Colin Powell dies from complications of COVID-19
Lt. Gen. Colin Powell has died from complications of COVID-19 at the age of 84, the Daily Mail is reporting. Powell, however, was a rare example of someone dying from the COVID-19 coronavirus despite being fully vaccinated.
On Facebook, Powell's family issued the following statement: "General Colin L. Powell, former U.S. Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, passed away this morning due to complications from COVID-19."
Powell was the United States' first African-American secretary of state. Although he served in the George W. Bush Administration, Powell was a moderate Republican who later supported President Barack Obama — and he was a vehement critic of former President Donald Trump.
