No, Larry King Did NOT Die From COVID-19
As much as we admire the effectiveness of the message in reminding people to wear a face mask to protect themselves against COVID-19, Larry King did not die from COVID-19.
Here are the facts about what Larry King went through in life, and his death.
Fact #1 : Larry King Had Lung + Prostate Cancers
In 1999, Larry King was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and was successfully treated for it.
Then in 2017, he had surgery to remove a lump in his lung, that turned out to be malignant.
Fact #2 : Larry King Had One Known Heart Attack
Larry King had a heart attack in 1987, which led to a quintuple heart-bypass surgery.
This was followed by an angioplasty in 1997 for a clogged heart vessel. Ten years later, he had angioplasty and stents inserted.
Fact #3 : Larry King Survived A Stroke
In March 2019, he suffered a stroke and was in coma for weeks. He survived that, but lost some function in his left foot.
Fact #4 : Larry King Had 7 Wives In 8 Marriages
Larry King was actually married eight times, to seven different women.
- Freda Miller in 1952
- Annette Kaye in 1961
- Alene Akins in 1961
- Mickey Sutphin in 1964
- Alene Akins (again) in 1968
- Sharon Lepore in 1976
- Julie Alexander in 1989
- Shawn Southwick in 1997
Fact #5 : Larry King Had COVID-19 But Died Of Sepsis
Larry King was hospitalised for COVID-19 in December 2020, and died on 23 January 2021.
However, his ex-wife Shawn Southwick (whom he divorced in 2019) said that he recovered from COVID-19, but died of sepsis as a complication.
It can be argued though that if he didn’t contract COVID-19, he wouldn’t have suffered from sepsis during his recovery…
