Preliminary results have indicated five additional coronavirus cases in Jamaica.
This would move to 15, the number of cases here.
In a statement, the Health Ministry said two of the cases are linked to a patient who traveled from the United Kingdom.
- The third patient has a travel history to Trinidad and Tobago and was on the same flight as a confirmed case.
- The fourth patient is an American child who traveled through Miami.
- The third and fourth patients are from western Jamaica.
- The fifth case is a Kingston patient with no travel history, but who recently hosted visitors from the United Kingdom.
In the meantime, the Health Ministry says two other tests returned negative results.
They involve a patient in isolation at the Mandeville Regional Hospital and another at the St Ann's Bay Hospital.
The ministry says it is awaiting the confirmatory results of these tests.
