For the first time in many weeks, the country’s active COVID-19 cases have dropped below 200.
The most recent dashboard released by the Ministry of Health revealed that there are now 199 active infections.

However, three new cases were reported over the weekend, bringing the total to 1,216. Hospitalizations have dropped to three, while there are 196 people in isolation recovering from the disease.

These are results for Thursday, April 15.

Meanwhile, there were four new lab-confirmed infections on Wednesday, April 14, which came from the 99 samples processed by the Mount St. John Medical Centre.
Health officials have not yet released statistics for Friday, Saturday or Sunday.
In the meantime, public vaccinations resumed last Tuesday. On Friday, April 16, there were 225 persons vaccinated, bringing the numbers up to 28,639, as of that date.
About 200 people also took advantage of the mobile vaccine unit that was operating outside the Central Marketing Corporation on Saturday, April 17, from 5 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Meanwhile, although Phase 2 has seen only a moderate turnout by the public, Prime Minister Gaston Browne says that an uptick is expected. He says he is confident that the country will reach its 40,000 mark.
However, Browne is appealing to residents to avail themselves of the vaccine. He says it may become a requirement, based on the type of job a person has and what persons plan on doing.
