For a third straight week, there were no new deaths from COVID-19 in Tobago—and the island’s death toll from the disease remains at 287, as at Saturday, December 3.
That’s according to the latest weekly update from the Division of Health, Wellness and Social Protection, in the Tobago House of Assembly (THA), covering the period Sunday 27 November to Saturday 3 December 2022.
The most recent COVID-19-related death was reported during the week of 6-12 November 2022. At that time, the deceased was said to be an unvaccinated person. That death was the first reported in three weeks.
The THA Health Division report notes five more people tested positive for COVID-19 in Tobago, last week. The number of active infections was seven, as at Saturday, December 3. This represents slight drop from the previous week (November 20-26, 2022), at which time there were 10 active cases.
In addition, the Health Division confirms that two patients—one fully vaccinated and the other unvaccinated against COVID-19—were hospitalised last week in Tobago.
