Despite only 40% of COVID-19 patients needing to be hospitalised, the parallel health care system’s Intensive Care Units are becoming overburdened.
This from Principal Medical Officer, Dr. Maryam Abdool-Richards.
Dr. Abdool-Richards reminds that cases of the delta variant are being seen at the community level. This, she adds, is causing more children to contract the virus.
Meanwhile Geographic Information Systems Officer, Roshan Seeramsingh, says Counties Victoria and St. George remain the areas in the country which are seeing the highest number of COVID-19 cases.
