The ITU patient is an unvaccinated non-resident, Deputy Prime Minister Chris Fearne said in a sudden press conference today.

During the same press conference, Fearne announced that a five-year-old girl had died after being placed on a ventilator while in a critical condition. An autopsy will be held to confirm the exact cause of her death.
