Last week’s figures are not encouraging.

The number of new infections is rising again. While the trend of new Covid-positive cases was gradually decreasing, last week saw a jump in infections. 87 more people contracted Covid between 17 and 23 October.

Four new people were admitted to the Princess Grace Hospital (CHPG). As a result, 13 patients are currently in hospital and, sadly, the virus caused the death of a 78-year-old resident on 22 October.
