St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN) — In less than ten days, 19 cases of the coronavirus disease have been reported in St. Kitts and Nevis, the most active cases ever recorded in the small twin-island nation since March 23 to 30, 2020, when seven cases were reported.
On May 19, 2021, the Federation reported its second local case of the deadly virus which resulted from a housekeeper at the Marriott Resort (St. Kitts) coming into contact with a guest who later tested positive for the virus.
WINN understands that teachers and students from the Seventh Day Adventist Primary School, Washington Archibald High School, Charles E. Mills Secondary School, Basseterre High School, and the Tyrell Williams Primary School have been tested for the coronavirus and have been asked to self-quarantine.
Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Hazel Laws speaking at the May 26 NEOC media briefing provided this update.
“We have identified three additional confirmed cases of Covid-19. So at present, we now have a total of 64 confirmed cases of Covid-19.”
There are 50 cases on St. Kitts and 14 cases for Nevis; 45 cases have fully recovered and no reported deaths.
