THE Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. said the island’s remaining Covid-19 patient has recovered and been discharged from Kanoa Resort, a designated quarantine site.

The patient was the 12th to recover from Covid-19.

As of April 28, the CNMI had recorded 14 confirmed Covid-19 cases, with 12 recoveries and two deaths.

CHCC Chief Executive Officer Esther Muna said there are now no patients or persons under investigation at Kanoa Resort.

In a statement, Press Secretary Kevin Bautista said the governor’s Covid-19 Task Force and CHCC will continue their surveillance efforts within the community for any potential cases.

“Now, at Gov. Ralph DLG Torres’ direction, the priority is community-based testing to really get a handle on how widespread the virus is in our community,” Bautista said.

“Our efforts on community-based testing will coincide with efforts to reopen our economy as we discussed during [the] Fiscal Response Summit closing plenary session. Careful planning with public health in mind will dictate how we open up the economy in phases and how we implement the changes to the CNMI’s fiscal structure moving forward. The goal is to be Covid-19-free and ensure that our government and economy can safely reopen to generate revenue. So far, Governor Torres’ proactive leadership and the great CNMI minds around him at CHCC, the task force, and all the first responders and medical workers are keeping our curve flat, unlike other areas in our region, and keeping our people safe. More federal assistance is well on its way, and we look forward to making sure the Marianas gets [the] relief it needs during this pandemic,” Bautista said.
