BVI’s response to COVID-19 – a model for the Eastern Caribbean

6

The measures being taken by the government of the British Virgin Islands (BVI) to fight the COVID-19 pandemic is seen as model for countries in the Eastern Caribbean.

This was highlighted by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) which presented the BVI’s response to COVID-19 as a “model” for the Eastern Caribbean.

 

A media statement from the Office of the Premier said the UNDP’s Deputy Resident Representative for Barbados and the OECS, Ugo Blanco, “praised the BVI’s leadership in the regional response to the COVID-19 pandemic in remarks at the UN development agency’s official virtual presentation of its joint report with ISGlobal”.

 

The media statement further said that ISGlobal representative, Carlos Chaccour, stated in the presentation that “the health and entry protocols adopted by the BVI were highly effective in safely reopening and managing its borders to restart the tourism sector”.

 

Special Envoy of the Premier, Benito Wheatley, attended the meeting and welcomed the BVI being upheld as a model for COVID-19 response in the Eastern Caribbean.

 

He reported that the territory is working to accelerate vaccination of the population.

 

“This will allow health and social restrictions and entry requirements to eventually be eased so the tourism, hospitality and entertainment sectors can fully function,” Wheatley stated.

  3. Dictator and traitor Gaston will never close our borders. All he looking to do is continually fill his pockets with the people’s money.
