The first cluster surrounded the headquarters of the National Assistance Board (NAB) and this time five persons from one Bridgetown church have tested positive for the disease over a course of days.
Despite zero new cases for the past three consecutive days, today Barbados has recorded two new cases and one patient is connected to the church in question.
Two women, ages 57 years old and 56 years old, are the latest COVID-19 positive patients in Barbados, bringing the number of confirmed cases to 92.
The 56-year-old is the fifth member of the Bridgetown church to test positive.
The Ministry of Health and Wellness said today (May 23) that it had now completed the testing of 30 people whose names were supplied by the church as members. All of the others tested negative. It revealed that while the church had originally supplied a list of 28 members, that list was recently upgraded to add two others.
