98 new Covid-19 cases identified in Northern Marianas Islands; largest single day total

THE Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. and the CNMI Covid-19 Task Force on Tuesday announced that 98 new positive Covid-19 cases had been identified during a single day of community screening — the largest recorded in CNMI history.

These new cases are in addition to the 10 new cases that CHCC reported on the evening of Monday, Nov. 22.

Pacific Island Health Officers Association regional communicable disease epidemiologist Stephanie Kern-Allely, MPH, said of these 98 new cases, 82 were identified through community-based Covid-19 testing or CBT utilized by a number of different employers, community groups, and general community members.

“Every single one of those CBT cases we identified has a linkage to another case,” she added.

Of the 82 new cases identified through CBT, she said 63 were from a large congregated living situation, in addition to 28 other cases that were previously identified as part of the larger cluster.
