The Ministry of Health, Grenada has been informed by its Trinidadian counterpart that the 3 Trinidad nationals repatriated from Grenada last week, who initially tested positive for Covid-19, have now tested negative.
The Trinidadian authorities confirmed that the 3 individuals have been tested twice since the first test was conducted on Friday, 17 July, and both tests returned negative results. The individuals are no longer being held in quarantine in Trinidad and Tobago.
The Ministry of Health Grenada welcomes this development and confirms that its contact tracing efforts since the initial announcement by Trinidad and Tobago, have returned only negative test results.
In the last few days, the contact tracing team has tested 154 persons in Grenada, who were in direct or indirect contact with the 3 repatriated Trinidadians, and all have since tested negative on both PCR and IGG/IGM.
The ministry takes this opportunity to congratulate the contact tracing team on its exemplary work to date, and in particular, over the last few days as members moved aggressively to deal with the situation.
The Ministry of Health continues to emphasise the importance of observing the safety protocols, such as wearing masks, practicing physical distancing and good hygiene.
The Ministry of Health will continue to spearhead the fight against Covid-19, and we plead with all citizens to remain highly vigilant, as we are still in the midst of the global Covid-19 pandemic.
Wow contact tracing…what on earth are these testing involve and who carrying out them .
Grenada has approximately 100k people and based on the information being given we don’t have a clue what is going on .
The government should be using the platform they have available to educate the people.
I wholeheartedly agree
