St Vincent and the Grenadines on Sunday confirmed 24 new COVID-19  cases, one of which was imported.

The imported case is a non-national who arrived from the UK on December  26, 2020 with a negative PCR test and tested positive during quarantine. All of the other 23 new cases are nationals without a recent travel history. 

“A detailed review of all of the positive cases reported over the last two weeks  has led to a minor revision of the total number of cases under investigation. This  reconciliation has confirmed that there are 120 local cases  being investigated,” a release from the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) said. 

Two hundred and forty-nine cases of COVID-19 have been reported in SVG since March 11, 2020. One hundred and six  persons have recovered and 143 remain active. All  positive cases will continue to be isolated until cleared by two negative tests. 

The NEMO release said there are currently four COVID-19 patients “admitted for care” and that all of these adults  are stable.
