COVID-19 - NOTABLE DECREASE IN THE NUMBER OF CASES IN SAINT-BARTH

After a month of July marked by a spectacular increase in the number of Covid-19 cases, Saint-Barthélemy seems to be heading towards a gradual decrease. Indeed, according to the weekly health bulletin of the Regional Health Agency unveiled this Thursday, between August 9 and 15, 67 positive diagnoses were identified. The previous week, Saint-Barth had 89.

Nevertheless, the situation remains worrying with three patients still hospitalized at the De Bruyn center and 25 at Louis-Constant-Fleming in Saint-Martin. The neighboring island recorded 251 new cases of Covid (including two additional deaths) last week and already has 79 since Monday. At the same time, in Saint-Barth, 18 positive tests were counted by the ARS in three days.

Due to the gradual improvement in the situation in Saint-Barth, the prefecture is considering relaxing the restrictive measures currently in force. Including the curfew schedule, which could be extended as early as tomorrow evening. The prefect, Serge Gouteyron, is expected to communicate on the subject in the afternoon of Thursday, August 19.
