Organ transplant recipients are on immunosuppressants.

Exactly. Donors are usually in perfect health.

Though I do know an individual who was born with just one kidney.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

More likely a recipient.
The phrasing of "he had 1 kidney" makes it sound like he gave one away, not that he received another one. That's why I asked \_(ツ)_/

I have no idea what the story is. But I saw somewhere that he had medical issues. When it was posted above that he had one kidney, the logical conclusion would be that he was a kidney donation recipient rather than a donor (who would need to be in excellent health in order to be allowed to donate).

I think it sounds like he had 1 removed.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Right, and I made an assumption that the most common reason to have one removed is because of donation...

Moving on...

Also why would it throw the community into shock if it's because of covid?

Are you numb to the shocking effect of a 39-year-old Mother suddenly passing away if it's from Covid? To me, it's still shocking

100% agree - i was making an (off color) quip about the dual meaning of shock; how it shouldn't be a shock/surprise that someone died from Covid. I know that's not what the headline writer meant.
