#TurksandCaicos, February 24, 2021 – North Caicos has a new case, so does South Caicos as a disheartening steadiness is marked in the fight against the coronavirus despite severe restrictions including: no dine in, no hanging out at lounges, no parties and no social gatherings.
Twenty two new cases of the virus were found among 82 tests conducted by the National Public Health Laboratory.
Providenciales and Grand Turk have each added 10 patients to the positive lists.
There have been 11 recoveries, but the TCI has now surged well past two thousand cases, with 2051 infections including a recent death due to traffic accident, but where the victim was tested and found to have had the coronavirus.
The find supports the ‘hidden’ nature of the virus among the unsuspecting and asymptomatic.
Middle Caicos has seven infections, South Caicos has five; Parrot Cay is with two; North Caicos has 22; Grand Turk has 38 people infected with Covid-19 and Providenciales is with 165 cases. The national active case count is 239.
Community testing has resumed in Grand Turk and Providenciales.
At this time, 768 people are in isolation.
