Antigua has recorded another COVID-19 related death, Prime Minister Gaston Browne has announced.
PM Browne: Unfortunately, we had another COVID fatality today. A 96 year old resident, who ostensibly contracted the virus from exposure to someone who travelled from the UK recently.
We continue to warn citizens and residents about exposing themselves and relatives to anyone who is not a member of their household, especially individuals who travelled from abroad.
The last COVID fatality was as a result of exposure from an imported case at a wedding. Six family members contracted the virus with one fatality and one was critically ill.
COVID is deadly; be vigilant and conform to the protocols and health regulations to protect yourselves and loved ones.
