“The pandemic is nowhere near over,” Minister of Health Kim Wilson said, noting that case numbers are rising and “there is an increase in people coming through the Emergency Department with the coronavirus, and hospital admissions have also risen.”
The latest test results stated there are are now 28 people in hospital, as compared to 12 people on July 6th and 5 people on June 29th
In releasing the test results last night, Minister of Health Kim Wilson said, “The pandemic is nowhere near over, and Covid-19 remains a Public Health Emergency of International Concern, reconfirmed by the World Health Organisation as recently as this week.
“We must continue to take precautions and avoid the risks of getting infected. Our case numbers are rising, and our test result data is undercounted as most people are testing at home and not reporting their positive status to the Government.
“There is an increase in people coming through the Emergency Department with the coronavirus, and hospital admissions have also risen. I am strongly encouraging everyone to please continue to follow public health guidance.”
The World Health Organization said on Tuesday that Covid-19 remains a global emergency, nearly 2-1/2 years after it was first declared. “Covid-19 is nowhere near over,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told a virtual press conference from Geneva after the announcement. “As the virus pushes at us, we must push back.”
