A US military veteran of World War II has died from the coronavirus, over a century after his twin brother died in the Spanish Flu pandemic. Philip Kahn, 100, died at his home in Long Island last week, with his doctor saying tests showed he had contracted COVID-19…. Kahn’s brother, Samuel, died just from the Spanish Flu just weeks after the two were born in New York City in December 1919. “He had this level of sadness about it because, while he was born a twin, he never got to experience being a twin,” Zysman said. “He carried this void with him his entire life.”
