    Mr. Colin James, CEO of the Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority, asserted that the total number of COVID-19 cases in Antigua & Barbuda remains at 26 with only 3 active cases where it has been since early May, as reported by the Ministry of Health, Wellness and The Environment. The Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority has refuted claims that some passengers arriving on AA2405 on Wednesday, June 10 tested positive for COVID-19
    Visitors arriving in Antigua & Barbuda on commercial flights staying at approved accommodation are evaluated for COVID-19 with a series of health screenings, temperature checks and nose swabs taken for the coronavirus test. Returning nationals receive health screenings and temperature checks but are not routinely tested. Returning Nationals are required to self-quarantine for up to 14 days when their home accommodation is deemed suitable. There is an option to quarantine at the Government’s Quarantine facility if they are unable to safely quarantine at home.

    At this time all results for persons arriving at the VC Bird International Airport have been negative. There have been no positive results to date for those entering the country.

    .
    from the 15th June.

    No further tests have confirmed positive but antibody testing of people who have been quarantined will take place. The Minister of Health discusses the problems with Dengue and looks forward to the time when the flu season will come around again. He is concerned that everyone who has flu like symptoms will assume it is Coronavirus and attend hospital. They are considering a national influenza immunisation program to combat this. Cabinet will vote on this next week.

    Prime Minister Gaston Browne has disclosed that Antigua and Barbuda’s most recent confirmed case of the coronavirus is a six-year-old boy who was in the care of another Covid patient.

    Browne explained that the development, “was not quite surprising” because the young boy and his entire family had been quarantined for some time.

    “I believe that they are actually close to the period for quarantine or isolation and I believe they will be back into the domestic community very shortly with the exception of the youngster,” Browne said on his radio station, Pointe FM, on Saturday.

    He further explained that the grandmother was the initial person who contracted the virus and “had very close touch with the grandson who is the youngest member of the family”.

    The boy became the 25th confirmed case of the virus on Friday when 15 samples were returned from the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) in Trinidad

    Retail businesses have been added to the list of workplaces permitted to operate under the current state of emergency.

    During the latest meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers, it was decided that restrictions on such businesses would be relaxed beginning from 6 am today. Information Minister Melford Nicholas said that these businesses will be allowed to open until 6 pm each day.

    Health officials have begun testing dead people for Covid-19 after the country recorded an unusual number of sudden death cases in males within the past month.
    Minister of Health Molwyn Joseph said that the testing would have to be done “rather quickly” after the person has died.

    “Most of the tests that we have done on people who have died suddenly have come back negative but, because of what has developed and because of the unknown, we are erring on the side of caution,” the minister told Observer radio yesterday afternoon.

    And despite just hours earlier telling a press conference that none of the abrupt fatalities in recent months had returned a positive Covid-19 result, Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Dr Rhonda Sealey-Thomas later admitted one in fact had.

    The CMO told Observer last night that the ministry had conducted blood tests on two sudden death cases – and one had been positive.
