The national 7-day average COVID-19 daily test positivity is 44.6%.

This means 44.6% of the COVID-19 tests conducted by the Health Ministry return a positive result.

The Health Ministry says the high positivity rate is an indication of widespread community transmission.

There are 1,851 active COVID-19 cases based on the latest update by the Health Ministry but please not that this does not include the Rapid Antigen Tests done by people at home or those that self-isolate and take necessary action based entirely on their symptoms.

146 new cases COVID-19 have been recorded by the Health Ministry since Wednesday.

102 of these new cases were recorded on Thursday and 44 new cases in the last 24 hours ending at 8am yesterday.

Of the 146 cases recorded, 86 cases were in the Central Division; 54 cases in the Western Division, 6 cases in the Northern Division, and nil cases in the Eastern Division.
