George Floyd Tested Positive for Coronavirus, Autopsy Reveals

George Floyd‘s autopsy has revealed that he had tested positive for Coronavirus.

The autopsy text reads (via TMZ), “positivity for 2019-nCoV can persist for weeks after the onset and resolution of clinical disease, the autopsy result most likely reflects asymptomatic but persistent PCR positivity from previous infection.” Meaning, George likely did not have symptoms, but the virus was still in his body after testing positive back in April.

George was killed by a white police officer, who has been charged with second degree murder. In addition, the three other officers who were present at the murder were also charged.

George had two autopsies after the first, done by the county, concluded he died of a heart attack. The second, independent autopsy concluded that it was “death from asphyxia.”
