Living to almost 101 is a real blessing. RIP, he was a special, special man. Looks like he caught it in hospital when he was already there for pneumonia. Even a cold will carry you off at that age.
Sadly I know of far too many people who have gone into hospital and caught Covid there and never come back out. Same thing happened with my Dad. I do wonder how infections spread so easily if the staff are doing to upmost with barrier nursing because ‘in theory’ you shouldn’t get it but I also wonder if it’s related to how ill these people were when they went in?
Either way it’s really sad news. Such a lovely man who inspired so many, including this brave little boy Tony - https://www.dailymail.co....inspired-Captain-Tom.html
Captain Tom sent him messages and the little boy has a knitted doll of Tom. Such a poignant story. I remember reading about Tony’s case when it was in the courts, amazing how he’s recovering.
