  1. Yatzmech: Cause death cannot be determined without an autopsy. Speculation regarding vax status has no bearing on this unfortunate death.

  2. @amil, NYS has virtual autopsies where they scan the body, they also draw blood for toxicology report both 100 muttar, there was a lot of effort to come up with this when you have a sudden death.
