Confirmation from Police Commissioner Gary Griffith that a policeman has tested positive with COVID-19.

In a statement, the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service has confirmed that one of its officers, with a travel history, has tested positive for the COVID-19 virus and is now being treated at the Couva Hospital.

The top cop says, however, the policeman had no contact with other officers.

Juhel Browne reports.


Tobago has recorded its 3rd positive COVID-19 case, that of a 69 year old man, with no travel history, seen by a private doctor and sent with a referral for further management.

President of the Trinidad and Tobago Olympic Committee Brian Lewis believed the date was not particularly ideal but he felt it was necessary.

For the past few weeks COVID-19 cases coming into the healthcare system have been attached to a travel history as well as primary and secondary contact.
