HMGoG deeply regrets to confirm a further death in Gibraltar from COVID-19, bringing the total number of deaths in our community related to COVID-19 to 84.
The deceased was a man aged 60-65 years old, who had a long term chronic condition. He died this morning of multiorgan failure and sepsis as a result of COVID-19. This will be recorded in today’s statistics as a death from COVID-19.
The Chief Minister, the Hon Fabian Picardo, said: “The loss of life of any member of our community to COVID-19 is devastating. My deepest condolences lie with the family and friends of the deceased.
“Thankfully, active cases in Gibraltar are decreasing, but as we continue to relax COVID-19 measures we must not let down our guard and strictly abide by all Public Health advice.
“We have now administered over twenty-three thousand vaccines. This is absolutely remarkable and I must thank all those involved in making this a reality. For those who have not yet been inoculated, please accept the offer when the GHA contact you. This is crucial in helping us finally beat this deadly virus”.
