A patient at Noble’s Hospital has sadly died with Covid-19.
While the person died with the virus, it was not the primary cause of death. A total of 27 people have now died on our island with the virus.
The gov has said that in future, deaths will be split to show where Covid-19 was the primary cause of death. The existing data will be amended to reflect this to ensure a consistent approach to reporting.
Chief Minister Howard Quayle said: ‘This is terribly sad news and my thoughts are with this person’s family and loved ones, to whom I extend my condolences.
