Alaska: Man who died eaten alive by grizzly bear counted as COVID-19 death

A man who died after being attacked by a grizzly bear was counted as a COVID-19 death in Alaska, according to the Anchorage Herald.

Bernard Russell, 67, had been hiking near his home when he was attacked by what is believed to be a grizzly bear.

Russell was found in critical condition, partly decapitated and missing several organs and limbs near Glenn Highway before he was transported to the Alaska Regional Hospital.

Hospital staff tried to revive the 67-year-old man whose left arm, liver, lungs, and legs were reported missing but their efforts were unsuccessful.

“Possibly the grizzly bear was attracted by the smell of the coronavirus transmitted through the particles floating in the air,” Dr. Alan White at the Alaska Regional Hospital told reporters.

Although no coronavirus testing was done onto the remains of Bernard Russell, 67, hospital staff has ruled that COVID-19 was responsible for the man’s death.

“Had this man respected social distancing with the bear and worn a mask, this death could have been easily prevented,” admitted Dr. Alan White at the Alaska Regional Hospital.

Although no COVID testing has been done on the remains of Bernard Russell, Dr. Alan White claims that the deceased showed “overwhelming symptoms of the disease” even though several of his limbs and organs were reported missing.

“If people do not respect simple sanitary measures to fight COVID-19 these tragic incidents are likely to repeat themselves,” Dr. White warned.

Alaska Regional Hospital has repeatedly denied falsely reporting positive COVID cases after the establishment was under scrutiny for labeling fourteen avalanche victims as COVID-19 positive deaths last March.
