Two additional COVID-19 related casualties have been recorded in the territory, taking the total number of deaths to 42 persons.
Acting Chief Medical Officer (CMO), Dr Ronald Georges made the disclosure today during a virtual stakeholders meeting hosted by the Ministry of Health.
Dr Georges declined to offer any details of the deaths, including time of death, age ranges, or gender but disclosed that at least one of the persons that died was unvaccinated.
According to Dr Georges, there is often much dispute regarding the vaccination status of persons whose deaths have been documented as COVID-19 related, with persons sometimes having bones of contention regarding the details.
He stated that the vaccination status of the other deceased person was unknown at this time.
The number of total active positive COVID-19 cases have also seen a small reduction since the last update two days ago and now stand at 1,305 active positive cases.
The CMO said the territory’s next epidemiological summary will be released sometime later today.
