Kingstown (One News St. Vincent) – Samples from St. Vincent for four persons tested for Covid-19 were rejected by the Caribbean Public Health Agency – CARPHA, the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment said Wednesday.
The samples were rejected “because they did not satisfy the testing criteria for Covid-19”, the Ministry said.
The Ministry said that as at March 31, 2020, samples for 44 persons had been sent for testing. Four were rejected, two were positive, and all other results were reported as negative.
St. Vincent and the Grenadines’ second Covid-19 case is an imported one and was confirmed today when CARPHAs lab sent back results from the most recent batch sent to them from St. Vincent.
