Twenty-four hours after reported COVID-19 cases fell to a single digit, they are up to double digits again, as the dashboard released this morning, March 25, confirms 20 new infections.
The 20 were discovered among 116 samples tested by CARPHA.
The country’s total now stands at a shocking 1,100, with 329 active cases. This means there have been 941 infections in less than three months. Twenty-eight people recently recovered from the virus, bringing the total recoveries to 743.
The Ministry of Health says these figures reflect the period Tuesday, March 23.
Meanwhile, after meeting on Wednesday, March 24, the Cabinet has decided to retain the existing 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew.
One woman tells REAL News that this is a prudent decision, since the COVID-19 cases appear to be fluctuating, giving persons a false sense of hope.
“One day the cases are in the single digits, and you think to yourself that the country is doing well. Then, the next day, they are back up, and you [ask] what is going on? When are we going to overcome this thing?” the woman asks.
