The coincidental ironies about which I've written came into play again.
I knew Charles had had a bypass. operation but he was as energetic as I am even more so.
Just a few minutes ago I learned that Charles had developed high blood pressure on Tuesday and after taking high blood pressure medication at home his condition worsened was taken to the hospital by ambulance on Wednesday and died on arrival.
I had been only barely aware that people with heart problems were endangered by the virus.
Minutes ago I thought to check google to see if I could learn more about the connection but I first went to Yahoo news to check the new articles and immediately saw a new addition about the dangers caused by peoples' taking certain high blood pressure medication because they have deadly reactions with the virus.
His wife told me his condition worsened after taking his meds.
He was a truly good person who had helped me more than once in the past. I had not talked to him for awhile and had only said hello at a distance in the past few weeks so he would not have gotten the virus from me but nevertheless I'll miss him. A cruel surprise, he was a good guy. I'll miss him.
Just prior to Charles' wife informing me of his death as I was unloading the car after my return from Stop and Shop I had been talking to the cop stationed out side that store. We were discussing the ins and outs of how vulnerable people would die if social restrictions were to be lifted now ( my view ) or months from now when government finally tells the public the the virus will bot go away and the country will have to be reopened come what may.
