Cain had been sick with the virus for several weeks. It is not clear when or where he was infected, but he was hospitalized less than two weeks after attending Trump’s campaign meeting in Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 20. Cain co-chaired Black Voices for Trump.

A statement on his Twitter account said he tested positive for COVID on June 29 and was hospitalized on July 1 because his symptoms were severe.
Following his death, his social media team, including his daughter Melanie Cain Gallo, previously said they would continue to tweet from Cain’s account
His social media and website team – including his daughter, Melanie Cain Gallo – announced that they would continue to tweet “ ideas he believed in ” from Mr. Cain’s account.
“We have decided here at Cain HQ that we will continue to use this platform to share the information and ideas he believed in.
He talked about the site a lot when he was ready to move away from it.
“We had hoped he would enjoy reading it in retirement, but he made it clear that he wanted to continue,” said Mrs. Gallo.
“Herman had an incredible career and was adored by everyone who ever met him, especially me,” Trump said on Twitter shortly after his death. “He was a very special man, an American patriot and a good friend.”

Cain briefly climbed to the top of the polls during the 2012 race to highlight the Republican presidential nomination through a plan to simplify tax laws.
Cain, a longtime Republican, was “a staunch supporter of conservative principles across the board,” tweeted Republican US Senator Lindsey Graham from South Carolina.
But Alexander said the stories about Cain that were often not told by the media had to do with what he did in his private life to help others have the same opportunities as he did.
He donated time and money to people who were evicted from their homes and to drug and alcohol addicts, Alexander said. He mentored young people and worked to end hunger, he said.
