The Ministry of Health and Social Development reported three more Covid-19-related deaths last Thursday, bringing the territory’s total to 61.
The ministry said the deceased were a 91-year-old woman and an 82-year-old man who died on Feb. 6, and an 87-year-old woman who died on Feb. 8.
Acting Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ronald Georges reminded the public that the elderly, people with chronic diseases, and immunocompromised people are particularly vulnerable to the virus.
“Vulnerable people should make a special effort to adhere to the public health protocols and avail themselves of opportunities to get vaccinated and boosted to lower their vulnerability to the severe impacts of Covid-19,” he said in the statement.
Updated numbers on active Covid-19 cases since last week were not published as of press time.
