Signals of decline in the current wave of infection

The Ministry of Health and Wellness has released this week's Public Health Spotlight on communicable and non-communicable diseases. This week's publication covers data on COVID-19 for Epi. Week 22, monkeypox and the arrival of a new epidemiologist. 

The Ministry of Health and Wellness welcomes Epidemiologist Rachel Corbett, who recently arrived from the UK. Rachel will be supporting the monitoring and reporting of infectious diseases in the Cayman Islands, and is working here for the next 6 months.

Rachel has previously studied at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and worked as an Epidemiologist in the UK for over 6 years. She has experience at the local, national and international level.

During the pandemic, Rachel led the International Travel Risk Assessment team within the UK COVID-19 Incident Response to assess the risk of COVID-19 travellers faced when travelling abroad to any country in the world and inform government policy.
