St. Vincent and the Grenadines (News784) – Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves says SVG is preparing for the worst as the Delta Variant of COVID-19 takes hold in the Southern Caribbean.
Gonsalves speaking on Friday, 3 September, said that health officials are checking on the country’s COVID 19 supplies and equipment to see what more would be needed.
“What are the things which are of focus for us? Ventilators, we have to see how many we have in our possession, those which are working, and we are ordering more. Oxygen. You see that problem in Jamaica”?
“IV stands, beds, wheelchairs, trolleys, sheets and suction machines. You, hear me. Drugs, including hydrocortisone and anaesthetic agents and IV fluids”.
