Share post:

A statement from the Ministry of Health and Wellness today said a 31-year-old Barbadian male is the latest coronavirus (COVID-19) positive case in Barbados.

His case is being investigated by the ministry, since he has no recent travel history, nor can he be linked to any known contacts.

This was the only positive result among 177 returned by the Best-dos Santos Public Health Laboratory yesterday.

There are now 85 cases of COVID-19 – 44 females and 41 males. The number of people in isolation has moved to 21, while the number of recovered people remains at 57. There have been seven deaths.

The public health laboratory has now completed 3 185 tests. (BGIS)
