A 27-year-old woman is among five persons who died of COVID-19 pneumonia at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital between Thursday and Friday, health officials announced Friday evening. 

The woman is the youngest of the 26 people in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) to have died of COVID-19. 

The woman tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, Sept. 29, the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) said in a press statement.

The statement did not specify on which day each of the five persons died nor did it indicate whether they had pre-existing conditions, as NEMO has indicated with each of the previous deaths.

NEMO, however, said that the five deceased were unvaccinated against COVID-19.

The five deaths bring to 26 the total number of people who have succumbed to COVID-19 in SVG.

None of the deceased were vaccinated against COVID-19, NEMO said. 

The deaths bring to 14, the number of COVID-19 deaths in SVG since Sept. 9, when the country began seeing an uptick in cases that health authorities have blamed on the presence of three variants in the country. 

NEMO said that the other deceased are:

— a 44-year-old male who tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, Sept. 28;

— a 46-year-old male who tested positive for COVID-19 on Sept. 19;

— an 87-year-old male who tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday, Sept. 27; and

— a 50-year-old male who tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, Sept. 28.

Meanwhile, NEMO said that 55 new COVID-19 positive cases were reported from 356 samples processed on Wednesday, resulting in a positivity rate of 15.4%. 

Four cases were detected on exit screening. 

All other cases are contacts of known positive cases and persons seeking care. 

Forty-four rapid antigen positive results were reported for Wednesday, Sept. 29. 

There are currently 22 patients admitted for COVID-19 at the Argyle Isolation Facility.

Of these patients, 21 are unvaccinated and one patient is fully vaccinated. 

A further 29 patients are admitted to the COVID-19 wards at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital. 

Of these, 26 are unvaccinated, two patients are partially vaccinated, and one patient is fully vaccinated. 

Eight new recoveries were noted over the reporting period, leaving 1,093 active cases. 

Since March 2020, SVG has recorded 3,563 cases of COVID-19, of which 2,444 have recovered.

“In view of the confirmed presence of the Delta, Mu and Gamma variants in the community and the significant increase in the number of new infections, transmission, severe COVID-19 disease and deaths, strict enforcement and compliance with all protocols and recommendations by everyone is strongly recommended. 

“The correct and consistent use of masks, avoidance of crowds, physical distancing, proper hand sanitising and immunisation with available vaccines have all been proven to significantly reduce the risk of being infected, getting sick and or dying from the COVID-19 virus,” NEMO said.

  1. Earlier times people were dying from underlying conditions and now they are dying from not vaccinated ?? Very interesting.

  2. Why are we publicly stating people’s vaccination status even in death?

    One’s medical records and history is no longer confidential or did I miss several years of law?

    This needs to be stopped. Didnt SVG sign some medical charter of patient’s rights or something of the sort?

    Someone needs to sue the authors of these press release and test the status quo in court!

  3. I do not trust any information from or government anymore. Why is it that in other countries covid-19 deaths occur with the vaccinated as much as the unvaccinated, but in SVG they want to tell us that not one vaccinated person has ever died at all! and not from Covid-19. ASK AROUND AND YOU WILL FIND HOW VERY UNTRUE THIS IS!I just found out yesterday about another sweet lady that died a day after getting vaccinated in SVG. Her name was Dorothy from Sharpes.
    It has been proven that Covid incidences have been “doctored” in many countries in order to encourage we the people to get vaccinated. But in SVG they are taking this to a whole new level. In a fair, free, honest country there would be people going to prison if misinformation causes deaths.

  4. Stating “There are currently 22 patients admitted for COVID-19 at the Argyle Isolation Facility.
    Of these patients, 21 are unvaccinated and one patient is fully vaccinated. “”
    That doesnt break any confidentially rule because they are not personally identifying anyone, that’s just numbers.

  5. Well could it said that the individuals who were uñvaccinated and died are the authors of their own misfortunes and their chicken (ignorance) have come home to roost?

  6. Contrary to the wicked lies being spread by the anti-vaxxer fanatics, all over the world nearly all COVID-19 deaths have been of unvaccinated persons, whether with comorbidities or not.

    A few fully vaccinated people have also died because none of the vaccines are 100 percent effective.

    As for NEMO stating whether those contracting COVID-19 are vaccinated or not, this is no breach of confidentiality or privacy since no names or other person identification are attached to the numbers.

  7. The biggest source of misinformation in the comments section when it concerns Covid-19 comes from C. BEN-DAVID.
    He gets all his information off the FAKE NEWS. Very Shameful!
    If he lived in SVG he could GET OFF HIS BUTT and ask around and find out if anyone has died from vaccines in SVG, (such as my mother!), instead he states what we all know is not true coming from FAKE NEWS.

    No wonder u are called wonder wendy. I wonder where ur brain is. I will not even try to wonder.

  9. If you want to find a needle in a haystack use a metal detector. We live in the third millennia (since they started to count time) it’s hard to believe that the world powers are out to kill us all using covid19 and covid19 vaccines and are lying about it all.
    There are man made objects moving about on Mars and other man made objects that have left the solar system. (google it or search wikipedia if you don’t believe) that’s not all, today you can communicate wireless from one continent to the other half way or all the way around the planet like magic. Humans organs can be grown in labs and animals can be cloned.
    Believe it or not these things are real.

  10. I concur with Vincy lawyer that having revealed the person’ age one can easily say without a shawdow of a doubt that the person is Ms. X or Y. Age is normally given in death announcements. It is easy to make the association as to the cause of death.

  11. Jamal, I strongly agree with your comment. I think that everyone who is fearful of taking the risk of having this jab should come to this country to have it, guaranteed you will be safe , no adverse reactions for sure. / no blood clots and low platelets, no menstrual problems, no cardiac events, no deaths. NO COMPLICATIONS GUARANTEED.
