Barbados has recorded just over 1 800 new COVID-19 cases over the last eight days, but there are no plans to shut down the country or put a curfew in place.
Minister of Health and Wellness Ian Gooding-Edghill again stated Barbadians would have to learn to live with COVID-19, and dealing with these periodic spikes in cases was part of the process.
He was speaking on Tuesday evening during a media conference which included Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Dr Anton Best; Head of Isolation Facilities, The Most Honourable Dr Corey Best; and Head of Home Isolation, Dr Adanna Grandison.
“As a responsible ministry, we will continue to monitor the scientific data and make the appropriate interventions to manage this public health situation,” the Minister said. “We are not going to reverse any of the measures that we have implemented because there is no need to, and therefore, no curfews and no lockdowns are necessary.”
