Herman Cain, former Republican presidential candidate, dies after battling coronavirus

Trump campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh told CNN at the time that Cain did not meet with Trump at the Tulsa rally. For 7 July, one post from im Twitter account say "doctors dey try to make sure im oxygen levels dey right".

"Herman Cain led a remarkable life and will be missed".

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

"Herman Cain - our boss, our friend, like a father to so many of us - has passed away", wrote Dan Calabrese on Cain's website Thursday.

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. "I'm concerned about our ability to protect anyone who attends a large, indoor event, and I'm also concerned about our ability to ensure the president stays safe, as well".

Ellen Carmichael, a GOP strategist who worked for Cain, said on Twitter that she was saddened by the news and bracing for "the cruelty online" from opponents of Cain's conservative politics after the business executive's 2012 presidential run.

US deal for 100 million doses of vaccine
The companies said the doses would be manufactured in European countries including France, Belgium, Germany and Italy. ACT partners include leaders of governments, global health organizations, businesses and philanthropies.

Mr Cain, 74, who ran in the 2012 Republican presidential primary won by Mitt Romney, had been ill with the virus for several weeks.

Mr Cain said he returned the franchise to profitability.

Mr Cain served as a director of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City from 1992 to 1996.

Cain briefly vaulted to the top of the pack of Republican presidential contenders in 2011 on the strength of his catchy 9-9-9 tax plan, which advocated replacing taxes with a 9% personal income tax, 9% federal sales tax, and a 9% corporate tax. Politico in October 2011 also reported that Cain had been accused by two women of sexual misconduct while at the NRA in the late 1990s. He graduated from the historically Black Morehouse College in 1967 with a degree in mathematics, and from Purdue University in IN in 1971 with a master's in computer science.

Cain was reportedly planning a new television series on Newsmax in the weeks before his death.

Cain's survivors include his wife, Gloria Etchison, and two children, Melanie and Vincent.
