Pfizer has announced a breakthrough deal as the official sponsor for all state funerals of high-profile, sudden deaths until 2030.
The move has bipartisan support in Canberra and comes in the wake of former athletes and politicians dropping dead of heart attacks completely unexpectedly.
“I’m pleased to announced that Pfizer will pay the cost of all state funerals of high profile, sudden unexplained deaths until 2030,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison said.
“Whether it’s climate change or the stress of paying your bills on time, a sudden heart attack or stroke in middle age can be devastating.”
Anthony Albanese also paid tribute to late ALP Senator Kimberley Kitching ‘for supporting the mandates that eventually killed her.’
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has also announced that the Great Southern Stand at the MCG will be renamed the ‘Pfizer SK Warne Stand’.
