Jamaican COVID-19 cases climb

The Ministry of Health and Wellness last night announced that Jamaica has recorded four more positive COVID-19 tests.

This brings the total number to 25. The four announced yesterday, were separate from the two cases that were announced on Monday.

The six overall new cases are: two males, both 61 years old, with a travel history that includes Trinidad, London, Egypt, and Dubai -they arrived in Jamaica on March 11; a 58-year-old female, of a Kingston and St Andrew address, with a travel history from France and who returned to Jamaica on March 10; a 42-year-old male from Westmoreland, with a travel history to the United Kingdom, who returned to Jamaica on March 12; and a 61-year-old female from Clarendon, with a travel history that includes New York, Spain, France, and the United Kingdom.

That passenger returned to Jamaica on March 18 on flight BA2263. She contacted the Health Ministry’s COVID-19 helpline when symptoms developed.

This triggered the Rapid Response Team and she was taken into isolation.

Seven are import-related

Seventeen of the now 25 confirmed cases are imported; seven are import-related; and one remains under investigation.

The data currently shows that more males (16) than females (nine) are confirmed with COVID-19. The youngest person to test positive is 24 years old while the oldest is 79.

Testing for the virus continues at the National Influenza Centre. To date, 150 samples have been tested. Of that number 25 have returned positive results; 123 have come back come back negative; and two are pending.

Some 514 persons have come into the island from a country of interest since January 31. Of that number, 14 are under quarantine in a government facility and 237 are under home quarantine. The home quarantine numbers do not include the residents of 7 Miles and 8 Miles in Bull Bay or those of Corn Piece Settlement in Clarendon.
