(Barbados Today) On the day Barbados soared passed 10,000 coronavirus infections recorded here since the pandemic began in March 2020, COVID-19 Public Advisor David Ellis warned “a high degree of indiscipline” is helping to drive community spread of the virus.
The concern was voiced as a 36-year-old unvaccinated man became the 87th person to die from the viral illness, as a wave of infections attributed to the highly contagious Delta variant breached record limits.
He spent 19 days in primary isolation at Harrison Point. He also had underlying medical conditions.
September notched a record 3,506 cases, five times higher than the 689 cases in August.
For the first four days of October, there were 913 cases.
