COVID-19 Update: One COVID-19 Related Death Reported

On Friday, 30 September 2022, the Health Services Authority confirmed one COVID-19 related death in the Sister Islands. The individual had received 2 doses of the vaccine and one booster and had severe comorbidities. 

The Ministry of Health and Wellness would like to extend condolences to the family.

As this is the fifth (5th) COVID-19 related death reported in the month of September, Interim Chief Medical Officer, Dr Autilia Newton, stresses the importance of the vaccination and the booster doses, especially among the elderly and immunocompromised.

“It is imperative that we continue to use all the resources at our disposal to protect ourselves and our loved one from severe illness and death from COVID-19, and our best resource continues to be the vaccine” Dr Newton stated.  “Research has shown us that the two doses of the vaccination in conjunction with the recommended booster doses will keep people out of the hospital, so I stress once again: get vaccinated and boosted.”

As announced in late August, COVID-19 reports to the public will be limited to hospitalisations and deaths.  Any notable increases in hospitalisations, as well as any new deaths, will be announced to the public immediately.

The COVID-19 vaccination and booster schedule is available on https://www.hsa.ky/public-health/coronavirus/ .
