Israel Carreras Miami Winter Party
Israel and his boyfriend, Franco Conquista, attended the Winter Party Festival (between 4th and 10th March) along the shores of Nikki Beach, South Beach. The festival is an annual, week-long celebration of music, dance, and community. It aims to raise critical funds for the LGBTQ community. Thousands of people attend each year, and 2020 was no different, as you can see.
“Israel was just a lovable man,” Conquista said.
After attending the Winter Party Music Festival earlier this month, Conquista says Carrera came down with a horrible cough and couldn’t breathe.
“It started with fever, and then very quickly he was having problems with breathing,” Conquista said.
The symptoms got so bad that Carrera had to go to the hospital.
“He could not breathe, and then they put tubes in his nose and his mouth,” Conquista said. “He couldn’t even get the tubes out to eat. Because he couldn’t breathe.”
A lot of people packed the beaches and were pretty much crammed in like sardines. Nobody was practicing social distancing at that point, and the danger of coronavirus spreading as fast as it ultimately did hadn’t quite registered like it did the week after WPF ended.
At least 9 other people who attended Winter Party Festival have reportedly contracted COVID-19 as well.
Israel Carreras Covid-19
Israel Carreras was identified as the first death in Miami-Dade, Friday. Later that evening, a 79-year-old man was reported as the county’s second death.
Carreras succumbed to the virus after his friends said he contracted it during the Winter Party festival in Miami, where several other cases of the virus had appeared.
Franco Conquista, the victim’s partner, said at first, he isolated at home but got progressively more sick. Eventually, he was taken to the hospital, where he would later succumb to the virus.
“He started to feel sick after the event,” Conquista said. “We went together. I went to his place, taking care of him for two days, and I also had it. He couldn’t breathe, so he wanted to go to the hospital, and then, he was at the hospital for four or five days. Then, they put him to sleep because he was really agitated, and then, he never woke up again.”

According to family members, Carreras lived in Miami and was well-known in the area. The 40-year-old Cuban native had lived in South Florida for several years.
Friends described him as a hard worker who worked about 14 hours per day at a warehouse and as an Uber driver, so he could save money to send to his family in Cuba every month.
“Israel was a very hard-working man,” Conquista said. “He was full of energy, and he was working 13, 14 hours a day, so he could provide for himself and provide for his family back in Cuba.”
