St. Vincent and the Grenadines confirmed fifty-three (53) new COVID-19 cases
yesterday. Two (2) cases are non-nationals who arrived from the USA with negative
RT-PCR tests and subsequently tested positive for COVID-19. All of the other cases
are nationals detected during contact tracing, testing at flu clinics and targeted
screening. There are now five hundred and fifteen (515) local cases of COVID-19,
the majority of whom are linked to various clusters.
One hundred and twenty-two (122) persons have recovered, five hundred and thirty-
one (531) cases remain active and two (2) persons with COVID-19 have died. Six
hundred and fifty-five (655) cases of COVID-19 have been reported in St. Vincent
and the Grenadines since March 2020. All positive cases will remain isolated until
cleared.
The Molecular Laboratory Unit is once again experiencing delays in the processing
and reporting of results for RT-PCR samples due to a significant back log. Persons
awaiting results are asked to remain in quarantine and call the health care facility in
their district responsible for COVID-19 services.
