Two women over 90 years old passed away today. Both elderly women who were residents at the Obra das Mães (elderly home) suffered from underlying conditions and were very weak, the Novel Coronavirus Response and Coordination Centre announced.
The first case was an unvaccinated 100-year-old chronically ill bedridden woman – with a history of hypertension, brain degeneration, fractures and other chronic underlying diseases – who tested positive for Covid-19 on 30 June. She was then sent to the Public Health Clinical Centre for treatment in isolation.
During this isolation period, she did not present any symptoms until this morning when her condition deteriorated. Despite being resuscitated by healthcare professionals, she still passed away.
The second case was a double-jabbed 94-year-old chronically ill woman who was also sent to the Public Health Clinical Centre for isolation on 29 June after testing positive for Covid-19. The patient had a history of hypertension, hyperlipidemia, stroke and other chronic underlying diseases, and required long-term care.
