The Government of the Falkland Islands reported on Tuesday that another six positive cases of COVID 19 cases have been identified, following the processing of a large batch of test results that were sent to UK.
All the individuals tested positive are located at the Mount Pleasant Complex.
This means that the Falklands have now received a total of 11 positive COVID-19 results.
These individuals are being isolated at MPC in line with their normal public health measures.
One of the positive individuals continues to receive care at KEMH while a second positive patient was discharged from the hospital last week.
118 swabs were sent on the South Atlantic Airbridge at the weekend, for processing at a specialist laboratory. In total, 255 samples have been processed to date in the UK.
Since all cases are individuals at MPA, this means there are no Falklands residents so far that have tested positive to the virus.
