Jamaica has another confirmed case of the COVID-19 or coronavirus. This pushes the total number of cases to 13, and Health Minister Dr. Christopher Tufton said the latest person is in Bull Bay and they are linked to the first patient who came to Jamaica from the United Kingdom and was staying in Bull Bay.

At a press conference at Jamaica House on Tuesday, the health Minister said this further justifies why it was right to make the decision to declare Seven and Eight Miles in Bull Bay, a quarantine area earlier.

Tufton also said, 26 people were in isolation currently, 27 in quarantine in government facilities and 52 were in-home quarantine.

The Permanent Secretary in the Health Ministry Dunstan Bryan said there were “troubling signs” of people being denied services, by taxi operators for example, on the basis that they are suspected to have COVID19.  He has discouraged the discrimination.

Persons are being asked to call 888-ONE-LOVE if they have been, close to an infected person and believe they have the symptoms that are caused by the virus.
