As part of the na­tion­al dri­ve to safe­guard the health of the Trinidad and To­ba­go pop­u­la­tion in the face of the glob­al COVID-19 out­break, the Min­istry of Health con­tin­ues to pro­vide up-to-date in­for­ma­tion on the coun­try’s sta­tus in this re­gard.

The Min­istry of Health pro­vides the fol­low­ing clin­i­cal up­date as of the morn­ing of Mon­day 27th Ju­ly 2020:

6,550  =   Num­ber of sam­ples sub­mit­ted to the Caribbean Pub­lic Health Agency (CARPHA) for test­ing for COVID-19

5,014  =  Num­ber of unique pa­tient tests com­plet­ed

1,536  =  Num­ber of re­peat­ed tests

148  =  Num­ber of sam­ples which have test­ed pos­i­tive

8  =  Num­ber of deaths

128  =  Num­ber of per­sons dis­charged


The Min­istry of Health pro­vides the fol­low­ing up­date:

One (1) ad­di­tion­al per­son has test­ed pos­i­tive for COVID-19. The case is pend­ing epi­demi­o­log­i­cal in­ves­ti­ga­tion. All es­tab­lished pro­to­cols have been im­ple­ment­ed.

COVID-19 Pos­i­tive Pa­tients in Hos­pi­tal – 12

●  Cau­ra Hos­pi­tal  –  11

●  Cou­va Hos­pi­tal and Mul­ti-Train­ing Fa­cil­i­ty  –  1 (HDU)

COVID-19 Pos­i­tive Pa­tients in Step-down / Tran­si­tion Fa­cil­i­ties – (0)

In­ten­sive Care Units (ICUs) are hos­pi­tal wards that pro­vide treat­ment for peo­ple who are very ill. They are staffed with health care pro­fes­sion­als who are trained in ICU treat­ment and the use of so­phis­ti­cat­ed mon­i­tor­ing equip­ment.

High De­pen­den­cy Units (HDUs) are wards for peo­ple who need more ob­ser­va­tion, treat­ment and nurs­ing care than is pos­si­ble in a gen­er­al ward but slight­ly less than that giv­en in an In­ten­sive Care Unit.

An Am­bu­la­to­ry Pa­tient is able to walk about and is not bedrid­den.

Please note:

Mem­bers of the pub­lic are re­mind­ed that they must ad­here to the ‘New Nor­mal’ rec­om­men­da­tions and take the fol­low­ing per­son­al health mea­sures to pro­tect them­selves and their loved ones from COVID-19:

●   Wear a mask over your nose and mouth when you go out in pub­lic

●   Keep your dis­tance from oth­ers (6 feet)

●   Stay home if you are ill

●   Clean then sani­tise sur­faces (e.g. table­tops, door knobs and cell phones)

●   Wash your hands of­ten with soap and wa­ters or use an al­co­hol-based hand sani­tis­er

●   Cough in­to a tis­sue or in­to the cook of your el­bow

●   Avoid touch­ing your face

If you or a loved one de­vel­ops symp­toms of COVID-19, please call the hot­line 877-WELL or 800-WELL (9355) for fur­ther guid­ance.
