LSU Health Shreveport Chancellor G.E. Ghali told the Monroe News-Star that Letlow, 41, experienced the heart attack following a hospital procedure related to the virus.
“It’s devastating to our entire team,” Ghali told the outlet, adding that Letlow had no underlying conditions.
“It was just COVID,” the chancellor said.
LSU Health directed Fox News to Letlow family spokesperson Andrew Bautsch, who did not immediately respond to a request for more information.
