The Best-dos Santos Public Health Laboratory is continuing to assist cruise liners anchored off Barbados by testing crew members for novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Yesterday, 156 of the 214 tests carried out were at the request of the ships.

The Ministry of Health and Wellness said today all the results were negative. Additionally, no one will be released from the isolation facility at Harrison Point, St Lucy, today.

As a result, five people remain in isolation. Of the 97 people diagnosed since March 16, 85 have recovered, and seven have died.
