Trinidad & Tobago : Report on dengue death submitted to Health Ministry

Via News Day :

" The report on the death of Asia Archibald, who succumbed to dengue, was submitted to the Ministry of Health last week. Chairman of the North Central Regional Health Authority (NCRHA) Dr Ashvin Sharma confirmed this yesterday at a public board meeting at The Auditorium, La Joya Complex, St Joseph. Efforts to contact Health Minister Dr Fuad Khan were futile.

Sharma listed the achievements, goals, plans and negative findings since the board’s appointment in November last year.

Archibald, eight, died in August from the deadly dengue virus. She was discharged from the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex (EWMSC), but fell seriously ill hours after. An investigation into her death was subsequently launched. While he listed plans for next month’s sod-turning ceremony for two chemo-dialysis centres at San Fernando General Hospital and the EWMSC, Sharma also noted Archibald’s death."
