Cayman: 3 positive tests; 199 COVID-19 cases total

The Chief Medical Officer, Dr John Lee, reports 623 COVID-19 tests carried out since Friday’s press conference.  Three were positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 disease, and the people were identified through the screening programme and are not symptomatic.  Two of these are returning travellers and one is presumed to have acquired the condition locally.
