COVID Patient #23 Identified

Tonight we can confirm COVID-19 patient number twenty-three. According to the Officer of Director of Health Services, this latest case is one of the repatriates from Friday’s flight.  A post on the Office of Director of Health Services’ Facebook account says, given that we had an arrival with forty plus persons this past Friday, samples were pooled and processed today, this is outside of our established testing days (Tuesdays and Fridays). A total of forty-five samples were processed today and it is among those tests that the latest COVID-19 case was confirmed. The update online says, “The patient is identified as a young female who arrived on the flight on Friday, she is asymptomatic with no treatment required. She went into immediate quarantine upon arrival as part of the established protocol.” We’ll have more in Tuesday’s newscast.
