COVID-19 Patients Transferred from San Pedro to K.H.M.H.

Two suspected COVID-19 patients from San Pedro were rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital late this evening. According to a colleague on the ground in San Pedro, two elderly persons were experiencing respiratory complications and needed to be emergency lifted from the island and taken to the national referral hospital.  In these images captured by our News Five crew, an elderly person was transported via flight just after five p.m. from San Pedro. The aircraft arrived at the municipal airstrip to a waiting ambulance with the emergency medical technicians dressed from head-to-toe in personal protective gear. As the plane came to a stop, the ambulance drove up to the aircraft after which the patient was placed on a stretcher and transferred into the ambulance. The suspect case was then taken to the K.H.M.H. to be admitted in the designated unit for COVID-19 patients.
