POSTHUMOUS testing for Covid-19 has been done on 70 people– 69 in Trinidad and one in Tobago.

This was revealed by the Chief Medical Officer Dr Roshan Parasram at the virtual news conference on Thursday morning.

Responding to a question, Dr Parasram said, “The Forensic Sciences Centre was actually sending testing all along to CARPHA. They have sent 69 samples so far of patients that would have died, for testing for Covid-19.

“All of them were negative. We sent one from Tobago a couple days ago, that one was negative as well with a person that would have died at home.”
