The second person to test positive for COVID-19 in St. Vincent and the Grenadines has fully recovered and has received medical clearance.

The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) said that this was confirmed on Monday when the Caribbean Public Health Agency reported a  second negative PCR test for that individual.

“This result means that there are now only 10 confirmed active COVID-19 cases in St. Vincent and the Grenadines,” NEMO said.

Case #2 exposed over 100 other persons to the disease, but none of them have tested positive, according to information revealed by Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves in early April.

There had been much anger and public outrage about the conduct of the woman, who broke her 14-day quarantine after returning from the United States on March 25.

She visited several business places in Kingstown and spent time in at least two villages even as she had begun exhibiting symptoms of the disease.

The woman was reported to health authorities on March 28 and had been in isolation since then.

SVG’s most recent COVID- 19 positive case was recorded on April 9.

“The Government of St. Vincent and the Grenadines will continue to keep the public informed, as we manage this public health challenge together,” NEMO said on Monday’s press statement.

  1. MR Chance what’s the matter with you.? You are not the independent gournalist l know.y you ain’t printing my comments. The PM said that the 116 people that came in contact with CV19#2did not have it.But at the time of his statement there was only 87 person test so how he could make that statemen giving the fact it can be in your body for more than 14 days unditectedAnd l said l am not satisfied with the job of Mrs beach.ls because I mentioned her name? And if that is so being a gournalist is not for you.Not because she was one of your former boss.In her capacity when politician speak stupidness she should come out and say it as it is.And I think you should change profession with that slavery mentality you have.

    Lets hope that she will now be successfully prosecuted and spends some time locked down in prison.

    How can we say that none of the over 100 persons that was exposed to case 2 tested positive when in truth not all were tested. As a matter of fact, how many of those exposed persons were tested?

  4. Alwayn Leacock says:

    Testing negative if you were positive and never showed symptoms is not recovery. We are in uncharted waters if you recover are you immune and how long that immunity last night one knows. So how long will this test remain negative for and can they get it again ? Who gets it again ?
