There are now 11 individuals who have recovered from Covid-19 in the CNMI, she added.

The first nine patients who recovered were released from Kanoa Resort on April 15.

As of April 22, Wednesday, CHCC had released a total of 237 persons from Kanoa Resort and the other quarantine site, the Pacific Islands Club.

Meanwhile, Gov. Ralph DLG Torres said the CNMI has secured personal protective equipment, gowns, sanitizers, ventilators and other products needed by the Covid-19 front-liners. More shipments will arrive next week, he added.

“We are working extremely hard to find the medical equipment needed by our first responders and front-liners,” he said. “Everyone is looking for N95 masks. Everyone is looking for ventilators. Everyone wants test kits. It is challenging. But we are fortunate to have the right group and the right support system that have allowed us to secure the equipment and test kits.”

The governor said the CNMI will “start testing our nurses and doctors and government employees who interact with the community.” The goal, he reiterated, is to test everyone in the Commonwealth.

As of April 22, Wednesday, the CNMI had recorded 14 Covid-19 cases, two deaths and 11 recoveries.
