Covid-19: Towards an improvement in the health situation?


The epidemic dynamics on Saint-Martin, and to a lesser extent on Saint Barthélemy, tends to stabilize, but remains at high levels, putting strong pressure on the territory's health professionals, specifies the Regional Health Agency in its press release published yesterday.

The latest ARS health bulletin reports 1580 new cases of Covid-19 recorded in the territory, compared to 2 the previous week. The number of cumulative cases of coronavirus confirmed on the territory since the start of the health crisis is 561.

Note that since Monday, 271 new cases have been recorded out of 1908 analyzes carried out.

Otherwise, as of January 19, 20 confirmed Covid-19 patients are being cared for at the Louis-Constant Fleming hospital center. A cluster is currently being investigated in Saint-Martin.


Epidemiological indicators confirm an improvement in the situation to levels that remain high, however.

According to SI-DEP ARS data, the incidence rate is down but remains at a very worrying level at 4/420.1 inhabitants, compared to 100/000 from January 7 to 164.4.

The weekly positivity rate is down, with a rate of 21.6% against 27.9% the previous week. _AF
