An editor for The New York Times died from a heart attack one day after he received a Moderna Covid-19 booster jab.
Deputy Asia editor, Carlos Tejada, 49, passed away in Seoul, South Korea, a little over a week ago, the Times acknowledged Wednesday.
In a tweet on Dec. 18, Carlos’ wife Nora reported the cause was a heart attack.
Only one day earlier, Carlos boasted on Instagram that he’d just received a Moderna booster, jesting he filled out a form he couldn’t understand and was now a member of a K-pop fan club.
Back in January, Tejada opined about having the “privilege” to access vaccines “like the J&J jab Nora and I got just this morning.”
