The  Barbados Ministry of Health and Wellness on Monday described as ‘irresponsible’, a weekend voice note on social media which claimed that a woman who received her second COVID-19 shot ‘yesterday’ collapsed and died ‘today’.

According to the ministry statement, in essence the death was attributed to the vaccine.

“The Ministry of Health and Wellness, while it is aware of the case, will not breach its own confidentiality rules about patients’ medical records in order to refute an irresponsible social media post that was based on absolutely incorrect information relating to the individual’s vaccination status,” the statement said.

It said that Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Kenneth George, after extending sympathy to the family of the woman, stressed that while circumstances surrounding the death will be fully investigated, at this stage it is being treated as a sudden death, with no link to any COVID-19 vaccine.
