A spokesperson said the hospital could not provide more details and the law prohibits it from “giving out any information that could lead to the identification of a person or concerning a person’s medical file.”

“In general, people who die at a young age from COVID-19 are generally people who had significant co-morbidities,” the spokesperson said.

More to come.
