A CARICOM national, resident in Barbados, is the 83rd person who has tested positive for novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

A press release from the Ministry of Health and Wellness today said the 72-year-old woman was the only new positive case among 89 tests conducted yesterday by the Best-dos Santos Public Health Laboratory.

The ministry reported that she has no recent travel history, and investigations into the source of contact are ongoing.

She brings the number in isolation to 23. No one was released from isolation today, so the number of recovered people remains at 53. There have been seven deaths.

So far, 2 788 tests have been completed by the public health laboratory. (BGIS)
