Grenada has today reported that it has discovered two more COVID-19 patients.
According to National Coordinator for COVID-19, Dr. George Mitchell the two new cases were discovered among the first batch of 47 persons who were tested locally for the first time on the island.
In a brief address to the nation, Dr. Mitchell said that this brings to 13 the number of coronavirus patients on the island as one patient had slipped out of the island last week undetected and made his way back to his place of residence in the United Kingdom.
He gave assurances that the two new cases discovered and the other eleven currently on the island are all in quarantine with assistance from the Royal Grenada Police Force (RGPF).
The National COVID-19 Co-ordinator urged Grenadians to continue to practice good and safe hygiene in order to help the efforts being undertaken on the island to control the deadly disease which has killed over 100, 000 persons worldwide.
