Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley is warning that more young people are at risk of contracting COVID-19 and the country is now in for the long haul in the battle against the virus.

However, she said public health authorities are continuing to buckle down as Barbados seeks more vaccines, increases testing and puts more resources in place to protect the vulnerable.

Speaking during a televised press conference last night, Mottley told the country that the troublesome Delta variant is seeing the average age of people in isolation with the disease now around 43 years.

Her comments came on a day when Barbados recorded another 48 new infections of COVID-19, resulting in 203 people in isolation.
