Active COVID-19 cases are in decline and now stand at 800, while hospitalization have dropped to 31 patients

There were 58-lab-confirmed COVID-19 infections over a two-day period, as the country’s active cases continue to decline and now stand at 800.

The Ministry of Health says 45 new cases were recorded on October 11, while 13 were reported on October 12.

The 45 positive results were realized from 119 samples processed at the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre and 80 at the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA).  

The 13 positive cases came from among 121 samples tested at the hospital and 55 at CARPHA.  

Therefore, the total number of confirmed cases in Antigua and Barbuda stands at 3,830.  

There are 31 hospitalized cases, six of which are severe, 17 mild, and eight moderate.  A total of 117 recoveries were recorded over the two-day period, increasing that total to 2,937.

Meanwhile, 45,088 individuals have been fully inoculated, while 9,670 have received their first dose, according to the Ministry of Health – which seems to indicate a decline in  vaccination numbers. 

The dashboard published on Monday, October 11, for the period October 9, recrods partial vaccinations at 10,030.

It is unclear what could have accounted for the change in numbers.
