Sundry reports about this Russian ice dancer. It is described as "pneumonia". The general feeling I have is that he contracted Covid, due to the casual disregard of Covid precautions I see every day in Russia. It started with the removal of his toes, and then other parts of his feet. Now his hands have also gone, according to the news, and he has kidney failure. This looks like systemic organ failure, having seen the effects of covid posted so many times on these pages I tend to go for cause and effect. . I know general sepsis is awful, but it seems like he has blood clots circulating round his body.
