But, because of the riots, health experts now fear another spike in the number of coronavirus cases in the US.

According to a report from Daily Mail, the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office revealed findings on Wednesday that states Floyd was positive for COVID-19 on April 3.

But, the report emphasized that the positive result was likely due to an old infection. Moreover, Floyd was said to be asymptomatic during his death

The decedent was known to be positive for 2019-nCoV RNA on 4/3/2020. Since PCR positivity for 2019-nCoV RNA can persist for weeks after the onset and resolution of clinical disease, the autopsy result most likely reflects asymptomatic but persistent PCR positivity from the previous infection

Still, even if found positive for COVID-19, the report didn’t suggest that the virus had any correlation with his death.

“Cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression” was the cause of his death. Meanwhile, the result from the one his family has commissioned indicated “asphyxiation from sustained pressure was the cause” of Floyd’s death.
