“We want to thank the medical staff at Walter Reed National Medical Center for their caring treatment,” the Powell family wrote. “We have lost a remarkable and loving husband, father, grandfather and a great American.”
Powell had battled various other ailments, including Parkinson’s. His wife, Alma, also had a breakthrough case of COVID-19, but responded to treatment.
According to the media’s latest ever-evolving narrative, such “breakthrough infections” are actually a good thing because they can lead to “super immunity.”
Unfortunately for Powell, he died.
That said, his family can take heart knowing that his death “could have been worse” if he was not fully vaccinated.
