The Caribbean island currently has 968 confirmed cases of covid, as stated by John Hopkins University.
According to Reuters, Barbados is reporting 39 new infections on average each day.
However, it is the nation’s seven-day infection rate which has caused most concern.
Prior to Christmas, the island was recording 3.8 cases per 100,000 residents.
That figure now sits at 96.9 cases per 100,000 residents.
Travel expert Paul Charles, from the PC Agency, told The Telegraph he believed the rise in infection was a “hangover” from the Christmas period.
