The COVID-19 epidemic is still going strong. The Ministry of Health has confirmed that the number of people infected with the COVID-19 virus has increased. 144 more COVID-19 cases were added to the count between May 20, 2020 and June 3, 2020, increasing the total number of confirmed cases to 5,798 and 43 COVID-19-related deaths to 43. Eighty-eight (88) active cases are now being monitored by the Ministry of Health.
The Federation’s population is fully vaccinated, with 78.4 percent of adults and 18.0 percent of minors aged 12 to 17 years being fully vaccinated. When the data was broken down by island, it was discovered that 82.0 percent of adults in St. Kitts and 68.6% of adults in Nevis are completely vaccinated. In St. Kitts, 18.6% of children aged 12 to 17 are fully vaccinated, whereas in Nevis, 16.3% of children aged 12 to 17 are fully vaccinated. Fully vaccinated people account for 56.7 percent of the population. The vaccine remains the best form of protection, and many sick people who have been vaccinated show little or no symptoms.
The Federation’s CDC COVID-19 travel health notification level will rise from level two to level three effective Monday, June 6, 2022, based on the foregoing pattern, according to the Ministry of Health.
This emphasizes the fact that the COVID-19 Virus is still circulating in our islands, and we must all work together to stop it from spreading. The procedures listed below are effective in slowing the transmission of this virus. These are some of the measures:
When in public locations, people wear face masks, after engaging with other people and contacting high-touch surfaces, wash your hands. When in public areas and at occasions such as church, funerals, and other family and social gatherings, keep a safe distance from people. This is a holiday weekend with a number of social events planned. We advise patrons to be cautious and careful in safeguarding themselves from the virus and preventing its spread. Let us do everything we can as a society to avert a fifth wave of COVID-19 infections.
