DOCTORS at Seghe Hospital are investigating whether COVID-19 is responsible for the death of a woman this week.

Acting Director of Health and Medical for Western Province, Doctor Michael Belande Buin said his team at the site have carried out initial examinations to see if COVID-19 was responsible for the woman’s death.

“We were informed that the deceased has other health issues but that cannot rule out COVID-19 so our investigation team is on the ground,” he said.

Buin said the deceased is a passenger of MV Marina who ran a trip to the Western Province earlier this month.

He said the deceased became sick and was transported to Seghe hospital but was not able to recover.

“At the moment we are just guessing so we have send our team to verify this informations,” Buin explained.
