‘Perfectly healthy’ Texas dad with coronavirus dies from COVID-19, family says

Madeline Farber By Madeline Farber | Fox News


The novel coronavirus has claimed the life of a father of six in Texas, according to his family.

Adolph Mendez, who went by T.J., died on Thursday due to complications related to COVID-19, his family said. The New Braunfels resident was 44, the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung reported.

Brenda Johnson, one of the man’s six children, told the newspaper that her father had no underlying conditions and was “perfectly healthy” before falling ill with the novel virus.

Johnson described Mendez, a kindergarten teacher at Oakwood Church, as “patient” and "kind.”

“He cared about others,” she said. “He loved his family so much. He was very involved in our community and our church.”

Mendez's wife added that her late husband did not smoke or drink, was physically active and ate a healthy diet.

“You hear that the people who die are older or have previous health conditions but he was neither and the virus took him down hard,” she told the New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung.

“It can happen to anyone, it’s not just a story that happens to people across the world. It’s here and it’s real and it can kill anyone, just like it did my husband,” she added.
What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.

Did you watch one of the Joe Rogan videos posted earlier this week? In one they were talking about blood type as being a possible factor in how hard the disease hits you.

I am wondering aloud if blood type or some other genetic marker plays a role in the severity of the virus' attack. From all accounts, this man should not be dead.

I did see that....Type A said to be worse for COVID-19...according to the "doctor friend's" scuttlebutt...which incidentally is MY blood type. Its anecdotal....they might be way off like the whole ibuprofen-Coronavirus connection. Time will tell.

O was what Rogan's source said.

Texas is starting to post testing numbers. We're up to nearly 25K tests given (although only between 2-3K of those were by public labs).

That only leaves 28 million seven hundred thousand and change.....to go.

Millions of tests will be available, very soon. VP Pensive said so, and he's a Good Christian man. It must be right. Right?

The deaths in men outnumber the deaths in women by two to one in some areas.  The virus mutates.  The more cases there are the more mutations.  Failure to keep the cases down increases the risk of a mutation targeting you.

Under ideal conditions of temperature and pressure the organism will grow without limit.
