Andrew Holness, designating the entire island a disaster area, under the Disaster Risk Management Act. The decision was taken to quarantine the communities after a number of persons, who are linked to the first individual, who tested positive for the virus (patient zero), started showing symptoms that suggested that they are ill or becoming ill.
