This has sent the number of recorded cases from the previous 641 to 834.
“This is after some 57,000 samples have already been successfully tested as at April 15th 2020. In the first batch of this backlog, an additional 198 have been found to be positive,” the Health Service posted on its website Saturday, April 18, 2020.
