George Floyd Tested Positive For COVID-19 - Autopsy Shows by Freebrowsing12(m): 10:13am On Jun 04, 2020


George Floyd tested positive for COVID-19, autopsy shows
The virus had no known role in his death, and he was unlikely still contagious.


George Floyd, whose death in Minnesota police custody has stirred widespread anger across the United States and abroad, tested positive for the novel coronavirus, according to a full-length autopsy report released by Wednesday night.

A postmortem nasal swab collected on May 26 was found to be "positive for 2019-nCoV RNA," the report said, using another term for the type of coronavirus that causes COVID-19 and is responsible for the global pandemic.

Floyd was known to be positive for the virus on April 3, and the type of viral testing performed for the autopsy, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), can show a positive result "for weeks after the onset and resolution of clinical disease," according to Hennepin County Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Andrew Baker, who conducted the autopsy.

"The autopsy result most likely reflects asymptomatic but persistent PCR positivity from previous infection," Baker said in the 20-page report. In other words, Floyd was unlikely to have been contagious at the time of his death, in which the virus had no known role.

Earlier this week, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office released preliminary findings in a one-page "press release report," which did not include the coronavirus test. The cause of death -- "cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual restraint and neck compression" -- remains the same.

However, early findings from an independent autopsy ordered by Floyd's family show his death was a "homicide caused by asphyxia due to neck and back compression that led to a lack of blood flow to the brain."

Ok

Autopsy result from the State is different from the one from the family hired medical examiner. Go figure, someone is lying.

I'm sure that this cannot happen in a "SANE COUNTRY ". grin grin grin grin

You people should stop following the white racists and calling this thing a scamdemic

The thing is, most people with covid will recover without falling ill. A tiny minority will fall seriously sick.

It is the fact that the tiny minority that falls sick would overwhelm our healthcare facilites, if left unchecked, that is why we have lockdowns and the like.

Stop calling this a scamdemic. This is not the first time a severe viral infection has decimated mankind. It most certainly won't be the last.

MODIFIED

The truth is, the world's governments could lift all restrictions, and allow freedom of movement, and millions more will be infected, and most will be asymptomatic or have mild symptoms.

It is the fact that the minority of those who fall severely ill...would overwhelm facilites.

Experimental models done in the US predict that over a million US citizens would be seriously ill...out of 10 milllion if no lockdowns. The US has 950000 hospital beds. If the seriously ill overwhelm the hospital beds....people with easily preventable diseases won't be able toa ccess care, and could die.

That's why we have lockdowns.

The USA is a very deceptive and perfidious country. Before you know it they will end up saying it was covid 19 that killed him and not asphixiation.

America is a very smart and terrible country. Reason why they are inflating and exagerrating Corona virus mortality rate so that they can score points on China. If you believe in the number of Corona virus deaths they're telling you, you're in a long thing. No be only them waka come.

Another angle to it all......

But it is good to admit that the virus wasn't what snuffed the life out of him and that his death came from the hands knees of the evil cop.
Because, early findings from an independent autopsy ordered by Floyd's family show his death was a "homicide caused by asphyxia due to neck and back compression that led to a lack of blood flow to the brain"

JUSTICE MUST BE SERVED HOT.
