Thumbs-up from PAHO


The Pan American Health Organisation’s (PAHO) representative for Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean is satisfied that the Barbados Government has acted prudently in deciding to keep the country’s air and sea ports open, even as it deals with the first two cases of the coronavirus here.

In an exclusive interview with the DAILY NATION yesterday, Dr Yitades Gebre said Barbados certainly had the sovereign right to make decisions on how it dealt with the COVID-19 pandemic, but PAHO would continue to work in conjunction with Cabinet and the Ministry of Health to prevent the spread of the disease.

He said Barbados had done everything right so far. (BA)
