Key points

In the Cayman Islands COVID-19 hospitalisations have increased slightly, however the number of people admitted remains in line with recent months. There were 17 COVID-19 hospital admissions during November, which has increased from 10 admissions in October.

To note, this includes patients admitted for other reasons and detected as positive for COVID-19 on screening. There has been no increase in the number of patients admitted to ICU and no COVID-19 deaths were reported in November. During the winter months, it isanticipated that COV ID-19 transmission in the community will increase alongside other respiratory infections. However, as policy and public behaviour surrounding testing has changed since earlier in the year we will not see the full extent of this in the number of cases detected.

Nearly 1,000 doses of the Autumn COVID-19 booster have been administered, with the highest uptake among 50-69 year olds. We strongly recommend that all those who are eligible receive their Autumn booster for COVID-19 and concurrently receive the influenza vaccine.
