The Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) says it is investigating the circumstances that led to the death of former Chief Magistrate Mr Cecil Sullivan.
Sullivan, who was infected with the novel coronavirus, died today whilst waiting to be admitted to the GPHC.
According to reports, family members contend that the 88-year-old man was taken to the Hospital where the staff took some time to find a wheelchair to assist him into the institution.
As a result, the elderly man died whilst waiting in the vehicle.
Sullivan was diagnosed with Covid-19 last week and had only taken one dose of a vaccine.
Full statement from GPHC:
