Two Chinese Kids Dead After Wearing Face Masks For Gym Class


Two young boys have lost their lives while trying to protect themselves from the deadly Coronavirus in China.

The tragedies struck at the end of April, Seven News Australia discovered on May 5th. Both victims were 14-year-old students following the China policy of wearing face covers during social gatherings.

The first boy collapsed on a running track during the gym class in Dancheng Caiyuan Middle School on April 24th, when the weather outside was no lower than 68F.

He passed out within two to three minutes according to his father, who was allowed to review CCTV footage.

A local hospital categorized the child’s death as a “sudden cardiac arrest”, and the school paid ¥370,000 ($50,000) to the grieving family. But the boy’s death has never been officially linked to the face mask.

The second teen passed away on April 30th, the same day that the first child was laid to rest. He was reportedly taking a 3,000-foot running test in an N95 mask when he fell to the ground and died. The incident happened in Changsha’s Xiangjun Future Experimental School, but the official cause of the boy’s death has not been revealed.
