One more COVID case recorded in SVG


St Vincent and the Grenadines recorded its 26th positive case of COVID-19 today, May 29.

According to a release from the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO), this new case is one of the Vincentian Crew members being repatriated on the RCCL Vision of the Seas.

And it follows the receipt of 114 PCR results sent from the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA).

“There are now just two Royal Caribbean Cruise Line Crew members repatriated on the Vision of the Seas, without PCR results.

These results should be received by Saturday, May 30. RCCL Crew members who tested negative on PCR will be allowed to disembark and continue strict quarantine at home,” the release said.

Of the 26 recorded cases in SVG, there are 12 active cases, 8 of which are from the Vision of the Seas, and 14 recovered cases. The release said all active cases are in isolation.

“The Health Services Sub-Committee of the National Emergency Committee urges the public to support all persons who have been placed in mandatory quarantine, as we work together to ensure that there is no further spread of COVID-19 in St. Vincent and the Grenadines,” NEMO’s release said.
