On the 13th August, Tristan Administrator Fiona Kilpatrick tweeted:

"This week on #tristandacunha I had the privilege of registering a birth - the first baby born on the island in almost 9 years. Little Alfie is doing well, and we send our congratulations and love to his parents and family and our thanks to the amazing medical team that arranged for equipment and expertise on-island in the challenging times of a global pandemic. In recent years, Tristan babies have mostly been born in Cape Town, and we're grateful for them all. Now families on Tristan can also choose to have their babies here, which is wonderful. We wish Alfie a long and happy life!"
