No New Cases of COVID-19; 66 Cases Under Investigation

The last confirmed cases of COVID-19 were last week Monday and it is now seven days since the Ministry of Health has not reported a case relating either to community spread or imported cases.  Even as no new cases are confirmed, there are sixty-six cases still under investigation so we are not yet out of the woods.  Since the start of the outbreak, there have been eighteen confirmations including two deaths. The latest information from M.O.H. shows that to date seven hundred and seventy-two tests have been done of which eighteen are positive. Its latest infographic shows that nine of the positive cases are males and the remaining nine are women.   If this trend continues, the government may be looking at changes in the state of emergency that expires at the end of this month.  A number of countries opt for a gradual easing of restrictions. Here, the government will have to go to the National Assembly if it intends to make changes to the State of Emergency.
