Guyana records 15 deaths among children from COVID


The Guyana Government Monday confirmed that 15 children have died as a result of the novel coronavirus, since the country recorded its first case of the virus in March 2020.

Overall, Guyana has registered 1,905 deaths and 51,203 infections linked to the virus.


Health Minister Dr Frank Anthony, speaking at the daily COVID-19 update briefing, told reporters that most of those who died had a range of co-morbidities.


“We continue to monitor and try to decipher what is causing the deaths. For some of those children that would have been hospitalised, we know for sure some of the comorbidities that they have had and the challenges, because some of them, the prognosis was poor with their underlying diseases and then they got COVID, so that complicated the problem,” Dr Anthony said.


Over the past few days, four children were reported to have died of the virus and the health minister said the Ministry of Public Health is currently investigating those deaths.


“We would have seen the four deaths of children and this is something we will do some further investigation on, because of the four, three of the children arrived at the hospital, they were dead before arrival to the hospital,” Dr Anthony said.


“Within the ministry we have a small committee of doctors who are going to get those charts and review them more thoroughly and do some interviews with the family of these children, so hopefully that will give us a better understanding of what is happening.”

  1. “We continue to monitor and try to decipher what is causing the deaths.”
    DUH… Statistically, children didn’t get covid until the idiots in power started FORCING vaccinations on the children!

  2. Sad. Slightly sensationalized headline but that’s why God gave us eyes to read the whole article. Also, the US is investigating a spike in non-COVID deaths among 18 – 49 year olds. Wonder if they’ll ever figure it out…surely it can’t be those strange injections they’ve been giving them?
