Police are investigating an incident of a break-in at the Liberta Community Clinic where thieves reportedly made off with all of the health facility’s hand sanitisers.
The thieves also took other cleaning supplies and drinks from the refrigerator.
President of the Antigua and Barbuda Nurses Association Soria Dupie-Winston says the incident is very disheartening.
“This is something that is very disheartening, coming from a community clinic, and we hope that the perpetrator will be caught and will be put to justice,” she said.
“We have healthcare providers who are there who would be assisting persons who are ill and when unscrupulous persons in the community do these sorts of things, they show that they have no respect for the healthcare system.” She added.
The alleged burglary took place sometime between 4pm on March 23 and 7am yesterday.
