AGILE detected the long GRB 190202A first reported by Swift in Lien et al.,
GCN 23830, in the scientific ratemeters of the Anti-Coincidence (50-200
Super-AGILE (SA; 18-60 keV) and Mini-Caloremeter (MCAL; 0.4-100 MeV)
The event position was not exposed by the AGILE Gamma-Ray Imaging Detector.

The low significance event lasted about 15s in the three light curves with
SA one starting about 8 s before the trigger time and the MCAL one about 10
s before.

Further analyses are still in progress.
