Slai Hung plays a critical role in the Garden City ecosystem, especially during a pandemic. He delivers pizza.

But he had to stop for a few weeks, because he came down with the coronavirus. He describes for the Kansas News Service an interaction with a doctor that was like no other he's had since arriving in the United States 10 years ago from Myanmar.

Hung has gotten clear of the virus, but not some of the lingering effects on his body and his social life.
