George Floyd’s Autopsy Allegedly Reveals He Tested Positive for COVID-19

George Floyd's Autopsy Allegedly Reveals he Tested Positive for COVID-19

George Floyd’s autopsy is the latest controversy in his case. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office and Chief Medical Examiner Andrew Baker tried to allege that Floyd’s pre-existing health conditions are the reason he died.

Although Officer Derek Chauvin had his knee on Floyd’s neck for about nine minutes and the victim repeatedly informed him that he couldn’t breathe, Minnesota medical examiners allegedly found fentanyl and methamphetamine in his body. Now they’re saying he tested positive for COVID-19 on April 3rd.

Every other irrelevant reason is mentioned as a cause of death other than asphyxia, like Floyd’s family’s independent autopsy stated.

Dr. Michael Baden said in a press conference that George Floyd died of “asphyxiation due to neck and back compression.” Baden’s findings upgraded Chauvin’s charges from third degree to second degree.

This is a big step in the right direction but the fight isn’t over. The other three officers involved have all been arrested and charged. Let’s see what happens next.

Flo Rida Launches Mobile COVID-19 Testing Site in Florida

According to a news report from TMZ, Sunshine State rapper Flo Rida has teamed up with his personal doctor to launch mobile testing sites at companies seeking to reopen following the more than a month-long lockdown due to the Coronavirus.

Flo, along with his doctor and now business partner Dr. George Tabi, launched a $1.5 million healthcare venture together called the Asktabs Mobile Wellness Center, which can test up to 1,500 people a day with a minimal staff of up to 14 people.

Last week, 30 employees from Miami’s The Metro Wrapz were the first to get tested by Asktabs. The testing site is primarily for businesses looking to safely reopen, but individuals can get tested as well.

Flo Rida and Dr. Tabi are looking to send Asktabs mobile sites around Florida throughout the summer and the rest of 2020.

Robert De Niro Says He Wants to Play Gov Andrew Cuomo in Coronavirus Movie

Just in case there’s a movie about the Coronavirus, Robert De Niro is putting in his bid to portray Andrew Cuomo.

The actor made an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and expressed his admiration for the New York Governor, and said he wanted to play him in a hypothetical film about the global crisis.

“I guess I’ll play Cuomo,” De Niro suggested. “He’s doing what a President should do.” He said Cuomo’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic displays his Presidential characteristics.

“Oh, boy, that’d be a treat,” Cuomo said the next day on The Late Show about the whole idea. “I’m a big De Niro fan. He’s a genius.”

“He is just phenomenal. The breadth of his ability, I mean, just look at all the roles he’s played,” Cuomo said. “He can do anything, right?’ Deer Hunter,’ ‘Cape Fear,’ he can do comedy… how ’bout ‘Taxi Driver’?”

De Niro also called Donald Trump “the idiot” and co-signed Joe Biden. “We, of course, could have survived this [pandemic] much better if the idiot had done the right thing, listened and heeded all the warnings,” De Niro said. “There were many, many warnings, and we are all paying for it now. It would have been bad in some ways, but never like this.”

Donald Trump’s Personal Valet Tested Positive for Coronavirus

Donald Trump is probably punching the air right now after his personal valet tested positive for the coronavirus. Unfortunately, the President himself tested negative but officials say that doesn’t mean he’s virus-free. If his results do come positive, he may have exposed many people to the deadly respiratory virus.

The driver was a member of the Navy and dedicated his time to working in the White House. He began exhibiting symptoms on Wednesday and his test results came back positive. Trump wasn’t happy about it and CNN reports the diagnosis is “hitting the fan” in the administration.

Trump and Mike Pence “have since tested negative for the virus and they remain in great health.” However, it’s possible to transmit the virus if an infected person tests negative.

As previously reported, Donald Trump visited Arizona on Tuesday to tour the Honeywell mask factory and wasn’t wearing a mask.

Mask Off: Donald Trump Declines Mask for Protection Against COVID-19 During Mask Factory Tour

Donald Trump took a tour of the manufacturing plant that has been tasked with making N95 masks for the government on Tuesday morning, and he wasn’t even wearing a mask.

There were multiple signs up inside of the Phoenix-based Honeywell, but the leader of the free world and other government officials chose to wear protective goggles.

Shortly before he left Washington D.C. to go to Phoenix, Trump was asked if he’d wear a mask during his visit but he said it “doesn’t sound right” if he has to make public speeches. “If it’s a masked facility, I will. I don’t know if it’s a masked facility … I haven’t decided because I don’t know … If it’s a mask environment, I would certainly do that,” Trump said. “I’ll know when I get there. But I would wear it. If it’s a mask environment, I would have no problem.”

