SWRHA: Meningitis cases not confirmed

The South-West Regional Health Authority is advising that there were two suspected cases of meningitis recently dying in South Trinidad but says, however, that none of these have yet been confirmed.

The SWRHA has, in a statement, extended its sincerest condolences to the families of the two children.

"In keeping with the SWRHA's protocols, samples to test for meningitis were taken from the patients and sent to the Trinidad and Tobago Public Health Laboratory," the statement says.
