Did the family of Patient Four lie on the Director of Health?

PATIENT 4 UPDATE

55-year-old Hubert Pipersburgh lost his fight against COVID-19 on Sunday.  As we reported yesterday, the patient’s wife, Maria Estella Recinos issued a statement on Facebook with a timeline of Pipersburgh’s illness.

55-year-old Hubert Pipersburgh lost his fight against COVID-19 on Sunday.  As we reported yesterday, the patient’s wife, Maria Estella Recinos issued a statement on Facebook with a timeline of Pipersburgh’s illness.  In her statement, she spoke of being treated indifferently and of not being able to access help at the Western Regional Hospital in the first instance.  Recinos also noted that she had reached out to Dr. Marvin Manzanero on March 27 when the symptoms worsened.  During today’s edition of Ask the Expert, Dr. Manzanero spoke briefly on Recinos’ allegation.

Dr.Marvin Manzanero, Director of Health Services: “I can appreciate one side of the story being told, I am not I think in a position to be engaging . I can respect the grieving process of the family. As a clinician I can tell you that I empathize with that but once there is the due process I will say what was said because there’s an allegation in there in terms of me being called and that’s not true that’s all I’m going to say in reference to that. There was no conversation on March 27th.”

The Government Press Office issued somewhat of a response to Estella’s statement saying, quote, “an investigation of the public health response and medical care given to Mr. Pipersburgh as recounted by Ms. Recinos has already begun.” End of quote.
