Herman Cain, US ex-presidential candidate, dies after contracting Covid”

"Herman Cain- our oga, our friend, father to so many of us - don die", na di message wey dem post for im official website tok. People who make things happen, people who watch things happen, and people who say, what in the heck happened", Cain wrote in "This is Herman Cain!

"Masks will not be mandatory for the event, which will be attended by President Trump", he tweeted. Trump campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh told CNN at the time that Cain did not meet with Trump at the Tulsa rally.

Ellen Carmichael, a former member of Cain's staff, tweeted Thursday, "I'm very saddened to learn of the passing of my former boss, Herman Cain".

Mr Cain, who in 2006 survived late-stage colon cancer, is one of the best-known USA victims of Covid-19.

Whether he contracted the disease at the Tulsa rally or not can not be known, but hopefully, some will take this as a cautionary tale.

Cain, Cabrese wrote, "was basically pretty healthy in recent years, [but] he was still in a high-risk group" because of his history with cancer, as well as his age.

Cain had been ill with the virus for several weeks.

At the time, Cain's team said he did not require a respirator and that he was resting comfortably at the hospital in the Atlanta area.

Cain briefly pulled ahead of eventual Republican nominee Mitt Romney in political surveys a year ahead of the election, but he withdrew from the race in December 2011, after two women accused him of sexual harassment while he was chief executive of the National Restaurant Association from 1996 to 1999.

Six other Trump campaign workers also tested positive while in Tulsa.

Cain was the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza and a cancer survivor.

Cain, grew up in Atlanta, entered the Navy after graduating from historically Black Morehouse college in 1967.

Cain's colorful, long-shot presidential candidacy in 2012 drew the most coverage of all Republican primary candidates.

Cain is survived by his wife, Gloria Etchison, whom he married in 1968, and two children.
