One case of chikungunya has been confirmed in Barbados.
Minister of Health John Boyce says the infected patient is a non-national, who has since returned home. The nationality has not been disclosed.
Speaking at a press conference this morning, Minister Boyce said the sample was one of seven sent to Trinidad-based Caribbean Public Health Agency last week.
Officials are promising to continue surveillance at ports of entry.
They say fogging operations and other measures will also continue to fight the spread of the mosquito-borne disease.
