Director of the Pan-American Health Organization, Dr. Carissa Etienne, has expressed commendations to Dominica’s response to the dreaded COVID-19.

The Director of PAHO who featured on Prime Minister Skerrit’s Annou Palé programme on Sunday, complimented Dominica on its response to the virus.

“You have made me proud,” Dr. Etienne said. “I think you’ve 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 other first-line workers are to be complimented but also the general community and so my congratulations to all of you.”

Dr. Etienne urged Dominicans to keep fighting against the COVID-19 virus.

“Let’s keep fighting the Covid-19, it is not over yet so do not let your guards down. Let us do the things that we know how to do best and the public health measures that have been spoken, talked about, and that you know very well.”
