This report gives a breakdown of the categories of people in isolation as at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 12.
          
There were 569 persons in isolation. 

Of these, 408 patients (72 per cent) were unvaccinated, and 74 (13 per cent) fully vaccinated.   Of those fully vaccinated patients, two were in primary isolation; one person was in secondary isolation, and the other 71 were in tertiary isolation.  There were nine partially vaccinated individuals, who were all in tertiary isolation. 

The number of unvaccinated people in primary isolation was 20; 16 were in secondary isolation, and 372 in tertiary isolation.

The overall figure for those whose vaccination status was unknown is 78 or 14 per cent.  Of these, 19 were in secondary isolation and 59 in tertiary isolation.

Primary and secondary isolation for COVID-19 patients in Barbados are units which accommodate those who are very ill and need close monitoring and treatment, with primary isolation being designated for the most severely ill.
          
Tertiary isolation houses patients who are mildly ill, or not showing any symptoms of the illness.


It is important to note that the number of people in isolation changes throughout the day as patients are admitted and discharged.
