He wished the family strength during their time of bereavement.

Eight persons tested positive for COVID-19 and four persons have, bringing the number of active cases to 82. The total number of confirmed cases is now 2,479.

Collective Prevention Services (CPS) is monitoring 77 persons in home isolation. Five patients are hospitalised at St. Maarten Medical Center. The total number of deaths due to COVID-19 has increased to 29.

The number of persons recovered since the first case surfaced on St. Maarten has increased to 2,368. There are 113 persons in quarantine based on contact tracing investigations carried out by CPS.
