George Floyd tested positive for coronavirus in April: autopsy

George Floyd had tested positive for the coronavirus in April, but was not a factor in his death, full autopsy He explained.

According to Dr. Andrew Baker, chief medical examiner of Hennepin County, Floyd was no longer symptomatic when four Minneapolis police officers killed him during his arrest on Monday.

“Because positivity for… [COVID-19] It may take weeks after the onset and resolution of the clinical disease, the autopsy result is probably asymptomatic but permanent… reflects positivity from the previous infection. Baker wrote in a report released Wednesday with the permission of the Floyd family.

The 20-page full report argues that Floyd’s death was a murder – officer Derek Chauvin died when his heart stopped while squeezing his neck in a widely watched video of his arrest.

Although Floyd’s family performed an independent autopsy that was released this week and made a different decision – Floyd’s murder caused asphyxia caused by both neck and back compression, as the weightlifter Thomas Lane pressed on his stomach.

Chauvin, Lane and two officers who helped arrest J Alexander Kueng and Tou Thao were fired and charged with crimes.

The findings of the medical examination’s office included Floyd’s “other important conditions”: heart disease, fentanyl poisoning, and the last methamphetamine – details that angered Floyd’s family attorney Benjamin Crump in the first report.

Crump said on Tuesday that the inclusion of these conditions, which did not affect his death at both autopsies, attempted to assassinate Floyd’s character before the officers’ hearings.

Along with the positive COVID-19 test, Floyd’s detailed autopsy experienced blunt force injuries to his face, shoulders, hands, arms, and legs; bruises on the wrists from the cuffs; and a broken rib during cardiopulmonary resuscitation.
