Active Covid-19 cases up three to 62
The number of active Covid-19 cases rose by three to 62 yesterday after 11 new cases were logged.
There are six people in hospital, one in intensive care, unchanged from last Friday’s update.
Health officials said eight people had recovered from the virus.
The 11 new infections were among 5,196 tests carried out last Thursday, Friday and Saturday – a positivity rate of 0.2 per cent.
One of the new cases is classified as imported with a history of travel in the previous 14 days.
A further eight of the new cases are classified as local transmission, while two are under investigation.
Kim Wilson, the health minister, repeated earlier warnings against complacency.
She highlighted a growing number of reports of people ignoring Covid-19 public health guidelines – even when they knew they were infected with the coronavirus.
Ms Wilson said: “I must stress the need for everyone to be more responsible in their actions.
“We are getting more and more reports about people being non-compliant with public health guidance.
“People are symptomatic and doing activities anyway.”
She added: “They are going out in public, working, enjoying recreational activities and children are going to school with symptoms.
“Our contact tracers are speaking to people who tested positive for the coronavirus and they are not reporting close contacts and not co-operating with the contact tracing process.
“Subsequently, people that they were in close contact with are testing positive and displaying symptoms.
“This type of irresponsible behaviour will lead to more community spread.”
