The Ministry of Health statistics indicate that there is now a rise in the rolling average number of COVID cases.
The Ministry yesterday reported an additional 305 COVID-19 cases and nine deaths, meaning there have been 2,634 cases and 98 deaths within just the first 9 days of November.
Yesterday’s cases brought the seven-day rolling average up to 363, meaning an average of 363 cases were recorded daily since last Tuesday.
The last time the country faced a seven-day rolling average near this current rate, Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley called the State of Emergency.
However the Government will face a conundrum as to how to deal with this situation of rising cases given that Dr Rowley has already indicated that they will not seek an extension to the State of Emergency.
This is probably because it will require Opposition support which the Government does not appear to be able to achieve at this time.
