America has found herself right smack dab in the middle of the “second wave” of coronavirus as of late, with the illness making a predicted rebound as cities and states begin to reopen their economies.
Where New York City was once the epicenter of the deadly COVID-19 pandemic, we now have Florida, California, and Texas – all heavily populated states in their own right, with Florida and Texas having been early adopters of the economic restart.
The pandemic isn’t going anywhere anytime soon, that’s for sure, and we are sure to lose several more prominent Americans as this crisis plays out. This week, we say goodbye to Herman Cain: A legendary business mogul, radio host, and former Republican presidential candidate.
Herman Cain, the former Republican presidential candidate and affable business magnate, died Thursday after being hospitalized for coronavirus.
Cain, 74, first went to an Atlanta hospital for treatment on July 1, his staff had said.
His death was announced on Herman Cain’s website and Facebook page.
“Herman Cain – our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us – has passed away,” the statement on his website said, noting there were “hopeful indicators” in recent days that he’d recover but adding: “And yet we also felt real concern about the fact that he never quite seemed to get to the point where the doctors could advance him to the recovery phase.”
Cain was considered an “at risk” individual after beating the odds to survive colon cancer back in 2006.
