Herman Cain dies of COVID-19 at 74 Years Old
“You’re never ready for the kind of news we are grappling with this morning,” Dan Calabrese, the editor for Cain’s website, wrote Thursday in a statement. “Herman Cain – our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us – has passed away.”
Cain, a former Presidential candidate, passed away in an Atlanta-area hospital. He’d been severely ill for weeks prior to his passing.
Cain was admitted to the hospital on July 1.
“We knew when he was first hospitalized with COVID-19 that this was going to be a rough fight,” Calabrese wrote Thursday. “He had trouble breathing and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. We all prayed that the initial meds they gave him would get his breathing back to normal, but it became clear pretty quickly that he was in for a battle.”
Calabrese felt that optimism was high over Cain’s recovery as little as 5-days prior, but hopeful expectations failed to play out. Cain previously beat liver cancer, placing him in a high-risk category for any illness’ consequences.
Cain is survived by his wife, two children and several grandchildren, according to WSB-TV.
