Barbados has recorded 11 new cases of COVID-19 within the last two days.
This was disclosed by Acting Prime Minister Santia Bradshaw during an address to the nation from Ilaro Court tonight.
Minister Bradshaw made it clear that those 45 cases recorded since March 16 represented too high a number.
She added: “But our fear is that it will not end there. The prognosis, on our current trajectory, if we do not change course, as a nation, is for this number to continue to rise at an accelerated rate, over the course of the next few weeks.
“The Government of Barbados, the health services of Barbados, the social partners in Barbados, will not allow this to happen!” she asserted.
Of the 382 tests carried out at the Best-dos Santos Public Health Laboratory in the last month, 45 have been positive for COVID-19, up to yesterday.
