A 27-year-old woman has died at the University of Montreal Hospital Center after contracting COVID-19, making her the youngest victim in Quebec, according to a TVA Nouvelles report from early May 14.
According to the TV news station, the victim suffered from multiple comorbidities. Her mother, who is a nurse at the Notre-Dame Hospital, is in intensive care after also contracting the virus. It’s unclear at this moment who was first infected between the two, or what is the original reason for transmission.
Santé Quebec has yet to record the fatality in its online database, which says as of Thursday at 1 p.m., no one under the age of 39 has died after contracting the virus.
