US Provides US$1.7 Million To Eastern Caribbean In Response To COVID-19

Press Release:- 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.

    • Well said. Ha ha ha ha ha 1.7 million to all the Eastern Caribbean and how much does St Lucia gets jokers. 837 in one day alone died in Spain people this is no joke Rome is burning

  1. St.Lucians Still taking this as a joke .Any outbreak we in Serious problems.God have to out a Helping Hand to watch over us

    • God will give a helping hand but we the people have to stop disobeying the laws and breaking curfew. Sometimes I wonder if they know what they are doing, everyone should stay at their homes and stop doing nonsense with theirselves. We have to help ourselves and let God do the rest 🙏.

  2. I was expecting better….I guess every little bit counts even when one has to share this little sum with a big group of countries…Coming from a country that has the ability to do so much more….OH WELL!!!

    • Beggars should not be choosers. That amount should purchase a fistful of paper gowns from China.

  3. No one wants to say it as is, not even the Prophets, religious wise, where is the Pope in Italy? Rome? Where is Mary?, she cannot be found so Italy is on fire well JESUS is waiting for the change, stop making a mockery of JESUS, respect for the man. Start calling on JESUS JESUS JESUS instead of Mary and see the BIG DIFFERENCE. St. Lucia precaution is important, watch out, you cannot find Mary either call on Jesus who is never absent. Step by step, day by day no one knows the HOUR. Seek Salvation from JESUS before it is too too late, not Mary or the Pope or Trump.

  4. The authorities should act more serious than this because those who disobey are putting those who are obeying in more stress, depression, anxiety. This will be easier for Mr. Corona to swipe his card on us especially the women.

    Mr. Prime Minister please please please shut down ALL businesses this week. Lucians had two weeks to prepare themselves and their families and their businesses. Save LIVES, Save ST. LUCIA because if corona gets MAD he will be worst than any storm we have ever had in the Caribbean.

    God has speared us too many times. As a man of God, PM please obey your people now. We are the Prophets of this generation.
