SWRHA: No case of Coronavirus

The Southwest Regional Health Authority (SWRHA) is assuring that there are no reported Coronavirus cases up to this present time at any of its facilities, including the San Fernando General Hospital.

This follows claims on social media that this country may have its first potential Coronavirus case.

A letter referring a patient who presented himself at a private institution with flu like symptoms to the San Fernando General Hospital, has been making its rounds on Facebook.

According to the referral letter, a 31-year- old patient who recently returned from Japan experienced coughing, sore throat, body pains and vomiting.

In a statement on Sunday evening, the SWRHA assured that it is full control of the situation, as there are adequately trained personnel, equipment and resources available to manage medical situations.
