Dr. Ian Arra, Medical Officer of Health, says "What is most reassuring is that about half of the new cases were previously identified as close contacts. As such, they have been in isolation during the past week prior to being identified as a positive case. Having already been in isolation means there will be no secondary transmission from these cases to others. Also, almost all the new people identified have been very accommodating in providing complete and detailed information on where they have been and whom they contacted. That information further ensures our Case and Contact management team is better able to further minimize the risk of any additional transmission from these cases.”
