This is tragic news.
Jacqueline Towns, the mother of Timberwolves All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns, has died due to complications of COVID-19, the team announced Monday.
Ms. Jackie was an angel and we were blessed to have her in our lives. I cannot imagine the heartbreak that @KarlTowns and Karl Sr. are going through right now but my hope is we can lift them up during this time and get them through this with our thoughts and prayers.— John Calipari (@UKCoachCalipari) April 13, 2020
She had been in a medically-induced coma due to the disease for at least a week. KAT talked about in an emotional Instagram post last week.
There have been more than 22,000 deaths and 550,000 confirmed cases nationwide of COVID-19, although reputable infectious disease experts think those numbers are on the low side.
Our thoughts go out to the Towns and Timberwolves families.
