A four-year-old child is among the country’s latest six COVID-19 patients, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Rhonda Sealey-Thomas said.

Of the six recent cases, five are females while the other is a male.

They range in age from four years old to 57 years, Sealey-Thomas revealed Sunday evening.

“Five of them were identified from contact from a case we had identified from before and the other one is a case that is not linked to that index case from our previous laboratory investigation,” the CMO said.

Sealey-Thomas said none of the cases could be classified as imported, noting that, “Our investigation so far has identified that these six cases are persons who live in Antigua and Barbuda with no travel history so far.”

  1. Just say it’s community spread. All the English gymnastics leads back to one conclusion. Community spread is happening and it will continue from time to time. Be straightforward with the people. Keep the wording simple and to the point. Use dialect if you haffu. Your message might come across stronger!

    • I don’t think it matters if it’s community spread or imported. Let’s all do our part and not become complacent. Let’s all be our brother’s keeper and look out for one another.

      Be safe everyone.
