Two Active Cases of COVID-19 Remain in SVG
St Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) now has only two active cases of COVID-19, following the receipt on June 9, of 91 negative COVID-19 PCR results from the CARPHA Public Health Laboratory.
This batch of results included nine negative results which were the second ones for nine COVID-19 positive persons, medically clearing them, a release from the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) said.
“Two hundred and five RCCL crew members were released from quarantine today following the receipt of the negative results for their second COVID-19 PCR.
“There are still 153 crew members who have not had a result from a second PCR to clear them from quarantine. These crew members are urged to remain in quarantine until the receipt of these results despite the expiration of the initial 14 days of mandatory quarantine,” the release said.
The Health Services Sub-Committee of the National Emergency Committee urges all Vincentians to remain vigilant and to support all of our returning nationals in their strict compliance with quarantine and isolation.
