That is tragic and, was of course quite avoidable.There is another side to the equation in these strange times in which we live. Anyone who takes it upon themselves to propose a social meeting is taking on a particular risk and responsibility.
One Sunday, back in March, just before they started vaccinating mayores de edad, a well-known individual in the field I work aged 75 (single-parenting his 15-year old daughter) accepted an invitation to lunch at the home of friends. It was an invitation that he should not have accepted and that should not have been offered. On the Wednesday, the brother of one of the hosts tested positive, and on the Thursday the hosts also started experiencing symptoms. The hosts informed the 75-year old, who, by the weekend also started to show symptoms. He started to blog about his Covid experience, hence all these details are widely known. Three weeks later he was dead, and this 15-year old daughter was fatherless. He is gone, but the couple who invited him are not, and will have to live with the decision they took to invite a senior into a closed and presumably mask-free space during the height of the pandemic.
