Antigua & Barbuda was declared COVID-19 free by Molwyn Joseph, the Minister of Health Wellness and the Environment.

The declaration came after the Ministry of Health reported another person had recovered from the disease on Monday.

“Essentially we are COVID free as we speak. There is no one who has been tested and identified as having COVID has it anymore”, Joseph said on state media.

Of the 26 people who have tested positive for the virus, three have died.

The dashboard said 21 people had recovered from the disease.

However, the Minister explained all 23 surviving patients have received two consecutive negative tests but two are still physically recovering from the effects of the illness.

“Of the two, one has since been discharged from the hospital and there is only one individual in the hospital now. That person does not have COVID anymore, but he is being cared for at the hospital because of the type of care that is required, Joseph said.

The latest dashboard reflected the situation as of 10:00 am on Monday.

The Health Ministry said overall 680 samples have been taken from 607 people.

The dashboard said there were 64 people in government quarantine facilities and none in self-quarantine.

There were also no pending results.

  1. Stupzz!!! Bet you next week we go hear about an imported case. Remeber Florida is a new hot spot and the airport has been reopened we are not testing! Molwyn needs to retire.

  2. How about doing some random testing of those who flew in and didn’t really quarantine. I know of two people who where out the first night after being allowed to home quarantine. But nooooo . Government lied about the test kits . Lied about the protocols for driving passengers. Government lying thief steeling our money and now beg from others…..We are broke after 1 month. Where did all the money go MR Brown ?

    • When did St. Kitts borrow(which had an election)? when did St. Lucia Borrow? When did Barbados borrow? St. Vincent, Dominica? Y’all doom and gloom fools that was hoping all fall down during this pandemic are all so sad…. Antigua has weathered the storm alot better than 99% of the other Caribbean Countries and sensible people would have seen that. Can’t fool the people here..

  3. That’s because you guys don’t test people … people come to the hospital and you guys are still asking if they are coughing .. if not, you guy declares them covid free … covid is not longer just coughing …. trust me your testing is off…
    but I guess u guys want a report so covid free it is

  4. Stupzz???? You must be one miserable, lonely soab!!You seem so choked with negative energy that you can’t for a minute appreciate positive information. You clearly want to see Antigua and Antiguans undergo tremendous suffering. Traitor!

  5. So if it’s virtually covid free why are people still being held in “Quarantine” at, dirty and old Hawksbill Hotel without being tested? And i dont mean testing your temperature… I mean swabbing the people and ensuring that the virus isn’t present. Is that how the actual numbers are being hidden? I would think that process would essentially cause more individuals to become ill..

  6. Antigua is Covid free because you want the tourists to come. Nobody Is going to go to a country with Covid. Anyway the Last thing on people’s mind is to sit on a plane for four to eight hours with maybe sick people. Plus most of the so-called tourists are unemployed.

  7. HIP.HIP,HIP,HOORAY,ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA AS A NATION IS COVID FREE.FOLKS DO NOT LISTEN TO THAT MAN.NO WHERE IN THIS WORLD IS COVID -19 FREE.PERHAPS IT IS COVID LABOR PARTY FREE.HOW COULD PERSONS IN POSITIONS OF LEADERSHIP MAKE SUCH IRRESPONSIBLE STATEMENTS.SOME WEEKS AGO I HEARD THE PRIME MINISTER SAYING THE SAME THING.THEN SHORTLY AFTER THAT.HE WAS ANNOUNCING THERE WERE CASES IN ANTIGUA.IS THERE A VACCINE IN ANTIGUA FOR COVID-19.THAT IS ONLY KNOWN TO MOLWYN AND GASTON.
