ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- The [British] Virgin Islands has once again joined a small list of countries in the Caribbean with zero reported active cases of COVID-19.

This was revealed by Government on Sunday, October 25, 2020.

After being COVID-19 free earlier this month, the Territory had one reported case of COVID-19 for the past two weeks and the infected person was someone who had returned to the Territory and was quarantined.

“No active confirmed COVID-19 cases in the BVI as of 25th October 2020. Thank GOD for this good news. We commend the efforts of everyone especially our HEOC and Health Team in this fight against COVID-19,” Premier and Minister of Finance, Honourable Andrew A. Fahie (R1) stated on his Facebook page on October 25, 2020.

The Territory has had a total of 72 confirmed cases, with 71 recoveries and one death.

According to Government, 5861 persons have been tested at the Dr D. Orlando Smith Hospital Laboratory.

Some of the territories and countries in the Caribbean without any reported cases of COVID-19 are St Kitts, Anguilla, Saba and Montserrat.

  • Quarantine a must...My Suggestions.. (26/10/2020, 06:58) Like (10) Dislike (3) Reply
    Some kind of quarantine must be a part of our open borders plan. .. Here is my Suggestion.. 1/ I think we can have 3 days quarantine, 2/ Have out Lab working 24hr shift the situation required that, 3/ Charge each arriving passenger, visitors, residents, everyone $30.00 for the test it's like express service they have to pay,. It's a lot better than the Xtra day in Lock down and hundreds of dollars Xtra in cost... 4/ Anyone that tested positive upon arrival will have to pay every day they in quarantine until they recover, they will be better served and better off making sure the test they are bringing is authentic and honest, 5/ have a safe and secure location for yacht's and boats and have them quarantine the 3 days on board until their test results are known, 6/ have one of our marine units watching that area, They can order their provisioning stuff, good, etc, our marine unit will collect it and take it to them......My Suggestions are effective, attractive and very possible and practical.. Good for business, Everyone benefits..
