One new virus case, one recovery

The Ministry of Health and Wellness said there was one new case of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) recorded among the 204 tests carried out by the Best-dos Santos Public Health Laboratory yesterday.

The 57-year-old Barbadian female arrived at the Grantley Adams International Airport on a Jet Blue flight yesterday afternoon and was immediately transferred to the isolation facility at Harrison Point, St. Lucy, after testing positive for the viral illness.           

The results also yielded a second consecutive negative test for one patient at the isolation facility, and that person will be discharged today.

Barbados’ tally of confirmed cases is 151, and recoveries have increased to 122. The number of people in isolation remains at 22.

The public health laboratory has completed 14 423 tests.

Included in that number are two tests conducted on Friday, which were both negative.
