Georgetown, Jul 2 (Prensa Latina) The number of recoveries from Covid-19 in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) rose on Thursday to 2,620.
 
Despite the total of 8,360 Covid-19 cases, the regional bloc shows an effective response to the pandemic, since Haiti currently accumulates the majority of active cases with 4,939 Covid-19 patients out of the 5,555 afflict ined by SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.

In the past week, CARICOM nations have increased their recoveries by over 1,000 and Barbados joined the group of countries without active cases to advance the gradual reopening of their economies.

According to the Caricom Today website, Haiti is the epicenter of the pandemic in the Caribbean area, followed by Suriname (280), Jamaica (128) and Guyana (119) as the nations with the highest number of active cases.

The Bahamas and Bermuda have reduced active patients to eight and two in the past few days, respectively; meanwhile, Antigua and Barbuda, Turks and Caicos Islands and Trinidad and Tobago show 40, 16 and nine cases carrying the novel coronavirus, respectively.

Anguilla, Virgin Islands, Dominica, Granada, Monserrat, Saint Lucia, Saint Kitts and Nevis, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, are advancing with a steadfast step forward the restoration of the new normality in their countries.

In order to advance in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, CARICOM member States welcomed access to the African Medical Supplies Platform, which allows purchasing means of protection, diagnostic devices and clinical management with greater profitability and transparency.
