TRINIDAD Y TOBAGO: Swine flu death at Mt Hope Hospital - EntornoInteligente / TRINIDAD Y TOBAGO: Swine flu death at Mt Hope Hospital / News day / Newsday was told that chief executive officer of the EWMSC Dr Andy Bhagwandass has confirmed that a patient who was warded at Mt Hope, died between Monday and yesterday after slipping into a coma while in the incubation stage of the highly contagious disease.

A little over a month ago, two persons died of the disease in the southland.

Newsday was also informed that two doctors based at the EWMSC who were in contact with the swine flu patients, have themselves tested positive for the disease and are at their respective homes recovering.

They are said to be in stable condition. The woman who contracted the disease shortly after giving birth is said to be in critical condition at the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) where her breathing is being assisted by machines. She has been administered Tamiflu which is the drug used to treat swine flu.

Efforts to reach Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh for a comment last night proved futile.
