PHA Refutes Irresponsible Message on Social Media

The Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) emphatically refutes reports on social media that the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) is creating virtual wards for the storage or identification of remains of persons who perished as a result of Hurricane Dorian.  This is completely false, and the Authority strongly urges persons sharing such information to cease doing so, as it is causing increased and unnecessary stress on persons seeking confirmation of loss of life regarding relatives. 

The PHA will continue to provide updates to the public with respect to our medical response to Hurricane Dorian and its aftermath.
