Dr. Paul Hannam, the Chief of Emergency Medicine and Program Medical Director at North York General Hospital (NYGH), died “suddenly and unexpectedly” on Saturday while out jogging, according to his colleagues.
According to his colleagues, the cause of his death is a mystery at present. He was fully jabbed.
Chief Medical Strategy Officer at Mount Sinai Hospital, Howard Ovens, announced the sudden death of Dr. Hannam via Twitter.
“Canadian Emergency Medicine is in mourning tonight,” Ovens tweeted.
“Paul Hannam, Olympic sailor, marathon runner, family man, ED director at NYGH, a sweet, thoughtful, compassionate and gentle man died suddenly today on a run. The quintessential mensch. Hug someone you love.”
When asked if an autopsy is being done to ease public concerns, Dr. Oven responded that Dr. Hannam is not a public figure and his family deserves privacy and respect.
Dr. Oven retweeted a post from another doctor arguing that sudden cardiac death during exercise is virtually always caused by an arrhythmia and not by a vaccine.
Tributes have poured in following Hannam’s passing.
