A sad milestone....

Today brought news of at least the 100th jazz-related death from COVID-19 since the pandemic began. 

Singer and songwriter Tsepo Tshola died today (July 15) at a hospital in Teyateyaneng in his native Lesotho, a mountain kingdom that is surrounded by South Africa. He was 67. He performed for more than 40 years, primarily in Lesotho, South Africa and Europe. 

 I have a few more details in Chapter 4 of my COVID log.  

Tshola's was the 100th such death that I have been able  to document. I fear there may have been more, because not all obits or death notices list a cause.

Here are links to the chronology: Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Chapter 3, Chapter 4 and Chapter 5.
