There are now only two active cases of COVID-19, in St. Vincent  and the Grenadines, following the receipt yesterday of 91 negative COVID-19 PCR results from the CARPHA Public Health Laboratory.

This batch of results included 9 negative results which were the second ones for 9 COVID-19 positive persons, medically clearing them.
