Health Ministry missed reporting one COVID-19 death, total now at 52


The Ministry of Health has reported that its data failed to include a person who died from COVID-19 in early August and as such the overall death toll is now 52.

“Our list did not include a COVID-related death reported early August. We have therefore adjusted our master sheet and it now reflects the total of 49 up to the end of September 10. With the three deaths we reported on September 10, the number of COVID-19 deaths is now 52,” the Ministry stated in a press release Friday.

Meanwhile, 13 new COVID-19 cases were recorded from 133 tests done. There are 13 persons in the COVID-19 Intensive Care Unit while there are a total of 554 active cases in isolation: 46 in institutional isolation and 508 in home isolation.

One new case was reported in Region One, seven in Region Four and four in Region Nine.

So far, a total of 1144 persons have recovered and there are 92 persons on institutional quarantine; the number of persons tested so far is 10,592.
