(CNS): Two travellers, who are both asymptomatic, have tested positive for COVID-19. Chief Medical Officer Dr John Lee said the cases were reported in a batch of 455 test samples processed since Friday, but the rest of which were negative. These two individuals will remain in isolation until they are clear of the virus. There are currently just nine active COVID-19 cases from the 242 positives recorded here since March.

Only one person, who has been ill for several weeks and has been at the hospital on a ventilator, remains symptomatic. The other eight people are currently free of symptoms relating to the virus.

The total number of people in isolation at present at either a government facility or in their homes is now 647 after almost 200 people completed their two-week quarantine over the weekend.

    So the quarantine is working as advertised. If you do it intelligently then it will allow Caymans economy to return to functionality. If you are not very intelligent then you will not trust this mostly because you don’t trust anything you don’t understand. We feel your pain and confusion. Stay calm. You are not going to die of Covid. Much more likely a car accident, heart attack, or Cancer.

        It was in the eyes of the government and subsequently the media.
        The UK press is bloody rabid about COVID-19.
        They actively quench dissenting voices.
        This whole operation has been executed under cover of darkness.
        Darkness of soul.

      That’s why CNN has just come out with “Why you can test negative but still be infected and contagious.” Must be nice to have viewers who question nothing.

    I’d tell you a COVID joke but there’s a 99.696% chance you won’t get it.

    Can they at least tell us which countries these infected people are coming from? Are we going to wait until we miss one case and cause us to have to go into lockdown again?

    Maybe we will see them slow down now if they stop the BA flights.

        9.11am Quite right – the 9 (so far) thumbs down show that ignorance amongst a certain sector of our population is still rife.

          We all know the only reason people are up in arms because of the BA flight is because the Governor passing same sex civil unions. Nothing was said about the USA because you all don’t want to interfere with your shopping trips to Miami.
