Cayman: 3 more COVID-19 Cases; 137 in total

The Chief Medical Officer, Dr John Lee, reports a further 414 COVID-19 tests which have been completed over the last 24 hours through the screening programme.  There are three positive results which likely represent cases that were community-acquired. Contact tracing has begun for these.

9815 people have been tested to date. Of these, 137 have been positive, of which 63 have fully recovered, with one death. No one is currently in the hospital receiving treatment for symptoms of COVID-19.

As a reminder, the last COVID-19 case presenting for clinical management was 27 April.  All the positive cases reported since then have been discovered through our wider screening programme. One of these has some symptoms, but this person has not needed hospital care and the symptoms do not seem to be COVID-19 related.

As a reminder, the HSA's PCR laboratory will be having a scheduled maintenance day later this week.
