A 55-year-old Barbadian male has tested positive for novel coronavirus (COVID-19), bringing the national count to 82.

A statement from The Ministry of Health said the latest case, an employee of the National Assistance Board, came into contact with two known cases. He brings the number in isolation to 31.

No one was released from isolation today, so the number of recovered people remains at 44. Seven people have died.

Fifty-one tests were done by the Best-dos Santos Public Health Laboratory yesterday, and results were returned for 46.

The total number of tests done by the laboratory now stands at 2 420. (BGIS)
