Coronavirus: Active Cases Up To Double Figures

Four more cases of coronavirus have been detected in Jersey, taking the number of active cases to 11.

Eight have come through either the airport or harbour - with two more arrivals diagnoses since Monday. 

One was found through workforce screening, another person was diagnosed following 'admission screening' and one was confirmed to have Covid-19 through contact tracing.

Two of them have symptoms. All of them, along with close contacts, are isolating in the community. No-one is being treated for Covid-19 in hospital.

Nearly 30,000 passengers into Jersey have now been tested for the virus.

A new lab has arrived on-island to quicken the testing turnaround time and get results back at a much faster rate.

The current average turnaround time is 31 hours and the government says the lab should bring the average down to within 12 hours.

It's due to become operational next month.
