My opinion I think the deaths were coincidence. Howard Carter, the man who actually opened the tomb, never believed in the curse and lived to a reasonably old age of 65 before dying of entirely natural causes. The people died shortly after the discovery maybe because they were too worried about the curses and thus got sick and even died. I think the deaths were coincidence.
