Key points

Internationally: The number of COVID-19 cases reported to WHO has continued to decline over the past month, however as testing globally has declined this will be an underestimate.

Local trends: In the Cayman Islands, hospitalisations have continued to decline since the summer. There were a total of 10 COVID-19 patients admitted in October 2022, a 56% decrease from the 22 admissions during September. Reported admissions includes both patients admitted due to COVID-19 morbidity and patients admitted for other health reasons who were detected to have COVID-19 on admission screening.

One COVID-19 death has been reported during October 2022. The individual had underlying co-morbidities and had received their complete primary course of the vaccine but not received any boosters.
