Montreal hospital confirms 16-year-old dead due to coronavirus | CTV News
The Ste-Justine Hospital in Montreal confirmed Wednesday that a 16-year-old has died of COVID-19.
The hospital told CTV News the death happened on April 3, but did not release any further details.
In a statement, hospital spokesperson Florence Meney said that generally speaking, “people who die at a young age of COVID-19 are generally people who have major comorbidities.”
Meney said she was unable to provide further details about the youth’s death due to privacy concerns.
The teen is believed to be the youngest person to die of COVID-19 in Quebec. Last August, the virus claimed the life of Don Béni Kabangu Nsapu, who was 19. He died Aug. 16 at the Pierre-Le Gardeur Hospital in Terrebonne.
