At 74 years old, Herman Cain has died of the deadly Coronavirus pandemic, according to the obituary, which was posted on his official Twitter handle. He caught the virus earlier this month and has been on oxygen until his demise.
His death has raised many concerns again about the novel virus, which Herman Cain has been discrediting the validity of the virus. He became a victim of his disbelief.

Herman was obviously in the high-risk demographic as a septuagenarian and a cancer survivor who already has a compromised immune system.
It is somewhat baffling or even worrisome that he was making jokes and statements in an attempt to invalidate the seriousness of the pandemic. In fact, at the last Trump’s rally in Tusla, he was seen maskless and unbothered.

Many have gone on Twitter to mourn the death of Herman Cain. Many blamed him for not following safety measures to protect himself against COVID-19.
Some Twitter users have also called out President Trump for spearheading the indifferent attitude of some individuals wearing masks, just like Herman.
Maybe if you had shown compassionate and intelligent leadership and advocated for wearing masks Herman Cain would be alive today. He would have followed your lead and you know that. pic.twitter.com/vs6aIUVXMA

This is a bad example. Black people have been reported to have died more than other races. It is only wise that the safety measures outlined by medical personnel are followed. Unnecessary throwing away of caution is not only risky but stupid!
