A Cal State University Northridge student is still in China on Thursday night, near the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak — his semester studying abroad turning into a health care nightmare, CBS Los Angeles reported.
"I never cry," Nancy Krank, the student's mother, said while talking about her son, Samson Adame.
The 24-year-old student has been stuck in the Shandong Province of China since the coronavirus epidemic broke out nearly a month ago. Photos he took and shared with his mom showed empty, shut down streets. She said he only leaves the home he's in to get food and water — with a mask on.
"As a mom, you want to help," Krank told CBS LA. "You want to fix things, and this is something there's no way I can fix."
