DOTA 2 Pro player ‘444’ passes away: Anderson ‘444’ Santos, a 25-year-old DOTA 2 player has passed due to Covid-19 on February 6, 2021. 444 had faced some respiratory complications after he and three of his family members had tested positive for the virus. Santos was rushed to the ICU after he was faced with complications.
Santos was going through a lot of complications after testing positive and he didn’t have a nice path to recovery. On January 21, the Brazilian community of Dota 2 started a campaign in order to help him buy medicines and oxygen to help the treatment, and in one day, they collected around R $6000 and helped him out.
His sister also told publications that 444 was also suffering from symptoms of pneumonia and his lungs were 75 percent compromised at one point.
