St. Vincent and the Grenadines, on Sunday, confirmed 24 new COVID-19 cases, of which 23 are nationals without a recent travel history.
The new cases come at a time when four of the nation’s 143 active cases have been admitted for care.
The four patients, all adults, are stable, the National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) said in a statement in which it announced the new cases.
NEMO said that a detailed review of all of the positive cases reported over the last two weeks has led to a minor revision of the total number of cases under investigation.
“This reconciliation has confirmed that there are 120 local cases being investigated,” NEMO said.
On Sunday, NEMO also confirmed a COVID-19 case in a non-national who arrived from the United Kingdom on Dec. 26 with a negative PCR test and tested positive during quarantine.
NEMO said that 249 cases of COVID-19 have been reported in SVG since March 11, 2020.
Of those, 106 persons have recovered and 143 remain active.
“All positive cases will continue to be isolated until cleared by two negative tests,” NEMO said.
