The twin-island republic of Trinidad and Tobago, with the release of its latest novel coronavirus (COVID-19) patient, is reporting no further active cases of the disease for the second time in less than a month.

Trinidad first celebrated its zero active case threshold in late May and joins seven other Caribbean territories: Turks and Caicos Islands, British Virgin Islands, Aruba, St Kitts, Monserrat, Anguilla, and Saint-Barthélemy.

As at 1:55 pm Greenwich Meridian Time (GMT) on Tuesday, June 9, regional health authorities have confirmed a combined total of 34,198 cases of COVID-19 in the Caribbean.

Some 16,135 patients have recovered from the coronavirus, a number which could be far greater across the region, owing to unavailable data from Puerto Rico. Another 986 persons have died.
