      Two new cases of COVID-19 bring total to 8, but no advice on improvement to the fight

      In a release todayfrom the Government Information Unit we learn that “As of Tuesday, April 7, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases on Montserrat has increased to eight.”

      While the Ministry of Health and Social Services (MoHSS) continues to report new cases and tout and encourage, “practice good hygiene, reporting all respiratory symptoms to the St. Peter’s Clinic and continuing to stay indoors,” as practiced and enforced elsewhere (some without a lockdown), they do nothing to advise the small population how to build their immune system to aid the fight against the virus should they come in contact. Neither is there any report that essential business places, are encouraged to do their best to ensure their areas of business are kept sanitised, while ensuring that those come into their places of business, wash their hands, with mats available to clean their shoe soles, before entering the store.

      Today the Ministry reports, “six samples were sent to the Caribbean Public Health Agency, (CARPHA) Reference Laboratory for testing yesterday Monday, April 6, 2020.

          Montserrat has recorded its first full recovery; while two persons have tested positive for COVID-19.

          The Ministry of Health and Social Services (MoHSS) has received the results of eight samples recently dispatched to CARPHA Reference Laboratory for testing. The results returned with two (2) of the eight (8) samples, testing positive for COVID-19.

          The new positives include one hospitalized individual while the other is in self–isolation at their residence.

          Among the six (6) samples testing negative was the second repeat test of one of the islands previously confirmed cases. This means that this individual is Montserrat’s first full recovery from COVID-19.

          Therefore, Montserrat has recorded 11 confirmed cases overall—10 confirmed cases on the island, nine of which are active cases, as one has now recovered.

          While the recovery of one patient represents a win in the fight against COVID-19, the Ministry noted that the battle is far from over. Residents of Montserrat are therefore advised to remain aware of the symptoms of the disease, and to contact the St. Peter’s Clinic at 491- 5436 or 496-9724 or the Glendon Hospital Casualty Department at 491-2802 or 491-2836 should they experience fever, cough, difficulty breathing or any other ‘flu- like’ symptoms.

              Almost every country in the world is by now keeping a close eye on the daily changes in coronavirus cases and where they find themselves on the COVID-19 curve.

              But it is important to understand the limitations of this case data, especially when comparing different countries.

              A new COVID-19 report by the Caribbean Development Bank, for example, shows that Montserrat and the Cayman Islands have by far the highest number of coronavirus cases on a per capita basis in the Caribbean.

              Cayman currently has 66 cases, with one death related to COVID-19. Seven of the infected have recovered, resulting in 59 active cases in the islands. Cayman has a population of about 65,000. Montserrat recorded 11 coronavirus cases for a population of less than 5,000.
