Three Active Cases of Covid-19 remain in SVG – NEMO


St Vincent and the Grenadines now has 14 recovered COVID-19 cases, following the receipt of the second negative PCR result for two persons from the Caribbean Public Health Agency – CARPHA.

These results were included in a batch of results for 14 samples sent on Wednesday May 13, 2020 to the regional Public Health Lab, a release from the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) said.

No new positive COVID-19 cases were reported.

This means there are now just three active cases of COVID -19 in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

“All precautionary repeat PCR COVID-19 tests done on six Carnival Cruise Line Crew members, in keeping with the May 13 updated repatriation protocol for crew members, were negative.

“Meanwhile, all Carnival Cruise Line Crew members repatriated on May 9 are advised to complete their 14 days of quarantine,” the release said.

The public is again urged to maintain strict hand hygiene, cough etiquette, physical distancing in public spaces, smart mask use and strict adherence to quarantine and isolation instructions to ensure that we continue to slow the spread of COVID-19 in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
