As at 1:38 pm Greenwich Meridian Time (GMT) on Monday, June 8, health authorities across the region have confirmed a total of 33,226 cases.

Out of the Caribbean caseload, 16,880 cases (or nearly 51 per cent) have been officially closed, with patients either recovering outright (15,900 recoveries) or died from coronavirus-related complications (981 deaths to date).

There now seven Caribbean territories without active coronavirus cases at this time, namely: Turks and Caicos Islands, British Virgin Islands, Aruba, St Kitts, Monserrat, Anguilla, and Saint-Barthélemy.
