105 new cases last week, 5 deaths in 14 days

MARIGOT: For the period from 24 to 30 May, 105 new cases of Covid-19 were recorded in Saint Martin, “a very high figure again”, notes the Regional Health Agency, even if the number of contaminations has decreased compared to the week before (123 cases).

It should be noted that since May 31, already 47 cases of Covid have been recorded.  A cluster has also been recorded in a social housing and integration establishment, with 7 cases.

Over the last two weeks, 7 medical evacuations of Covid positive patients have been carried out to Guadeloupe, against only 2 since the beginning of the year. Over the last two weeks 5 deaths were reported. Among them, none was vaccinated as well as none of the hospitalized persons. This brings to 18 the number of St. Martiners  who have died since March 2020 as a result of Covid-19.

The emergence of severe forms of Covid, the large number of deaths in a short period of time and the risk of saturation of our hospital system, should remind us that we are in a pivotal period in the fight against this virus.
