Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has revealed that another Dominican has succumbed to the COVID-19 virus.
This would bring the number of confirmed deaths to THREE.
Mr. Skerrit made the announcement as a guest on DBS’s Talking Point programme on Friday.
This comes one day after a Pointe Michel man, Sylvester Jno Baptiste, the father of veteran journalist Carlisle Jno Baptiste, was confirmed to have passed from COVID-19.
Meantime Mr. Skerrit has reiterated his ongoing calls for citizens to get vaccinated to stem the spread of the virus.
He said Dominica will soon roll out a vaccination campaign for children 12-17 upon receipt of a supply of the Pfizer vaccine from the United States.
