An analysis of the positive COVID-19 cases revealed that 52 percent of men are affected while women account for 48 percent.

This is according to Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Shamdeo Persuad. He also added that persons between the ages of 20-29 are recorded as the age group with the highest number of positive cases.

“The age groups with the most cases are the 20-29, 30-39 and 40-49; in essence we are talking about the adults. Of that groups the 20-29 has the highest number,” the CMO explained.