Donald Trump added, “I’m supposed to make a speech. You’ll tell me: Should I leave the mask on when I’m speaking?” he said. “I don’t know. I just — it doesn’t sound right. But if it’s a mask environment, I would certainly wear a mask.”

The Associated Press reported almost all Honeywell factory workers and members of the press were seen wearing protective face coverings. Some White House staff and Secret Service agents wore masks, but Senior White House stagg and Honeywell executives opted not to.

An official for the White House claims the Prez wasn’t required to wear a mask but was advised to take precaution.

Vice President Mike Pence got backlash last week for being spotted at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, without a mask. Pence claims he didn’t know the masks were a requirement and insisted that he gets tested regularly for COVID-19 although people in low-income communities don’t have access to testing.

“As Vice President of the United States, I’m tested for the coronavirus on a regular basis, and everyone who is around me is tested for the coronavirus,” Pence said after the controversy. “I thought it would be a good opportunity for me to be here, to be able to speak to these researchers, these incredible health care personnel, and look them in the eye and say thank you.”

Judge Denies Big Meech’s Request for Early Release

While his brother and co-founder of the infamous Black Mafia Family Southwest T was granted an early release yesterday, Big Meech will still be sitting in federal prison, despite the concerns of the spread of Coronavirus in correctional facilities.

According to the DetroitNews.com,  U.S. District Judge David Lawson denied the request by Demetrius “Big Meech” Flenory for early release, saying that Meech’s request was “premature” because the feds have yet to respond to his request.

Feds argue that Meech should not be afforded the same luxury as his little brother Terry Flenory because of his disciplinary record while in prison, being written up for possession of a cell phone and possession of a weapon.

The 51-year-old former drug kingpin argues that he’s more susceptible to falling victim to COVID-19 due to his age and health conditions, which include hypertension and heart trouble.

Taraji P. Henson Teams Up With Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation to Raise Awareness for Mental Health Needs During COVID-19 Pandemic

Taraji P. Henson is a known advocate for mental health. Her foundation, The Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation (BLHF), partnered with the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation to provide mental health support to first responders and essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic. TASF was founded by the late rapper’s mother, Afeni Shakur.

The organizations launched the Matching Gift campaign to provide free access to mental health therapy. Patients will be directly linked with trained therapists to help them cope with this stressful, unprecedented time as a result of COVID-19.

TASF raised $25,000 and will match and donate it to BLHF to financially support the campaign.

The organizations factored in the cost of therapy, which can sometimes be a burden for the Black community. So BLHF launched the COVID-19 Free Virtual Therapy Support Campaign to raise funds to provide mental health services in low-income networks.

No one should suffer in silence,” said Henson. “Our vision is to change the perception of mental health in the black community. Together, we will make a difference. This is our legacy.”

“It is my belief that in order to honor our ancestors and ourselves, we must look inwards; identify and interrogate the root causes of our traumas. What we as an organization wish to offer are observable steps to reach these goals and we are happy to partner with the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation to make a difference within the mental health community. I believe we are worth the effort,” said Sekyiwa “Set” Shakur, the head of TASF.

CNN Reporter Chris Cuomo Recovers From Coronavirus

There’s one less thing for the Cuomo family to be worried about. In the midst of all going on some good news is better than none especially when it hits close to home. Chris Cuomo announced he has officially tested negative for coronavirus and has “both antibodies” a month after testing positive for the virus.

The CNN anchor, who has been transparent about his encounter with the virus since publicizing his diagnosis, broke the news Monday night on “Cuomo Prime Time” in a segment with Dr. Sanjay Gupta defining what it may mean to test positive for coronavirus antibodies.”Is this good news or not? I thought I was going to have this big, great news after all the bad news I’ve given you about me and my family,” Cuomo thought out loud. “I tested negative. I have both antibodies: The short-term one and the long-term one. So I’m lucky, right?”. Cuomo was not clear about when he tested negative, but he did say that he “cleared the CDC threshold a while ago” and got his test back “weeks later.”

On April 20, he shared an undated video of his “official re-entry” to the main floor of his home after staying isolated in his basement.”Presumably, you’re going to have some protection against this,” Gupta shared with him. “I think that’s what most virologists will say, that’s what your friend, Dr. Anthony Fauci says as well. The thing is we need to prove it and that takes some time to show that these antibodies are truly going to protect you.” Here’s what I know,” Cuomo said ending the chat. “If they want my blood, and I’m being told they do next week, I have never given blood in my life and we both know why: It’s because I’m a wuss. But I am going to do it, although the likelihood I faint is like, 110%. But I’m going to do it, I’m going to shoot it. If they want the blood, I’m going to give it to them because that is the best thing I’ve heard of so far in terms of what I can do to help as someone who was sick.”. Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to all essential workers as well as those being affected by COVID-19
