A 53-year-old Swedish visitor is Barbados’ latest case of COVID-19. He arrived from Sweden on a charter flight on September 3, and tested positive for the viral illness on his second test, five days later.
His was the only positive result among the 164 tests performed by the Best-dos Santos Public Health Laboratory yesterday.
Meanwhile, two people will be discharged from the isolation facility at Harrison Point, St. Lucy, after recovering from COVID-19.
As a consequence, the numbers in isolation stand at 17, and recoveries have increased to 156. There are now 180 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Barbados, 93 females and 87 males.
The laboratory has completed 18,762 tests.
