KINGSTON, Jamaica — The Ministry of Health and Wellness says Jamaica recorded three new COVID-19 cases and 15 recoveries in the past 24 hours.

This brings to 762 the total number of positive cases and 643 the total number of recoveries.

The newly confirmed cases are all imported and include two women and one man. Their ages range from 27 to 55 years.

Two of the cases - a tourist who stayed in St James and a Jamaican who stayed in Kingston and St Andrew - have been repatriated. The third is a Jamaican resident with an address in Trelawny.
