A further 88 samples were processed today, some of these included the initial set of samples picked up from contact tracing and the mapping exercise done over the weekend linked to the last 7 cases. These samples have returned negative, however, the further mapping of these cases is ongoing.
We however have identified two other cases as reactive for SARS-CoV2:
– A case in a returning male on the repatriation flight that arrived on Friday, July 10th. He is under quarantine at a hotel and is asymptomatic.
– A second case in a male in his 50’s who was seen as a patient at the San Ignacio Community Hospital over the weekend with gastrointestinal symptoms and a loss of sense of taste. The patient was discharged to self-isolate home. The patient has improved clinically and remains in isolation at home. The contact tracing for this last case is currently ongoing.
We have recovered a case so we have a total of 16 active cases.
Please, continue to remain safe, practice social distancing, always practice good hand hygiene and wear a mask while in public.
Our work continues.
