Grenada has announced a new case of COVID-19 on Wednesday; six weeks after the island had recorded its 23rd case of the disease.
Health authorities said that a passenger who arrived on the island from the United States last week had tested positive for the virus.
The unidentified person was among a group of Grenadians who returned via a chartered JetBlue flight last Wednesday.
Grenada’s first COVID-19 case was announced in March and it was an imported flight from the United Kingdom. The government subsequently shut down the borders, including declaring a state of emergency in a bid to curb the spread of the virus.
Since then it has reopened its airport to regional and charter flights, with international commercial flights schedule to land there from August 1st.
