The national 7-day rolling average of cases as of 20th November is 6 daily cases.

The Central Division cases constitute 66% of the cumulative total cases nationally, with the Western division making up 28%, 4% in the Northern Division, and 2% in the Eastern Division.

Currently, the Ministry of Health do not have any admissions as a direct cause of COVID-19.

However, eighteen admissions have tested as covid positive but are admitted for other diseases.

Patients presented to the hospital are tested before admission therefore, a high number of people who are admitted for non-covid health conditions, test positive for COVID-19 due to the current level of transmission in the community.

Consistent with the experience in other countries that have high vaccination rates the Ministry of Health anticipate a minimal increase in hospital admissions for COVID-19 disease despite increasing case numbers
