Four more deaths were attributed to COVID-19 and 303 new infections were recorded across the island on Friday – the Ministry of Health & Wellness has revealed.
The tally of deaths island-wide now stands at 372 with total infections at 18,830 since the first case was confirmed in Jamaica on March 10, 2020.
The most recent persons to die are a 70 year-old woman from Clarendon, a 56 year-old man from St. Elizabeth, a 79 year-old man from the Corporate Area, and an 83 year-old man, also from the Corporate Area.
The Corporate Area (Kingston & St. Andrew) accounted for 113 of the new infections, followed by the adjoining parish of St. Catherine with 57.
42 new cases were recorded in St. Ann and 19 in Trelawny, 15 in both St. James and Manchester, and 12 in Portland, a relatively large one-day number for that eastern parish.
