Health practitioners across the Caribbean renew efforts to eradicate the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic—and the region continues to fight.

As at 3:10 pm Greenwich Meridian Time (GMT) on Wednesday, June 3, countries and territories have confirmed some 29,464 cases. Eight countries have recorded new cases, while the other 24 territories have either not seen new infections or have brought their active cases to zero.

Of the regional caseload, 15,788 cases (or roughly 53.5 per cent) have been closed by patients who have completely overcome COVID-19 (14,848 recoveries to date, barring unavailable date from Puerto Rico).
