Antigua Government turns to retired nurses to help in fight against COVID-19


The most recent report received by the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment from the Sir Lester Bird Medical Centre and the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA] revealed one hundred and eleven (111) new laboratory confirmed COVID-19 cases in Antigua and Barbuda as of Friday 3rd September 2021 at 6pm.

The government says as the Covid infects more people, more nurses and other trained medical professionals are required to staff the new centers that are opening to meet the needs of the sick.

The Cabinet agreed to employing more nurses, even temporarily, as the Covid-infected number rises; proper care requires additional personnel, the Acting CMO asserted.

  1. This is a good thing hiring of retired Nurses on a Temporary basis.Please make sure after they break their backs working long hours,they are “PAID ON TIME”.Not be treated like those Pensioners of Social Security,with disregard and disrespect.Working hard and getting paid for doing such works go hand in hand.Good Luck Nurses!!

  2. Are these the same people that said they sending home people if they without pay if they do not take the vaccine?

    So why they do not go and do the work?

    The nurses say they are not ready to be vaccinated now what?

  3. I hope they don’t go back unless they are paid weekly up front.

    World dictator traitor tyrant ef liar bully (HT) Gaston Browne and the rest of his cesspool gang won’t be paying them on time.
