Martinique on Tuesday welcomed 120 medical personnel from France who will help the French Caribbean territory cope with a fourth wave of COVID-19, local reports say.

The visitors, who responded to a call for help issued by France’s Ministry of Solidarity and Health, include 19 doctors and will be assigned to Martinique’s overwhelmed University Hospital and Saint Paul clinic.

On Wednesday, Martinique authorities declared that the COVID-19 situation on the Island continues to be a source of concern with over 700 new cases and 10 deaths within the space of 24 hours.

In order to stop the spread of the virus, the Island has introduced home vaccinations for residents who either cannot visit vaccination centres or are put off by long queues there.
