Two persons who arrived in St. Vincent on July 25 on the American Airlines flight from Miami were isolated at the Argyle Isolation Facility (AIF) to ensure that they comply with their isolation.

National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) said in a press statement Wednesday night that both patients  “were not ill on admission, and continue to be asymptomatic COVID-19 cases”

One of them has been released from the AIF to continue isolation in their isolation-approved home, while the other individual remains at the facility, NEMO said.

Meanwhile, St. Vincent and the Grenadines on Wednesday confirmed one new COVID-19 case.

This case arrived on American Airlines (AA) 945 flight on Aug. 1 and the individual has been isolated since receipt of their preliminary positive result.

“The Vincentian national is doing well and has no symptoms typical of coronavirus,” NEMO said in the press statement Wednesday night.

All of the other 102 passengers who arrived from on the flight Miami are in mandatory quarantine, and will be tested for the SARS-CoV-2 virus between day 4 and 5 of quarantine.

One COVID-19 case recovered as indicated by two negative results of RT-PCR tests.

SVG has now recorded a total of 56 COVID-19 cases, 46 of which have recovered. There are now 10 active COVID-19 cases in the country.

“The public is urged to continue to work with the health and security services to keep St. Vincent and the Grenadines healthy. This can be achieved, once everyone adheres to all quarantine and isolation orders,” NEMO said.
