Opinion: My brother didn’t get Covid-19, but he was a victim of it anyway

As a sibling to someone who overdosed at the start of the Covid-19 crisis, I’m reminded every day that our national conversation ignores the uncounted victims of the pandemic. Victims like my brother, David, who passed away on March 24 in Orange County, California. While his death certificate states “acute polydrug intoxication due to the combined effects of heroin [and other drugs]” as his cause of death, my brother is another tragedy of this moment.
