Seven­teen persons have report­edly recovered from COVID-19.

Only one person has test­ed positive for COVID-19, thus reducing the number of active cases to 74. The total number of confirmed cases is now 645.

The Collective Prevention Services (CPS) is monitor­ing 70 persons in home isolation. Currently, there are 171 persons in quaran­tine. Three patients remain hospitalised at St. Maarten Medical Center (SMMC) and one patient is currently isolated and being moni­tored. The total number of deaths due to COVID-19 remains at 22.

According to Minister of Public Health, Social De­velopment and Labour VSA Richard Panneflek, the ministry has retrospec­tively received negative re­sults from the lab fora total of 702 persons who have been tested.
