There were 18 new cases (4 non-residents and 14 residents) diagnosed since yesterday's numbers were released, and no patients marked "recovered", so there are now 171 active cases.

509 people were tested since yesterday, including 401 on arrival at the airport and 108 at the hospital. In total, there have been 58,799 people tested, including 33,227 at the airport.

At the hospital, there is 1 patient in the ICU and 6 patients in the "covid ward".

Counts are high this week. Noticed an Air Canada plane on the expanded runway as I drove home.
Went to airport website....think I counted 30 flights in today :shock: We know they are not full but geeze Louise!

There were apparently some problems with the numbers yesterday - the ones posted by the DVG (Aruba's CDC) didn't agree with the ones that the Prime Minister announced. The DVG numbers have since been updated. This means that yesterday's numbers are now:

17 new cases (12 residents and 5 non-residents), and 9 patients marked "recovered". Yet the number of active cases is still 171, so...math?

There were apparently 520 people tested, not 509, so that means 401 were tested at the airport and 119 at the hospital.

Finally, there are actually 9 patients in the hospital "covid ward", and no one in the covid ICU.
