Before his death, Vidal Wan was hospitalized for several weeks, according to the “Le Journal de Montreal”.
A nurse by profession came to help administer doses at a vaccination center located at the Bill-Durnan Arena in Montreal. Nevertheless, according to the information from the “Journal”, Mr. Won went there at his own peril and risk, since the vaccine was not offered to him.
“Mr. Yuon’s contribution is invaluable and the announcement of his death has caused shock to all healthcare professionals,” said Nancy Bedard, President of the Interprofessional Federation, in a Quebec-FIQ health press release.
“The loss of one of us reminds us of how vulnerable we are to this virus,” she continued.
The Center-Ouest-de-l’Ile-de-Montréal, a comprehensive university center for health and social services, declined to answer questions in the Journal “for confidentiality reasons.”
