What exactly is a Covid-related illness? Did this teen die of Covid or not?This story is yet another example of stories meant to promote fear of Covid this country has endured for the past nine months. There's a difference between dying "of" or ""with" Covid. That's why the Covid death count has been grossly overstated to grab more headlines.
NY Post reports a 16-year-old Wisconsin high school student abruptly died over Thanksgiving break of a coronavirus-related illness, his family and school officials announced.
Isai Morocho, a junior at East High School in Madison, died with “COVID-19 pneumonia,” the student’s father, Milton Morocho told Spanish-language news outlet Miwisconsin.com.
The father told the local outlet that the determination was made from a toxicology test after their son’s sudden death.
“This is a tremendous loss to everyone in our community,” said East High School Principal Brendan Kearney, who notified students and families of Isai’s death. “Our hearts go out to his family in this time of unimaginable grief.”
