Share post:

A 54-year-old Barbadian man was the only positive case of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) diagnosed today among 457 tests conducted by the Best-dos Santos Public Health Laboratory.

The man, who returned to Barbados on British Airways on October 11, tested positive after the second test.

Meanwhile, no one will be discharged from isolation today. The numbers in isolation have therefore increased to 17, while recoveries remain at 195. Confirmed cases now number 219. Seven people have died.

The laboratory has completed 29 854 tests. (BGIS)
