An Alameda County Sheriff's Office deputy is battling for his life in the hospital with a serious case of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Deputy Oscar Rocha remains in the intensive care unit. ACSO officials shared on social media a photograph of the deputy's hand holding another in the hospital bed over the weekend with a message of support for their colleague.
"This is the hand of one of our senior deputy sheriff’s in critical condition in ICU with COVID-19. He's fighting so hard to survive. If you believe in prayer or the power of love and positive energy please send it to him and his family. #covid19 #isreal," they wrote in the Instagram post.
