There Are Now 505 Confirmed Cases Of The Covid19 Coronavirus In Jamaica
The first case of Coronavirus in Jamaica, COVID-19, was confirmed as of March 10, 2020 as a result of overseas travelers coming into the country. There are a lot of misinformation circulating about the virus and we can only turn our attentions to reputable sources, such as The World Health Organization, The Ministry of Health and Wellness Jamaica to get updated and accurate information and tips about the virus.
Since that first case a lot of more cases has been confirmed and we can only imagine how many more will arise and what the necessary measures will be to assist with trying to contain the virus as well as restrict movement as much as possible when necessary.
So far we have seen lock downs of parishes, areas in parishes and curfew times being imposed as a measure to help contain the spread. We will try to give you as much Coronavirus In Jamaica Updates as best as possible as we gather the information and try to get it in front of you in a manner that is easily accessible anywhere.
