(CNS): Public Health officials expect the patient who had been admitted to the ICU suffering serious symptoms of COVID-19 to be released from the hospital today. Chief Medical Officer Dr John Lee said the traveller was in a stable condition, but no other details about the patient have been released, such as gender, age, whether they have existing conditions, where the patient had arrived from, or whether or not they were infected with the UK variant.

Meanwhile, just one traveller tested positive for COVID-19 over the holiday weekend, but with a number people recovering, the number of active cases fell to just 26, with four people, included the individual in the hospital, suffering symptoms. There are currently 810 people in home isolation or government quarantine.

No vaccination shots were administered over the holiday weekend, so just 76 people were added to the tally on Tuesday, bringing the number of people who have received their first shots to 6,717.

    Why on earth was the hospitalised person who is understood to be a visitor allowed in? how come no media outlet want to take this issue to task?

      Presumably they didn’t plan on being sick? How do you even know they are a visitor?

      Are mad or something? What are you talking about?

      They were called a “traveller”, not visitor. Traveller being the accepted nomenclature for people arriving in the Cayman Islands. We presume they are a person who has a vetted reason for being here (returning resident, Caymanian, people with property here).

      I share your concern, given the recent story of a traveller who was errantly allowed to quarantine at a residence rather than the hotel.

    Next up, MPs motion a name change for Hospital Road, they want to call it “Recovery Road”.
