Update: George Floyd real cause of death revealed



Onyxnews Nigeria reports that George Floyd‘s real cause of death has been revealed.

The African-American man, who was killed by the police in Minneapolis, US, had COVID-19 before his death.

According to an autopsy that was carried out by Hennepin County Medical Examiner, it revealed that George Floyd had coronavirus but the virus did not contribute to his death.


The testing for the disease was carried out via a nasal swab.

The autopsy released revealed: “Viral testing (Minnesota Department of Health, postmortem nasal swab collected 5/26/2020): positive for 2019-nCoV RNA by PCR.”

Floyd was said to have tested positive for the coronavirus on April 3 and was asymptomatic when he died in police custody.


The autopsy confirmed the cause of his death was a forceful restraint on the neck, which was done by a Minneapolis police officer.

His death on May 25 has sparkled protest across the US and in other countries, calling for justice and an end to racism.

Protests turned violent in some parts of the country, forcing President Donald Trump to deploy force in quelling the crisis.


The officer who knelt on his neck has been charged with second-degree murder while the three others who were involved in the incident face counts of aiding and abetting killing.
