Hospitals across Western Jamaica are reporting a decrease in the number of Covid-19 admissions since the onset of the third wave in August.

The Western Regional Health Authority disclosed that the four major hospitals in the county of Cornwall, had seen an increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations.

However, Clinical Coordinator, Dr. Delroy Fray, told our News Center that up to last Friday, they’d noticed a significant decline in Covid 19 cases.

As a result, Dr. Fray says Covid-19 admissions have become more manageable for health workers in the western facilities.

However, he noted that admissions of patients with gunshot wounds have seen a steady increase.

Dr. Fray asserted that despite the decline in numbers, he’s urging people to not become complacent.

He says the prospect of a fourth wave in the upcoming Christmas season is still possible.
