So, COVID?

He was certainly at high risk because of his age and his beetus. "Sources with direct knowledge of Wilford's health tell us he was in an ICU wing of a hospital on dialysis, and very sick for days." Kidney failure can definitely be caused by COVID.

Articles like this make me even more suspicious that death counts are being deliberately suppressed.

Says he was 85. Wasn't Wilford 80 years old, 20 years ago?

Shouldn't have stopped going to the pool.

Always loved his style. Always played a down to earth character.

RIP.
