1009 in quarantine at home


The most recent report received by the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment from the Mount St. John’s Medical Center (MSJMC) has revealed no new laboratory confirmed COVID-19 case in Antigua and Barbuda as of Wednesday 30th December 2020 at 6pm.

Subsequent to the publication of the dashboard on Wednesday 30th December 2020 with the cut off time of 6pm, fifty-four samples were processed at the Mount St. John’s Medical Center which increased the pending results from zero to fifty-four.

All fifty-four samples processed by MSJMC yielded negative results and are reflected in the total persons tested and total samples taken columns of the dashboard.

Consequently, the total number of persons with laboratory confirmed COVID-19 cases in Antigua and Barbuda remains at one hundred and fifty-nine (159); which is inclusive of six (6) active cases.

The dashboard has been updated to reflect these changes.

  1. I noticed that 11 people are in the government quarantine facility as opposed to the 1009 people self quarantined at home. What determines who is sent to the government quarantine? Is it a person with no connection to local housing facility? And by the way, for the 11 people in government quarantine are they paying the $100 daily for meals? This is a question I would like Melford Nicholas to give an answer to on his next Cabinet briefing.

  2. I have noticed that there are 1009 people in home quarantine and 100 people in the government quarantine facility. What determines when a person is placed in home quarantine as opposed to the government quarantine? Are the people placed in the government quarantine paying the $100 daily for meals? I hope that Melford Nicholas can answer these questions at the next Cabinet briefing.
