. Two days later, his partner fell ill and his parents became ill. Then the mother-in-law came to town and the spread got worse.
“They brought (my partner’s) mother and one of my partner’s sisters,” he said. “My mother-in-law fell ill that night. Then my mother-in-law and their daughter got sick. They reduce their travel.
“Two days later, my mother-in-law became ill. The new mummy and dad are not feeling well. We all tested positive for COVID-19. Only the newborn was saved. ”
Mr Green and his mother-in-law were admitted to the hospital. Both his mother-in-law and his mother-in-law died. He is lucky to survive.
“The virus hit my central nervous system and the staff prevented me from having a stroke,” Mr Green said.
He’s healthy now, but can’t shake off the guilt from the party that started it all.
“You can’t imagine the guilt I feel, the crowd that caused so much suffering,” he said.
“Being a denier, inadvertently turning this epidemic, making fun of those who wear masks and social exclusion leads me to believe that my actions are safe for both of our families when it is not.
“For those who deny the existence of the virus or underestimate the severity of the virus; This is very real and very contagious. You sent it to your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors before you knew it was there. Husband, wife, children are separated.
“Sick care for the sick, self-isolation for those without symptoms. I know how to defame me with some of my pro, but trust me, you don’t like this virus.
“You do not want your loved ones to suffer and die from this because you are taking a political stand or defending the economy over what their next life will be. We are all in a general state of depression.”
In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday, Mr Green said he wanted to set an example for others.

“We need to be an example, I think, and bring awareness (about what happens in a small meeting),” he said.
Writing about his struggle, he said the virus was unbearable for him.
“Imagine the sound and vibrations of an antique electric heater all over your body. Imagine the wind blowing with every step you take,” Mr Green said.
“Rub hot ice all over your head to alleviate the painful headache. Imagine your eyes in a bowl of water. Imagine for a second you were transposed into the karmic driven world of Earl.
“If it’s too bad, it’s enough. A series of events (following it) with unimaginable details of a family’s tragic tragedy with COVID-19.”
“Americans need to understand that this is not going to happen without sacrifice,” he said.
“Either way, we’re going to pay a price. Doing nothing is nonsense. Ignoring or questioning the validity of this virus, its infection or the consequences of selfish attitudes at this stage is utter nonsense. I call myself out first.
“I was 50/50, but it’s not as personal as it is now. I fell on my sword. If we continue to worry about disrupting our lives more than stopping this virus, listen to me, not even an American will be saved.”
