Finally, after all of these months, a public person under the age of 70 died “of the coronavirus.”
However, this story is open, aggressive fake news. And it’s going to be very powerful in convincing the goyim to believe in this lunatic hoax.
Luke Letlow, the newly elected member of Congress from Louisiana, died Tuesday night from complications related to COVID-19, a spokesman announced.
The Associated Press reported earlier this month that Letlow, a 41-year-old Republican, had been hospitalized after being diagnosed with the virus. He was days away from being sworn into office.
Dr. G.E. Ghali, of LSU Health Shreveport, told NOLA.com that Letlow was in critical condition but showed signs of improvement. He “apparently suffered a cardiac event this evening that was refractory to all resuscitation efforts.”
This man died of a heart attack while suffering from the flu.
That is sad, and it is rare for men in this age group, but it does happen.
The flu seriously raises the threat of serious heart complications.
This does not mean that coronavirus is a “uniquely deadly disease,” anymore than any other flu is a uniquely deadly disease.
The media isn’t reporting it – obviously – but I can pretty much guarantee you that this man had a chronic heart condition. He was also overweight.
This is from the Centers for Disease Control:
Among adults hospitalized with flu during recent flu seasons, heart disease was one of the most commonly-occurring chronic conditions—about half of adults hospitalized with flu that season had heart disease. Studies have shown that flu illness is associated with an increase of heart attacks and stroke. A 2018 studyexternal icon found that the risk of heart attack was 6 times higher within a week of confirmed flu infection. These findings were most pronounced for older adults and those experiencing their first heart attack. Additionally, a 2020 studyexternal icon that looked at more than 80,000 U.S. adults hospitalized with flu over eight flu seasons (2010-11 through 2017-18) found that sudden, serious heart complications were common and occurred in one out of every eight patients (~12% of patients).
Here are some scientific articles about the flu and heart problems:
- Seasonal Influenza Infections and Cardiovascular Disease Mortality
- Influenza and Cardiovascular Disease
- Flu Virus Can Trigger A Heart Attack
- Cardiac complications of influenza infection in 3 adults
- Influenza A infection and severe cardiac dysfunction in adults: A case series
- The hidden burden of influenza: A review of the extra‐pulmonary complications of influenza infection
- Influenza‐like illness as a trigger for ischemic stroke
You get the idea. You can go do some searches yourself – there are literally hundreds of peer-reviewed studies on the relationship between the normal flu and severe heart problems, and it is an accepted fact that this can affect younger people that would normally be dealing with heart problems.
Understand what I’m telling you: this man could just as easily have gotten the regular flu and died of a heart attack in this same way. There is nothing unique to the coronavirus about what happened here.
The politicians and the media are all playing this up, in the extreme. That is something we’re just going to have to deal with. This lends a lot of credibility to their hoax, given that it just so happens that one of only a few dozen people under 60 who have died and had it blamed on this disease is a famous person.
But this changes nothing. This virus is not a uniquely deadly disease. It is the flu, and it is doing what the flu has always done. The absolute evidence for that is already available: Johns Hopkins has done a study showing that there is no increase in total deaths in America as a result of this virus.
This man would have had a heart attack regardless. It’s sad, but that’s life. People die.
