65 were quarantined, says Bostic

Since the outbreak of the coronavirus (Covid-19) last December, Barbados has quarantined about 65 people who arrived from China.

Minister of Health and Wellness Jeffrey Bostic said they had been screened and home quarantined, and most were eventually released.

He was speaking during a media conference called by Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley at Government Headquarters yesterday in response to the anchoring of the Carnival Fascination off Barbados.

The popular cruise ship was turned away by St Lucia because a few on board exhibited flu-like symptoms similar to the coronavirus.
