In the past couple of months the United States has become the epicenter of the coronavirus crisis worldwide with over 6 million confirmed cases and over 180,000 deaths. Among those to have lost their lives to the Covid-19 pandemic is former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain. He died of Covid-19 on 30 July at the age of 74 after being hospitalized for many weeks.

Cain’s tweet surprised many

Even though he passed away a montg ago, Cain's Twitter account is being used by a group of associates known as “The Cain Gang”. On Sunday the account tweeted a link to an article saying: “It looks like the coronavirus is not as deadly as the mainstream media first made it out to be.” Many reacted negatively to thw tweet, which was later deleted.

On Monday, "The Cain Gang" posted another tweet giving information about the "second wave of the virus" and how it hasn't come close to the first wave that hit the US back in March, adding "and it isn't showing signs that it will."

The US Centers for Disease Control has been consistent in warning people with underlying health conditions like respiratory issues and diabetes are at high risk of dying from Covid-19. That is why health experts continue to recommend people follow health guidelines such as social distancing and wearing a mask.
