(CMR) An American male visitor is rumored to have been admitted to the intensive care unit at one of the local hospitals after testing positive for COVID-19.
This rumor states that after meeting his fiancé online he was permitted by Travel Time to enter the Grand Cayman about 10 days ago. Since then he has tested positive and is in the ICU at a local hospital. The source is confident that he's admitted at either the HSA or Health City; but not at Doctor's Hospital.
CMR is doing our best to now investigate the details of this rumor and will update when more information becomes available.
