Triple-vaccinated 70-year-old dies from breakthrough COVID-19 during the Omicron wave
Previously healthy and fit (bicycling, scuba diving) 70-year-old man became ill with COVID-19 in December 2021. He was fully vaccinated and boosted.
When his breathing became labored, he was admitted to the emergency room at George Washington University Hospital. His treatment included a monoclonal antibody.
But despite his robust good health and fitness level, he never left the hospital. He died after spending a month in the hospital.
One of his last acts of generosity occurred as he was dying. Some of his blood was drawn for COVID-19 research that will hopefully save lives.
