Death Toll Now at 21, Cases Continue to Fall

Another unvaccinated patient with severe comorbidities has died during Epidemiological Week, or Epi. Week 9 (27 February - 5 March) according to the COVID-19 situational report released tonight (Wednesday 9 March).

Additionally, there were two other deaths that have been retroactively ruled as COVID related. This brings the total number of COVID-19 related deaths to 21 since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020. Delays in classification and reporting of deaths are due to a combination of factors, including waiting for autopsy and home deaths.

During Epi. Week 9, there were 236 new cases of COVID-19 reported by Public Health. This was 147 cases less than were reported in the previous Epi. Week (20 -26 February).

Officials noted that 1,429 tests were conducted in Epi.Week 9 compared to 2,581 tests in Epi.Week 8 and 3,098 tests in Epi.Week 7.

During Epi. Week 9, there were 17 hospital inpatients going through the two main hospitals in the Cayman Islands (Health Services Authority and Health City Cayman Islands).
