We are putting together the means to monitor COVID-19 in our region. We will filter information from various sources worldwide and share what we believe to be informative to dispel some of the “fake news”.
In addition, Eckler Ltd. and other firms have agreed to share their reports on COVID-19 with the CAA. These will be shared here.
Here is the current situation in the Caribbean:
|Country||Total Cases||Infected||Deaths||Recovered||Date of 1st reported case|
|Trinidad & Tobago||114||86||8||20||12th March|
Jamaica has had an increase of 52 cases over the last 2 days. These have been mostly attributed to a single call centre. As a result, the entire parish of St. Catherine is on lockdown for 7 days. Testing is now at 90 per day to increase to 150 per day by end of the week.
Many of the cases in Trinidad were persons from a cruise.
These two experiences stress the need for social distancing and sanitisation of our spaces.
Testing continues to be a challenge for the region. China has been recalling testing kits deemed faulty and the United States has, in some cases, blocked the export of personal protective equipment, citing their Defense Production Act.
Any escalation of cases would seriously impact our already strained medical facilities and staff.
We are putting together a history of measures taken and would share that soon.
