Months into the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) fight, Caribbean countries continue to press ahead despite a recent resurgence in new cases.

As at 1:57 pm Greenwich Meridian Time (GMT) on Thursday, June 25, respective health authorities across the region have collectively confirmed 43,693 cases of COVID-19.

Across the 32 affected countries and territories, ten have managed to bring their active caseload to zero: Dominica, Sint Maarten, St Lucia, Grenada, British Virgin Islands, Aruba, St Kitts and Nevis, Monserrat, Anguilla, and Saint-Barthélemy.

For a regional perspective, active cases just outnumber their closed coronavirus counterparts, owing to insufficient data from Puerto Rico on its recoveries.

Notwithstanding, some 22,923 COVID-19 cases have since been closed as patients have either overcome the infectious disease (21,727 recoveries to date) or have died due to complications (1,195 deaths).
