Officials Continue To Look Out For Fake Covid-19 Tests

1

Principal Nursing Officer Margaret Smith says measures are in place to spot any fake COVID-19 test results presented by passengers at the V.C. Bird International Airport.

“We do have a doctor who has a team working with her at the airport at the moment and they are responsible for verifying the test,” Smith said.

All passengers travelling to Antigua and Barbuda must receive a negative PCR test within a week before boarding their flight.

According to Smith, there has been full compliance so far.

“We haven’t had, to date, any case where somebody presents a document to us about their COVID status … that’s been determined to be false.”

  1. The PM claimed people were presenting fake test certificates.

    Also there’s no way Antigua could verify test results coming from another country.

    There are privacy laws.

    The requirement for a negative test up to 7 days earlier is a joke.
