Additionally there have been four confirmed cases of mother to child transmission of COVID-19.
Dr Sirjusingh also stated that with a total of seven maternal deaths for 2021, the country’s Sustainable Development Goals Target which provides for less than 30 deaths per 100,000 live births or a maximum of four deaths annually has been surpassed.
