Delta Variant patient spent time in public before quarantine

One of the two people who was recently diagnosed with the Delta variant of COVID-19 after travelling into T&T, possibly spent five days in public circulation before showing symptoms and testing positive with the virus.
This was confirmed by Chief Medical Officer Dr Roshan Parasram at yesterday’s COVID-19 media conference.
Having arrived in the country fully vaccinated and with a negative PCR test 72 hours before travelling, Parasram said the passenger was allowed to go home and only got tested when he developed symptoms five days later. The passenger eventually went to a health centre to get tested.
Parasram said he and his family were then quarantined pending the results. He said at least three close family members were also placed in quarantine and that they will all be discharged when two negative tests are received.
