Pneumonia Killed Goldie Harvey

Back to Dayo D1 Adeneye’s confirmation, Pneumonia might have killed Goldie Harvey that resulted in breathing difficulty.
Pneumonia is an inflammatory condition of the lung—affecting primarily the microscopic air sacs known as alveoli. It is usually caused by infection with viruses or bacteria and less commonly other microorganisms, certain drugs and other conditions such as autoimmune diseases.Typical symptoms include a cough, chest pain, fever, and difficulty breathing.
May her soul rest in perfect peace!
