Martinique predicts surge in coronavirus cases as number jumps to 81

The number of people infected with the coronavirus (COVID)-19) in Martinique has rocketed to 81.

It was reported on Thursday that in 24 hours, the medical services in Martinique registered 15 additional patients. They are hospitalized at the CHUM (Center Hospitalier Universitaire de Martinique, specifically at the Pierre Zobda Quitman hospital in Fort-de-France). Among these 15 people, 12 are in intensive care and ten of them are incubated.

Infectious disease specialists say that by the end of March, beginning of April, the number of patients will increase significantly.

Since the start of the health crisis two of the COVID-19 patients in Martinique have been healed and one person has died.

Health officials have reminded Martiniquan citizens of the importance of respecting the confinement rules.

There are now 84 cases of COVID-19 in Guadeloupe. Among the confirmed cases, 24 patients are hospitalized at the CHU Pointe-à-Pitre / Abymes (9 patients in intensive care including a patient from Saint-Martin, 15 in the service of infectious and tropical diseases) and 4 at the Center Hospitalier de Basse-Terre.

    Those Covidiots and Philosophers especially Linton, with his pathetic diabolical criticisms of Prime minister Skerrit for not locking down early Martinique and Guadeloupe did lockdown early but still have a high amount of Covid-19 Virus did that stop the Virus?? No it didn’t, in my opinion stupidity such as Lennox Linton, and his followers Francisco, Matthew Peltier, Viewsexpressed are all enemies of Dominica spreading propaganda and now Covid-19 as for Francisco he always profess to be a medical expert instead of making an idiot off yourself like Linton get up and help your fellow Americans Mr big mouth.

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 11 Thumb down 15

      Francisco, Francisco here is another call from someone else. Francisco, Francisco. DA is in the world. DA is not in Mars. Why politicize everything? Why don’t u guys get serious, ask for a sound mind. This is not about you & those who hate for no reason at all. Emancipate yourselves from hatred slave mentality. Yes only big mouth. Think before u talk. U Francisco know about the WHO site & I am sure you are reading but why would you politicize this? Corona virus is all over. Do not use this pandemic to try to say things about the PM. But you know all those things is to get him stronger. I do not believe how you guys can be so selfish & so inconsiderate. People are watching. Your actions speaks . Do u guys care about anyone? 2 speak that way in world wide pandemic? Lord have mercy on us. Complaining, blaming, no fear of the Creater, disrespecting persons who do not share their views to hate PM etc. Fellas grow up & take ownership. Are u blind to what is happennig…

    It’s shameful, detestable and pathetic to spread this vicious rumors about the St. Joseph village. The people who are using the COVID 19 epidemic to further their failings political careers, you can never never destroy the St. Joseph population. Be strong my people and pray for the rumor mongers.
