Jamaican PM tells population not to panic despite sharp rise in Covid numbers

In Jamaica – PRIME Minister Andrew Holness has urged Jamaicans not to panic despite the sharp spike in the COVID-19 numbers in recent days.
Up to Tuesday the island had recorded 68,482 cases of the virus with 1,549 deaths and 18,103 active cases.
But Holness, in a media briefing on Wednesday, said there was no need for Jamaicans to panic as the Government is doing its best to deal with the present challenge.
Following a record 929 new cases on Saturday, the island recorded 739 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday, 729 on Monday, and 351 on Tuesday, prompting the Government to extend the no-movement days that have been in place across the island over the past two weeks.
