Media reports over the weekend say Dominica and Saint Lucia have come to the assistance of Martinique in its battle against COVID-19, by supplying much needed medication to the French-speaking Island.
St. Lucia’s Prime Minister Allen Chastanet said he had since received a thank you letter from the President of the Martinique Executive Council – Alfred Marie-Jeanne.
He explained that Martinique hospitals had run short of a particular medicine and that Dominica and St. Lucia made a significant contribution.
The head of health at the OECS, Doctor Carlene Radix disclosed that Martinique was running out of a ‘specific medication’ which she did not name.
According to Radix, Saint Lucia and Dominica quickly volunteered to use what they had in supply which would be replenished once Martinique receives supplies again from France.
“It was a really significant contribution and our colleagues in Martinique were grateful,” the OECS official stated.
