September Death Spike Continues as SKN Records Twelfth COVID-19 Related Death


by Kevon Browne

St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN): September, the deadliest month so far in the COVID-19 fight.

The Federation has recorded an additional COVID-19 related death.

Twelve citizens of St. Kitts and Nevis have now succumbed to the virus.

The COVID-19 situation report from Saturday (September 25) recorded the eleventh death, and two days later, the most recent report shows 19 cases confirmed for the last 24 hours and the twelfth person to die from the virus.

September has seen a spike in deaths since the onset of the third wave of COVID-19 on St. Kitts and Nevis. In June, during the height of the second wave, we recorded three deaths in that month.

After some stringent restrictions on movement, Health officials were able to contain the second wave, which saw a near two-month decline in cases and no deaths.

Cases began to rise again in August, which started the third wave. One death was recorded that month.

September alone recorded eight deaths in the Federation.

Active cases are now just under 900 individuals, and the total case count is fast 2,000, with 1,891 cases recorded.
