ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- An airline passenger who travelled from the Territory to St Vincent and the Grenadines through St Lucia on Wednesday, July 15, 2020, has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19, according to Deputy Premier and Minister for Health and Social Development, Honourable Carvin Malone (AL).

During a live COVID-19 update last evening, July 19, 2020, Honourable Malone said the individual was swabbed on arrival in St Vincent and was subsequently reported as positive for COVID-19.

He said the Government of the Virgin Islands was officially informed of the case on Saturday, July 18, 2020.

“To be clear, this individual was not tested in the BVI and was therefore not previously suspected or known to us as an active COVID-19 case,” Hon Malone said.

Active contact tracing

The Health Minister said a Public Health team has been deployed to actively investigate the matter by identifying the persons with whom this passenger is reported to have been in contact, in order to quarantine and test close contacts who remain in the Territory.

“Contact tracing and follow-up testing will provide additional information regarding the level of exposure to the virus so that steps can be taken to rapidly contain and suppress the potential for further spread in the interest of public safety.”

Hon Malone said the public is well aware and is therefore reminded that if the VI is to avoid COVID-19 community spread and thereafter the return to a lockdown protocol, everyone is strongly encouraged to strictly adhere to all Public Health measures that have been put in place for their protection.

The VI has only recorded 8 cases of COVID-19, with one death.

20,000 test kits to be purchased

The Health Minister related that testing remains an important element of the Territory’s strategy to limit the transmission of the virus and that the BVI Health Services Authority (BVIHSA) has tested 741 individuals, with 733 returning negative and 8 positive results to date.

He said the laboratory currently has capacity to conduct over 3,000 COVID-19 tests in-house and is actively seeking to purchase an additional 20,000 testing kits with the assistance of Public Health England.

Currently, testing is mainly being carried out on persons who meet the case definition for COVID-19, all Emergency Room admissions, all Hospital Inpatients, all persons undergoing surgery, persons requiring COVID-19 tests for travel, Health Care Workers based on exposure risk, Health Care Workers requesting COVID 19 testing; persons being detained who entered the Territory illegally; and all returning residents exiting mandatory quarantine.

1,400 businesses inspected

In terms of workplace preventive measures, Hon Malone said the members of the Compliance Teams and Social Distancing Task Force inspected close to 1,400 businesses with approximately 96% of these meeting the requirements for re-opening.

In addition to the businesses that met the re-opening criteria, 64 churches were approved based on their compliance with established procedures.

“Engagement was also had with entities that provide janitorial, car rental, taxi and trucking service.”

Hon Malone also said 16 of the 18 schools inspected have been approved subject to reopen once a decision is made by Cabinet on the re-opening of educational facilities.

Robust monitoring

It was noted that a more robust and continuous monitoring of the entities that were approved to reopen will be ongoing.

“Patrons of bars, restaurants and other social spaces must be made aware of the need to adhere to all protocols. To date 514 post-approval inspections were conducted to ensure sustained compliance with the requisite COVID-19 prevention measures related to physical distancing, hand washing and respiratory etiquette,” Hon Malone disclosed.

All the country is saying is that if you are not working and have no means of supporting yourself and paying your bills leave until circumstances are better for you to come back. How many foreigners in other Caribbean countries getting unemployment cheques. Tell me? Lots of countries angry what. Try move with your stupid talk.

    Take little Finlandia vodka, which is 37,5 % strong with water in the morning and in the evening, it harms the Sars-CoV-2 virus, and your body protection system works then better and you will be well and be in good health. Or try some other strong alcohol drink.

    This is my way against Covid -19, which I use, because I dont want the virus into my lungs, and I dont want to experience any difficulties to breath. I need the oxygen and my organs too need the oxygen, so I dont have to go to a hospital and breathe with a breathing machine.

