United State Ambassador to Guyana, Sarah-Ann Lynch has tested negative for the Coronavirus, the embassy said in a Facebook post minutes ago.
It stated: “The U.S. Embassy is pleased to notify the concerned public that Ambassador Lynch tested negative for the COVID-19 virus. Stay health during the pandemic by following all Ministry of Health protocols.”
The ambassador underwent a test after it was revealed that Guyana’s Foreign Affairs Minister, Hugh Todd was confirmed as having the virus.
Todd is believed to have come in contact with several foreign dignitaries in recent days. The Surinamese President, Chan Santhokhi, who met with Todd at a recent event, was also tested. His results were negative.
Government ministers were also tested. Those results have not yet been made public;.
