St. Vincent and the Grenadines has recorded four more COVID-19 deaths, bringing the total in the country to 42, even as the deaths of six other COVID-19 positive patients are under investigation. 

The National Emergency Management Organisation (NEMO) said, on Thursday — in its first update since the weekend — that a 77-year-old male who tested positive for COVID-19 on Oct. 3 died at home one week later of “COVID-19 infection”. 

The other deaths are as follows:

A 61-year-old female who tested positive for COVID-19 on Oct. 2, was admitted to the COVID ward at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital on Oct. 5 and died on Oct. 11 of COVID-19 pneumonia. 

Another 61-year-old female who tested positive for COVID-19 on Sept. 24, died on Oct. 11 while admitted to the COVID-19 ward at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital (MCMH).

A 79-year-old male patient tested positive for COVID-19 on Oct. 3 and died on Oct. 13. 

All the patients were unvaccinated. 

NEMO said there are 19 patients admitted for COVID-19 at the Argyle Isolation Facility. Sixteen are unvaccinated, one  patient is partially vaccinated, and two patients are fully vaccinated. 

A further 34 patients are admitted to the COVID-19 wards at the MCMH. Of these patients, 33  are unvaccinated and one patient is partially vaccinated. 

Meanwhile, 121 new COVID-19 positive cases were reported from 656 samples collected on Oct. 6, resulting in a positivity rate of 18.4%.

 One of the new cases is an entry screen in a fully vaccinated passenger from St. Lucia. Four cases were detected during exit screening. 

All other cases are contacts of known positive cases and persons seeking care. 

Sixteen rapid antigen positive cases were reported from flu clinics.

And, 110 new recoveries were noted over the reporting period. 

NEMO said that 1,372 cases are currently active, from 4,217 cases of COVID-19  recorded in St. Vincent and the Grenadines since March 2020.

NEMO further stated that the number of active cases in its release on Sunday, Oct. 10, was1,365 and not 1,286, as stated. 

The release gave no further update on the 800 samples that were awaiting testing last Sunday. 

As was the case in its previous releases, however, NEMO said: 

“In view of the confirmed presence of the Delta, Mu and Gamma variants in the community and the significant increase in the number of new infections, transmission, severe COVID-19 disease and deaths, strict enforcement and compliance with all protocols and recommendations by everyone is strongly recommended. The correct and consistent use of masks, avoidance of crowds, physical distancing, proper hand sanitising and immunisation with available vaccines have all been proven to significantly reduce the risk of being infected, getting sick and or dying from the COVID-19 virus.”

  1. Although it is a proven fact by ALL scientific studies that masks do not help, it is also questionable if vaccines work at all. SVG may be the only country in the world that claims that no one has ever died from the vaccines. Here is just one article out of hundreds or thousands that mention masses of VACCINATED people that die of Covid-19:

    I think all the top scientist on earth should rush to SVG to discover why vaccinated people have never had any adverse effects or deaths.

  2. Is it true that some people are allegedly being hospitalized post covid jab with complications? If so, why its not in the news too?

  3. This mRNA scientist that was involved in creating the vaccines tells us that GOVERNMENTS ARE PUTTING OUT FALSE INFORMATION concerning these vaccines. He indicates THEY ARE AT THIS TIME STILL EXPERIMENTAL AND SHOULD NOT BE “PUSHED” …AS THE GOVERNMENT OF SVG IS DOING!

    Since this man is a scientist, he may not know that these leaders (which includes about 99% on earth) have also received their mandates, “instructions” from the quasi “Global Government” via the WHO, Worldbank, IMF, and WEF. Leaders that do not comply…”Bad tings can happen to ya”. As we have witnessed.

    We live on a small island and it is predictable that at times like these, almost regardless of who the leader is, that an “authoritarian” policy would evolve, as people cannot so easily just walk away. In the minds of many it is like being a cornered animal or the feeling of being trapped in a prison although you are innocent. People will continue to have the pressure turned up, especially since the vaccines are actually NOT WORKING! It has been recognized that the vaccinated still get and die from Covid-19 and that the vaccines CAN NEVER BRING HEARD IMMUNITY!

    SVG seems to be the only country in the world where the vaccinated NEVER GET THE VIRUS AND NO VACCINATED PERSON EVER DIES FROM THE VIRUS OR DIES FROM THE VACCINES.

    If you know anyone that has died from the vaccines it must be coincidence or you just imagined it.




    OUR CMO WILL NEVER WATCH THIS VIDEO! It does not contain the idolised sold-out, now FAKE scientist (wear multiple useless masks) Emperor Fauci.

  5. What role is NEMO playing in the pandemic? It gives you the numbers as regard covid and are there medical personnel employed by NEMO? Does the CMO have to answer to NEMO in instances like this pandemic? Is NEMO an extension of the ministry of health and how exactly is it’s present role helping to curb the spread of covid 19 in SVG?

  6. The bible says my people die for a lack of knowledge. I say they die because of ignorance. Take the vaccine and give yourself a chance of survival if you ever get exposed to the virus. Their chickens have come home to roost by those avoidable deaths.

  7. My fellow citizens. Please take the vaccine. We cannot afford to loose anymore of you. You are to precious. I have taken the Pfizer vaccine and I am fine.

    When we drink we take a chance at life. When we smoke we take a chance at life. When we drive or fly we take a chance at life. When we have sex in some cases we take a chance at life. When we eat imported foods we take a chance at life. Life is just opportunity that God grants us all. It’s not guaranteed that’s just the reality but we can preserve it by taking certain courses of action.

    Every Vincentian has a scar on their arm from the measles vaccine. We have also taken other vaccines. The development of this vaccine was fast due technological and medicinal advancement. People have died in all cases of vaccination but the deaths are minuscule in comparison to the survivability rates.

    Please take the vaccine. God bless.

  8. You all in saint Vincent are going to succumb to more covid deaths because of you all bias behaviour and always wants to blame the pm for all that is happening. Don’t go and take the shots fools you will see how many body bags they will start counting. Good luck.

  9. What a load of nonsense. The vaccine is an experimental drug. It does not stop you from getting covid or passing it on. It affects you according to your genetic makeup. Everyone has the right to chose what goes into their body. Governments are putting deaths down to covid when in fact some of these patients died from other illnesses.

  10. Concerned Citizen says:

    Some people wear ignorance like a badge of pride, those folks who fall into that category are easily identifiable, because of their liberal use of uppercase letters in trying to make their point, what they say about empty kettles making the most noise is very applicable.
