Fifteen COVID-19 test results have come back negative, Chief Medical Officer Dr Rhonda Sealey-Thomas has said.
She says of the 16 tests which returned on Monday, 5 were repeat tests on persons who previously tested positive.
Of the five repeats, four tested negative and one person tested positive. All 11 people who were tested for the first time are negative for the virus.
Patient zero, the first person to have tested positive for coronavirus here remains positive but there are plans to test her again “in the very near future.” Clinically, officials say the woman is doing very well.
So far there are seven recovered covid-19 patients.
“Its very good news,” Dr. Sealey-Thomas said.
