“Disturbing trend” of deaths in younger persons

    Dr. Maryam Abdool-Richards.

    Dr Maryam Abdool-Richards is begging persons to adhere to the COVID-19 regulations, as health officials are now reporting deaths in younger persons.

    During today’s Health Briefing, the Principal Medical Officer highlighted the shift in pattern, which she says is of great concern.


    In addition to that, she says hospitalizations continue to increase.

    Dr Abdool-Richards warned that the parallel health system now just seven days away from being at capacity.

    As such, she is begging persons to avoid congregating and co-mingling, especially with Mother’s Day coming up.

    She was also critical of the concept of a “bubble”.
