A usually reliable source has told BreadFruit News that suspected Covid-19 cases have been discovered at this country’s premier health facility, the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital.
Already, officials at the hospital are making plans to curtail some services and foot traffic to the institution. Testing continues to determine the extent of the transmission.
It is not yet clear which wards have been affected. Some members of staff were told to prepare themselves for testing in the days ahead and to make a list of persons they may have come into contact with to facilitate contact tracing.
St. Vincent and the Grenadines has seen an outbreak of transmission in the local community with health authorities reporting as of yesterday that 12 cases are still under investigation.
One person speaking to BreadFruit News said that a cluster of positive cases may be traced to the hospital.
