Director of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) Dr. Carissa Etienne has commended the Government of Dominica for the tremendous work done during the covid-19 pandemic to mitigate against the spread of the virus.
“I probably have not sufficiently complimented Dominica on the work that it has done as far as addressing the pandemic. You have made me proud. I think you have done a tremendous job. I believe that the leadership at the highest level, the leadership at the Ministry of Health, and the health care workers themselves and the other front line workers are to be complimented, but also the general community and so my congratulations to all of you,” Dr. Etienne stated.
Dr. Etienne called on citizens to maintain the covid-19 protocols and to not let their guard down.
“Take the virus seriously, do not let down your guard. Because this virus is serious. You need to wear masks and you need to wear them properly. We need to ensure social distancing. We need to ensure that we wash hands frequently and avoid congregating,” Dr. Etienne added.
