Recently, Megyn Kelly’s son received the news of his teacher’s death due to coronavirus
In an interview, Megyn Kelly shared the experience of breaking the news of her son’s teacher dying to him. After contracting the virus, Megyn Kelly’s son’s music teacher seemed to be on the road to recovery. However, they got sad news in the middle of a joyous moment. While talking about it, she said:
“I’m in the middle of this joyful moment with Yates and [Doug] shows me the [news] and it’s like, ‘Oh my God, what am I going to do? Am I going to ruin this moment? But he’s got to know. We have to tell them because all the boys are Zooming and they’re all on this group text where they text every 2 minutes. There’s no keeping it from him.’ ”
Our son Yates’s music teacher died yesterday of COVID-19. Don Sorel made Yates look forward to going to school, made him love music; all of the kids adored him. Telling Yates was awful. Pain for us is one thing; pain for one’s child is in a different league. RIP, Mr. Sorel.

Furthermore, she said:
“I said, ‘I have something to tell you about Mr. Sorel.’ And I think maybe [Yates] was wondering if it was more good news because the last update had been good. And then we said, ‘It’s bad news.’ And he just looked confused. And we were confused too. I couldn’t get it out without crying, and then he cried. We held each other.”
God bless our teachers! https://t.co/uLIrFWwsp8
