“Therefore this figure is not representative of the positive cases over the past 24 hours. Only one positive case come from a sample taken within the last 24 hours,” the Ministry of Health added.

Trinidad & Tobago has 243 cases and eight deaths from the virus that was first detected in China last December and blamed for 722,000 deaths and 19.4 million infections worldwide.
