Grenada (Loop News) – Four more COVID-19 related deaths have occurred in Grenada within the last 24 hours.
The Ministry of Health says a teenager is among the latest deceased. The 18-year old, who is now publicly known to be a student of the T.A. Marryshow Community College, passed away Thursday morning from complications related to COVID-19.
The other two deaths at the General Hospital were a male and female, both of whom were over the age of 50. The fourth death was a 59-year old, who died at home. Post mortem testing revealed that she was COVID-19 positive.
The Ministry of Health and by extension, the Government of Grenada has extended its deepest sympathy to the family and friends of the deceased.
The Ministry continues to encourage Grenadians who are eligible to be vaccinated to do so as the vaccines have been scientifically proven to help protect against severe disease, hospitalisation and death, in the event of breakthrough infections.
Grenada’s COVID-19 dashboard for September 8 reported 135 new positive cases which have inflated the number of active cases to 1,406.
There are 37 persons currently in hospital and 328 persons are listed as recovered.
