So despite all the protestations and confusion, Christmas happened! Covid-19 and all, Jamaican people still found a way to share with family and friends and enjoy good food, drink and fellowship.

Double sprint world record holder Usain Bolt is still awaiting official confirmation from Ministry of Health officials that he has tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus.

The North-East Regional Health Authority (NERHA) has confirmed the death of one of its medical interns while on the job at the Annotto Bay Hospital in St Mary.

He has been identified as Dr. Yakeev Morris.

He was assigned to the Pediatric Department at the Annotto Bay Hospital.

It’s alleged, the 26-year-old doctor died while doing a 36-hour shift.

Reports are that yesterday Dr. Morris was accompanying a clinical team with the transfer of a neonate from the Pediatric Ward to the Bustamante Hospital for Children in Kingston.

He reportedly complained of dizziness and feeling unwell.

 

Dr Morris subsequently collapsed and was unresponsive.

He was immediately taken to the Accident & Emergency Department where despite efforts by the medical team to resuscitate him he did not regain consciousness.

He was later pronounced dead.

The cause of death is unknown at this time.

NERHA says the Annotto Bay Hospital has started grief counseling sessions with staff members.

Efforts are also being made by the Hospital’s management to reach out to his family.

Members of the Senate on Wednesday (August 12) approved Resolutions to end the States of Public Emergency (SOEs) that are currently in place in sections of the island.

Tensions are high in sections of East Kingston this afternoon following the killing of a well-known PNP activist and the reputed leader of the Burger Gully gang, Devon Murray.
