BREAKING: Another COVID-19 death at GPHC
A 34-year-old man became Guyana’s 14th COVID-19 death on Thursday afternoon.
The News Room was reliably informed that the man was in the COVID-19 Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of the Georgetown Public Hospital since June 22.
Just two days ago Guyana recorded its 13th COVID-19 death at the GPHC.
That individual was identified as 42-year-old Bent Street, Albouystown resident.
Kevin Ridley was referred to Accident and Emergency Unit of the hospital on Monday, June 29 by another health facility.
He had complained of shortness of breath and so doctors at the hospital conducted a COVID-19 test on him but he died hours later the same day at the hospital.
The News Room was reliably informed that Ridley was never admitted to the hospital and it is unclear how many persons he came into contact with.
