Government reports new Covid-related death

By Stephanie Horsman - January 20, 2022

A 72-year-old has become the latest Covid victim in Monaco, and the third in just over a week.

The government revealed the fatality on Wednesday 19th January. It comes following the deaths of a 91-year-old resident and 100-year-old on 11th January. The total number of Covid-19 positive patients to die in the Principality since the pandemic began is 45.   

In addition to the death, there were another 98 new cases revealed on Wednesday, bringing the daily total under the three-digit mark in what is hopefully the start of a downward trend. There have been 7,041 people affected by the virus in Monaco all together.

As of Wednesday evening, there were 44 people under the care of Princess Grace Hospital (CHPG). Forty people, including 23 residents, are in a non-critical ward, whilst the final four, one resident included, are being treated in intensive care.

The Home Monitoring Centre is looking after 317 patients who have milder symptoms and are not in need of constant medical assistance.

The incidence rate in Monaco has stabilised for the first time since October, sitting this week at 1,953.