      You ain’t saying nothing but the truth. No testing is being done unless you take sick they might test you at the hospital. We have not active cases because of no testing. I’m sure if tests are done you will see the numbers rise. The ignorance of people making comments that there are no active cases so why we wearing masks. Bars and clubs open, guys playing basketball like it’s all clear putting other people and their families at risk. We need to open shop and do some testings.

    That person left here with the virus but just was not tested here. No way they would just pick the virus up in transit one day get swab that same date get a positive test just so.

    No bad rep for the BVI. It isn’t as if we send the person out knowing they have the virus. The person did not present themself for testing and chose to leave. No blame here in the BVI.

    The only concern for the BVI now is how that person caught the virus in the BVI and who all that person came in contact with. That’s the predicament that person has now left the BVI in.

I also keep telling persons to do not become complacent.. sadly, the virus is still out there..Masks have shown to decrease the spread of this virus.. We all need to LISTEN and stop all the hatred for each other, show more love and keep praying for God to heal our land and the world on a whole..

    This person did not have the virus when they boarded the plane on their way out of the BVI. The were infected on route on the plane or perhaps in St Lucia where they changed planes or perhaps on the new plane. All it takes is for them to inhale a droplet in their masal cavity anywhere onroute then the cotton swab is put in to test ND THE VIRUS PARTICLE IS THERE. It really is that simple , and once the contact tracing is done in the BVI this will be proved. Also now please test everyone who leaves, save all the hysteria.

    For goodness sake, people. It's not a lie or a fake test. No one is setting up the BVI to look bad. It doesn't matter where the person is from. What matters is that they know who is this person is and are actively seeking to find anyone who they have been in contact with through contact tracing. No need for conspiracy theories or xenophobic comments. If they picked it up during a layover on another island or on the plane then the tests on those who have been in contact with the person on the BVI will be tested and the results will be negative.

    Lot of people are saying the government is not doing the adequate testing, i would say true in some respects. The major factor beyond the government control is our porous borders. Look at how that spanish lady came into the territory undetected. I am too sure there has been others before her and even after her who were brought here by our own people if not belongers to expose us to this virus. It can be this or the factor that not enough testing amongst our population, with whom are transporting and importing things, etc. People have to realize that when the government mandated more restrictions it was to imply the possibility of all these factors; not to keep you down or from progressing, but to keep you all safe!

    I want to know if the people who keep saying the person caught it in the BVI were here when we were on 24/7 lockdown for over a month and then into a restrictive curfew period. Its very unlikely the person caught it here.

    And if they did then obviously locking down is not the solution to this problem.

    Some people just want a chance to say I told you so and justify however over the top they have been behaving past the sensible precautions. If its that bad where are the hospitalizations and where are the deaths?

    This case with a VI-St. Lucia- SVG connection should raise some serious concerns. The case may indicate that there are asymptomatic carriers of Covid-19 in the VI and that though they are not showing any symptoms can infect others. Though government has done a good job in keeping the numbers relatively low (8 confirmed cases with 1 death), it should have and should be doing more testing and contact tracing.

    Based on a 34,000 population, the VI has tested 741 people, which equates to approx 2% of the population and about 2 people per capita. In order to do more effective monitoring, testing needs to be ramped up significantly, eg, at least triple the current number. It is encouraging that 20,000 more tests are being procured. What was the tall pole in the tent in the slow and low procurement?

    I believe that the Island man phrase is blogged just to start off the insults on the Locals and the VI. And if I am living in a foreign country and feel that hate for its people honestly I would not stick around.

    Guys just stop with the foolish comment and wait for Malone to tell us more. I’m sure he will set the record straight. It’s easy , find who the person resided with here in the BVI . .. and you know he for sure did because these island people sure know how to pack 5-6 people in 2- bedrooms apartment.

    I agree probably much more testing needed here to get a true idea of number of cases. The helpline and family doctors need to be much more willing to test when people have symptoms.

    We need to get to the bottom of this, whom did she get it from since we have no active case. BVI need to have more border patrols.
