A 17-year-old young man died today from Covid-19, as confirmed by Police Commissioner Henry Escalera to Wapa Televisión.
The minor was the son of two police officers.
“It is with great regret that we receive the news that the son of two companions died after battling with Covid-19. At his young age, this young man fought for his life with courage,” said Escalera.
“We join the pain that overwhelms his parents, both members of the Police Bureau, as well as his brothers, friends and other family members. We join in prayer for the rest of his soul and strength for his loved ones,” he added.
After talking with the family of the minor, Escalera sent him a “hug in solidarity with the family.” “May he rest in peace,” he concluded.
