An 84-year-old Maltese male has lost his battle against the Covid-19 virus, making him the third person to lose his life as cause of the virus.
He was admitted to Mater Dei hospital yesterday, where tests confirmed he was positive for the virus. He suffered from other health conditions, which only made the effect of Covid-19 worse. He passed away at Mater Dei earlier this morning.
The Minister of Health appeals to the public to follow and obey the measures that have been laid out for us, as that is the only way we can safeguard our elderly and those who are more susceptible to be affected by the virus.
Condolences to the family of the victim. Our hearts go out to you.
