Nicholas Synnott, the BA pilot who spent over 8 months in hospital with covid-19, has died aged 60, six months after being discharged from hospital. His death hasn't been attributed to covid (yet) but it certainly didn't do him any good.

He died on a flight. Makes me wonder if the different air pressure is to blame. Severe COVID seems to attack the inner organs, and makes them vulnerable to, I don't know, tissue being torn apart or something.

Those long-COVID-people, like Derek Draper, who "cannot really move", they are permanently damaged.

In this context, Azam Khan, the Cup and MMMDP pick, still hospitalised even though he's COVID negative now:

However, he's had a bladder infection which is now under control. And several other infections, for example, in his lung. Still, he's "stable".

I hadn't seen that, but presumably he flew back from Houston when he was discharged, so it sounds as if his condition deteriorated further.

It doesn't say where he died.

It does say that he contracted the virus on a flight.

If you want to invest in Burma it's the right moment. Cases and deaths exponentially increasing, very few vaccinated people, weak measures taken by government. Visible increase in the Burmese entries in "Deaths in 2021" in wiki. ONU esteems half population will be infected in a month.

Indeed, and their new prime minister /dictator just delayed the promised elections for another year and a half.
