MoH: No truth to claims two-year-old tested positive for COVID-19

There's no truth to claims circulating on social media that a two-year-old has tested positive for COVID-19.

According to the post, a nursery in Diego Martin remained opened despite orders by Government to remain close, and is now quarantined.

However, in a statement on Monday night, the Ministry of Health said this is fake news.

Members of the public are urged to refrain from sharing any false or misleading information about COVID-19.
