United States Government Provides US$1.7 Million To Eastern Caribbean Countries In Response To COVID-19


The United States is mobilizing all necessary resources to respond rapidly to the COVID-19 pandemic, both at home and abroad.

A total of US$1.7 million will be made available to governments in the Eastern Caribbean, which will assist countries in the region to scale up their risk communication efforts, water and sanitation, prevent and control infections, manage COVID-19 cases, strengthen laboratories, and surveil the spread of the virus.

This builds upon decades of U.S. investment in the Caribbean, including more than US$236 million in health assistance over the past 20 years.

This is part of a comprehensive response, as the U.S. government leads the world’s humanitarian and health assistance in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The State Department and USAID are providing an initial investment of nearly US$274 million in emergency health and humanitarian assistance to help countries in need, on top of the funding already provided to multilateral organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF.

This assistance is part of a larger U.S. government global response package across multiple departments and agencies, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The United States continues to be the single largest health and humanitarian donor for both long-term development and capacity building efforts with partners, and emergency response efforts in the face of recurrent crises. This money has saved lives, protected people who are most vulnerable to disease, built health institutions, and promoted the stability of communities and nations.

  1. Wickedness. You owe us reparations Usd $ 22 mil per person and that’s all you send? Dived that by the islands and that cant even sustain us for a day. This is why Yahusha is dealing with now. Down with Babylon. My people rejoice your redemption is nigh.

  2. 1.7 million divided between 11 oecs nations (about 155K USD each). Perhaps we can use it to buy more ventilators. At 25K USD (NY Governor says its now 45K each due to high demand) each that should get us about 6

  3. This must be a joke LOL I know the world boss is going to tell them what they can do with their peanut change.

    Look at what Cuba is giving the world. And if they did not have sanctions on Venezuela, I am certain they would have been right there with us like they have been for 20 years.

    The Pm said his government already spent many millions and the US is taking a photo for 1.7 mil to split 11 ways.

  4. @ Cry Why would the US owe us reparations? I think you meant Britain.

    Let’s remember that it is the US citizens Income taxes that the US is redistributing to people that do not pay any.
