Between Oct 1 and 22, a total of 50 persons have died from Covid-19 in Barbados, or an average of 2.2 deaths per day.
Between October 18 and 22, there were 9 deaths (according to dashboard data). However, The Dashboard write-up does not appear to provide any break down on the deaths (i.e., gender, age, et cetera), or mention any deaths for that day (however, the total number of deaths is mentioned in the write-up).
Death information appears to be being published separately on the GIS website, but in at least one instance, the numbers do not add up. For example, on the Oct 22 dashboard image, 4 deaths were mentioned, but in the write-up below the dashboard image, there is no break down. A separate GIS post, titled ‘Two More Covid-19 Deaths On October 22,’ and published on Oct 23, which conflicts with Oct 22 dashboard data count of 4.
