Two more people tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday among the 152 tests conducted by the Best-dos Santos Public Health Laboratory.
A 36-year-old female visitor arrived on Air Antilles from Guadeloupe en route to Jamaica. On receipt of the positive test result, she was transferred to the isolation facility at Harrison Point, St. Lucy.
Joining her there was the other positive case, a 53-year-old Barbadian male, whose trip originated in the United States and who arrived on Caribbean Airlines from Grenada.
No one will be discharged from the isolation facility today. The two new positives bring the numbers in isolation to 23, and the number of confirmed cases to 176. Recoveries remain at 146.
