    Where's the fun in that?

    Heart attack after a "procedure".  

    But Covid.

    He had to have the procedure due to the Covid he caught. He had no previous heart issues.

    Ghali previously said Letlow was being treated with the antiviral drug Remdesivir and steroids. Asked if Letlow had any underlying conditions that would have made his death more likely, Ghali said in a text message, "none. All COVID related."

    I am a fisherman, came here to share my knowledge.

    But I see this thread, and have to share a personal experience.

    10-12 days ago.....

    I had a neighbor for 6 years, he was 75-80, thin, in perfect health.

    He could be difficult, but we were cordial.

    His son, bank president, his daughters, school principal and teacher, respectively.

    I go fishing for a few days in DR, come back, my wife says the neighbor died of the virus!

    Day I come back, new car, new appliances, new everything for the widow.

    I truly wonder how many "virus deaths" were insurance related.

    New appliances?  So you've been inside the house already???   Cleaning her pipes?

    She killed her husband to get new appliances and blamed it on Covid,

    Exactly.

    Old men do not die 'unexpectedly' ... just like an old car they can stop running at any moment ... even a muscle car.

    Don't tell TRT or he'll be on that like the stink on his toenails.

    Don't think she would get a settlement that quick. He more than likely had a pile of money and refused to part with it. After he parted the wife decided he couldn't take it with him, so she wasn't going to chance it and got what she wanted.

    LOL... you guys believe anything to validate your ignorance. No real proof he was healthy or had no heart conditions, just heresay, yet you claim that as the gospel but if it was the other way around you would demand proof with peer reviewed data..  You and everyone else are going to look pretty silly when the total death numbers come in and there is only about a 50k bump in deaths over previous years, which really isnt a bad number considering the population is increasing year over year too.

    The medical community should be thankful for COVID. It sure is making the death diagnosis easier than the past

    How is it you know so much about his toenails?

    This is only slightly more interesting then the 41 y.o. guy from La. who died because of a weak immune system.
    RIP Luke

    Not saying he had no underlying, but just because an MD said it is so doesn't make it 100 percent.  I see mistakes all the time including cancer, MS, fractures etc.......Or there may be some people out there who are genetically predisposed to this happening.  Maybe a larger viral load due to a more aloof attitude towards it that made this possible.  Who knows why this happens.  Maybe they will figure it out

    Dead from a "heart attack" on day 6 in the ICU :(
    .106% chance of dying from covid, and .0007% chance of dying from a heart attack at his age.  Poor family.
    I wonder what "procedure" they were attempting?

    Currently the excess deaths over previous years is around 300,000 more than previous years, six times your claim of 50,000.
