“Twenty-seven (27) new recoveries were noted over the reporting period. Two hundred and thirty one (231) cases are currently active and twelve (12) persons with COVID-19 have died. Two thousand one hundred and thirty-two (2132) cases of COVID-19 and eighteen hundred and eighty nine (1889) recoveries have been recorded in St. Vincent and the Grenadines since March 2020.
