WWE wrestler James Harris, who was known by WWE fans as “Kamala” or “The Ugandan Giant,” has died. He was 70.

The World Wrestling Entertainment website confirmed the wrestler’s death in a statement released on Sunday but did not reveal his cause of death.

However, Kenny Casanova, the writer who co-authored Harris’ autobiography, Kamala Speaks, shared in a Facebook post that the wrestler died after contracting the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

“Just got off the phone. Unfortunately, the rumors were correct. To make matters worse, it was Corona that took him; he was one of the good ones,” Casanova wrote in his post.

Per The Washington Post, Harris had suffered from many health issues in recent years and had both of his legs amputated due to complications from diabetes.

In a span of four months, restaurant dining rooms closed, reopened, then reclosed. The same goes for bars, gyms and other businesses that were shut down abruptly in March and restarted in May, even though COVID-19 was nowhere close to being contained.
