St. Vincent and the Grenadines now has nine active cases of COVID-19 after five new cases were discovered among persons who arrived in the country between Wednesday and Thursday

All five cases are travellers who arrived from the United States and Canada, the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) said in a press statement.

Four of the new cases arrived from the United States with negative PCR results and tested positive on day 4 or 5 tests between Wednesday and Thursday.

The fifth case arrived on Thursday on Air Canada with a negative PCR result and tested positive on arrival. The negative result, with which the passenger arrived, was 6 days old on arrival.

“All of these new cases are in isolation and their contacts are being informed and checked for possible exposure as deemed appropriate. They will all remain in isolation until cleared by two negative PCR test results,” NEMO said.

One reply on “With 5 new cases, SVG now has 9 COVID-19 patients”

  1. Vicentians in UK, Canada and the USA are the reservoir for Covid cases coming into SVG. Yes we can get that infection from other places too. But those 3 are our primary source. And so we need to pay attention to their circumstance, advise them on their care bc it is in our interest to have healthy Vincentians wherever located.
    To that end I would strongly advise Vincentians living in those 3 Northern hemisphere countries, away from the equator to delve into the issue of VITAMIN D and understand its importance to you.
    I wrote about this in the beginning of the pandemic, but more and more studies of all kinds are showing you need to be supplementing with VITAMIN D on a regular basis. Dr. Fauci of the USA said he takes 6,000 iu/day D3. He lives in Washington DC, is 77 years old (is not obese or dark complexion, which might require more). If you are overweight, dark complexion and for the fall and winter, expect your doctor to order higher dose of VITAMIN D.
    That level is for prevention. For treatment you will need a much higher level for the first week of treatment. YOU WILL NOT SEE MONIES SPENT ADVERTISING THIS BC IT IS TOO CHEAP AND MADE BY THE SUN FOR FREE.
    Those of us in SVG can assist our overseas relatives with this critical information
