Dr. Albert Duncan, MSJMC Medical Director said:
“We can confirm that sadly, a female patient, age 86, who had underlying medical conditions, has passed away at Mount St. John’s Medical Centre on Saturday February 20, 2021 at 11:45pm. She had tested positive for COVID-19.”
“Our thoughts and condolences remain with the patient’s family and loved ones at this difficult time.”
Even as we do our part by wearing masks and practicing physical distancing along with hand washing/sanitizing, we must remember we are fighting to protect our community. Together, with each of you, MSJMC will continue to work hard to combat this pandemic.
Important safety measures that have been scientifically-proven to reduce the spread of COVID-19, includes:
Wearing a mask
Practicing social distancing
Avoiding large gatherings
Additional data, including whether the patient was a resident or tourist (Imported/Non-Imported Case) will be available as a part of the National COVID-19 Dashboard provided by the Ministry of Health Wellness & the Environment.
The media are asked to respect the wishes of the family, and the interests of staff at the hospital to avoid any disruption to operational services.
