Caricom highlights success of regional approach against Covid-19
Georgetown, Jul 14 (Prensa Latina) The Caribbean Community (Caricom) considered today that the success of its member countries in the fight against Covid-19 is the result of the regional approach deployed by that group.
In an article published on its website, the Caribbean mechanism also highlighted 'the rapid and deliberate actions of its leadership and the guidance and support of experts from its specialized community institutions.'
As of July 10, the 15 states of Caricom and its five associate members recorded just over 9,000 cases of the disease, 5,000 of which have recovered, and only 200 died, in a total population of 19 million inhabitants.
That balance allowed its members to be considered among the best in the world in their response to the pandemic in many global evaluations, according to the article.
It also indicates that Caricom handled with great effectiveness the challenges posed by the pandemic, which allowed it to keep the number of cases low in relation to the largest and richest areas of the international community.
The note explains that the regional approach to the pandemic is based on science and details the different meetings held at the level of heads of government, ministers and experts to coordinate actions.
In this sense, it underlines the work of various regional organizations such as the Caribbean Public Health, Caricom Implementation for Crime and Security and Disaster Emergency Management agencies.
Likewise, it mentions the Regional Security System and the important role of the Pan American Health Organization.
