April 26, 2021: COVID-19 associated death in new case

Yukon’s Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Brendan Hanley has confirmed a second death of a Yukon resident with COVID-19.

The person had unrelated health conditions that caused their death. The person contracted COVID-19 near the time of death and is therefore considered a COVID-19 associated death. This person will be counted as case 81.

My entire team and I send our deep condolences to the family of this individual. Out of respect for this person and their family, we will not be releasing any additional information during this period of grieving.
