53 new COVID-19 cases, 51 recoveries recorded in Jamaica

With the numbers seeming as if they are trending downwards, Jamaica recorded 53 new COVID-19 cases on Monday.

The additional cases bring the country’s tally to 8,374. There were 14 cases in St James while Kingston and St Andrew had nine. St Mary and St Ann had eight and seven cases, respectively.

One positive sign is that there were 51 recoveries, bringing that tally to 4,002.

Sadly, there was one death. The deceased is an 85-year-old male from St Ann. This means that Jamaica has now recorded 174 fatalities linked to the virus since it was first detected in the country in March.
