Cross Frontier worker dies from Covid-19 reports Gibraltar Government

Share

GIBRALTAR has now recorded its first Covid-19 death, this in a female cross border worker in her 40s who was diagnosed with the virus in Spain where she was a resident and has subsequently died.

The Gibraltar Government has become aware of this death through persons who know the deceased and it has been confirmed through contact between the relevant medical authorities.

The Government would like to express its most sincere condolences to her family, friends and work colleagues and repeats the advice given to the public to take extra precautions if travelling to Spain.

It also stresses that the average age of those infected with Covid-19 in Gibraltar continues to rise and follows the trend in many parts of Europe where the younger generation contracted the virus and then passed it on to their parents and grandparents.

The number of active cases in Gibraltar now includes five persons who are over 70 and this was anticipated by the earlier statements from the Government calling on those over 70 to avoid contact with younger family members and for those over 70 to stay at home insofar as possible.
