Spain’s Mallorca has recorded its first death of a doctor due to the Coronavirus
Spain’s holiday destination island has sadly recorded the first death of one of its doctors after treating COVID-19 patients.
The COMIB Balearic Official College of Doctors published a statement on its website reporting that 59-year old German doctor Bernd Kablitz had died “suddenly” at home just days after being diagnosed with COVID-19.
The caring doctor known to hundreds on the island started suffering symptoms on Sunday and was tested positive.
The doctor went into self-isolation at his home, feeling only mild symptoms but rapidly deteriorated before passing away yesterday.
The German national had been serving as a doctor on the Spanish Island since his arrival in 2008 and was well known to many as he served at Rotger Quironsalud clinic in Palma during the pandemic, over the years he had also held his own practice.
A local patient registered at the doctor’s surgery told Global247news today upon hearing about the death: “He was a lovely man and a fantastic caring doctor, I will sadly miss him, my heart goes out to his wife and two daughters”
“He helped so many people working night shifts at the hospital, It’s a very sad loss indeed”
