Why does majority of the samples processed by MSJMC return with negative results?

Dr Lester Simon

Question: Why does majority of the samples processed by Mount St. John’s Medical Centre (MSJMC) return with negative results?

Answer: The demographic of people being tested at MSJMC is different to those being processed for the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA).

The samples processed by MSJMC are usually for those individuals who are travelling and require a negative PCR result or individuals who have surgeries while those processed by CARPHA are from individuals who exhibit symptoms, contacts of someone who tested positive and testing of individuals in quarantine and isolation.

  1. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂.
    Seems as if Antiguans attend school when the doors are shut tight.

  2. The number of positives from MSJMC has never been higher than three and maybe four before the PCR negative test requirement for travellers. Stop the fooling game.

  3. Well they did not attend school since the school was closed. They were attempting to attend school. Anyway, got your point 😆. They will now attend via Zoom.
