St. Kitts & Nevis records 22 more cases of COVID-19 bringing number of active cases to 145

This evening, Monday June 14, 2021, I wish to update you on the present COVID-19 situation.
Over this past weekend we have recorded twenty-two (22) additional cases. These new cases are
nationals. The individuals are in isolation and are being monitored. These cases bring the total
number of COVID-19 confirmed cases to 209 with 195 cases for St. Kitts and 14 cases for
Nevis. Please note that 64 cases have fully recovered with zero deaths. There are now one
hundred forty –five (145) active cases.

The Ministry of Health continues its robust contact tracing exercise which began on Wednesday
May 19, 2021 and we will update you as the situation unfolds. We will broaden our web of contact
tracing and testing to identify all possible contacts. The aim is to break the chains of transmission
of the COVID-19 virus and contain this cluster of cases. The Ministry of Health wishes to assure
the public that all measures are being taken to restrict the spread of coronavirus.

We urge you to adhere to the COVID-19 prevention and control measures. These include wearing
a face mask, maintaining good hand hygiene, maintaining physical distance of at least 6 feet from
others when in public places and avoiding crowds and events. These non-pharmaceutical measures
work, and we are encouraging everyone to comply with them especially at this time.

We remind you that the AstraZeneca / Oxford COVID-19 vaccine is our main tool in fighting this
virus and we urge you to come forward and get vaccinated. By getting vaccinated you are not only
protecting yourself but those who cannot be vaccinated such as all of our school children.

We continue to encourage persons to empower themselves with the facts about the benefits of the
AstraZeneca Oxford Vaccine and take advantage of this opportunity to be vaccinated. You can
access the COVID-19 vaccine at any health center in St. Kitts during this week Monday to Friday
between the hours of 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm and any health center in Nevis during this week between
the hours of 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

Let us work together to maintain and protect the health and wellbeing of the people of the
Federation.
