Grenada has recorded its 7th case of the coronavirus.
The government (COVID-19) there has urged the population to continue to follow the guidelines outlined by health officials in a bid to stop the spread of the virus that has killed more than 18,000 people worldwide.
Health Minister Nickolas Steele told a news conference that among the six cases, are people who came in some form of contact with the island’s first recorded case. The ages of the one man and five women are between 50 and 80 years-old.
Minister Steele said the six new patients are now in isolation and being monitored by health officials.
“The ministry continues with aggressive contact tracing in an effort to ascertain and mitigate further spread of the virus,” he said.
He said that patient zero, who was hospitalized earlier this week, “is now again stable and her symptoms are back to being mild to moderate”.
