Three of the 10 Palms Geriatric Home residents, who tested positive for COVID-19, have since recovered and will soon be integrated with the other residents at the institution.

The remaining seven residents are being monitored in accordance with the control measures implemented by the Ministry of Health. All positive cases are quarantined in a separate ward.

The first case at the Palms was recorded on May 5 and due to rigorous screening of residents and staff, there has been no new cases since May 23.

The Home, which falls under the purview of the Social Protection Ministry, provides 24 hour nursing care for elderly residents.
