PMH Maternity Ward patient infected; results for second patient pending
Two patients from Princess Margaret Hospital’s maternity ward are in quarantine.
Hospital sources tell the Gallery one of the patients tested positive for COVID-19 and hospital officials are awaiting the test results of the second patient.
The results for the second patient should be ready tomorrow, said the insider.
PMH has closed at least two wards due to coronavirus after a patient tested positive over the weekend.
Several doctors, nurses and support staff are in quarantine while their colleagues complain of being overworked and overwhelmed but under-appreciated.
Doctors are pleading with the government to give them more support before the public healthcare system buckles under the pressure brought on by the surge in COVID-19 cases.
The country will surpass 500 new cases today.
