A new autopsy report has revealed that George Floyd, a black American murdered by police in Minneapolis, had tested positive for Covid-19 back in April 2020.
The Autopsy conducted by Hennepin Country noted that George Floyd died of cardiopulmonary arrest complicated by “law enforcement subdual, restraint and neck compression” – and that he was positive for Covid-19 on April, 3,2020.
Here is the statement as revealed by The Sun;
“The decedent was known to be positive for 2019-nCoV RNA on 4/3/2020,” the report stated.
“Since PCR positivity for 2019-nCoV RNA can persist for weeks after the onset and resolution of clinical disease, the autopsy result most likely reflects asymptomatic but persistent PCR positivity from the previous infection.”
George Floyd was murdered by police for a petty crime. He was accused of trying to buy cigarettes from a store using counterfeit money. The store operator has never given enough proof that the offender was Floyd himself.
The police were called and they arrested him while he was sitting inside a black car which was parked near the store.
Later after the arrest, sources including a video clip taken by a Minneapolis resident, a white policeman killed George Floyd after he placed his knee on Floyd’s neck for minutes. Floyd’s hands were cuffed on his back, while the police pinned him facing the ground.
Floyd could not even move at the time and all he could do was plead with the ruthless officer, but the officer kept on pinning him until he went silent.
George Floyd was later pronounced dead and this act of police brutality was not taken lightly by Americans and other countries who joined forces and condemned the act.
Thousands of Americans flocked the streets since Floyd’s murder seeking justice for the deceased and protesting against police brutality and racism in the country.
The Americans have engaged the police in the protests which have been going on for seven days. All these have been happening despite the curfew rules put in place by the Government to curb the spread of Covid-19 in the country.
Sources have revealed that only Derek Chauvin the police who placed his knee on George Floyd was arrested while the others who were watching or “aided” the murder were just relieved of their duties.
