Unfortunately we come to you with bad news. Malta has the first Covid-19 victim. The patient was a 92-year-old woman from Gozo.

Even though we were all hoping that we would never get to hear this news, unfortunately we are not immune to Covid-19 deaths. The woman who lost her life today was one of the 299 cases in Malta, which include the 5 that have fully recovered.

It has been reported that the woman already suffered from multiple health conditions. Dr Fearne reported that the woman was already very frail and that her demise was almost expected. She lost her life at Gozo’s hospital.

In a press conference, Dr Fearne warned the public that this was the first death but definitely not the last; even though everything is being done to avoid deaths. A plea for the most vulnerable and for those over 65 years old to be very cautious. Covid-19 can create complications for everyone, regardless the age, but when one has certain underlying health condition, the situation is far more alarming.

UnravelMalta send our deepest condolences to the relatives of this lady who lost her life today to Covid-19. May she rest in peace!
