In transit visitor in isolation after positive COVID test
A Grenadian visitor who arrived on a British Airways flight on Tuesday is the latest COVID-19-positive patient in Barbados.
The 38-year-old man was in transit to Grenada when he was tested for the viral illness on arrival at the Grantley Adams International Airport. He is now in isolation at Harrison Point, St Lucy.
No one will be discharged from isolation today, so the number at the facility increased to 26. Confirmed cases now stand at 156 and recoveries at 123. There were seven deaths.
The Best-dos Santos Public Health Laboratory completed 149 tests yesterday and 15 028 since February. (BGIS)
