Minister for Health & Wellness

COVID - 19 10 Oct, 2022 Follow News

Hon. Sabrina Turner

The Public Health Spotlight originated from the need to keep our population informed with more in-depth epidemiological data relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.

As we move towards living safely and responsibly with COVID-19, this publication will grow and adapt to provide relevant public health information to the public and the media on a monthly basis.

As the Ministry of Health and Wellness (MHW) continues to make strides to collect and analyse data that will help to inform funding decisions, educational campaigns, programming and services, our Epidemiology Corner will expand to include more data on both communicable and non-communicable diseases.

Existing best practices in research, such as the biennial National Drug Council’s Cayman Islands Student Drug Use Survey (CISDUS), will also be highlighted and shared in future to help inform readers about work that is already being undertaken by the MHW’s departments and SAGCs .

This month’s issue will highlight the return of the flu, and provide insight on what that means while we continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. Additional information on the forthcoming COVID-19 fall booster programme will be included, along with the monthly COVID-19 statistics for September.

Our hope is that this publication will continue to be informative and will help our residents feel better equipped in making decisions about their own health and wellness.
