Strictly prevent and control the spread of the new coronary pneumonia epidemic, China helps Dominica take the lead in achieving the clearing of confirmed cases
At present, the new coronary pneumonia epidemic continues to affect many countries and regions around the world. Among them, the overall prevention and control situation in Latin America is more severe. Dominica, a Caribbean country with a population of more than 70,000 in the region, has taken the lead in achieving the clearing of confirmed cases, and is now gradually returning to the economy. Many governments indicated that the staged results of the prevention and control of the epidemic benefited from China’s support and cooperation.
Dominic Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit: The reason why we can fight New crown virus cannot be separated from the strong support of the Chinese government and people. During this difficult period, China has provided firm support to its friends and partners. At the same time, China has also made due contributions to international organizations such as WHO. I am very grateful for the help of the Chinese government! Because you provided medical supplies and equipment to curb the spread of the epidemic in the Caribbean. The Chinese government is not only a true friend of Dominica, but also a true friend of the entire Caribbean. I want to say that China is an all-weather friend in the Caribbean.
On March 22 local time, Dominica saw the first confirmed case of new coronary pneumonia. The government attaches great importance to it, and immediately imposed a curfew and announced a series of strict prevention and control measures such as suspension of classes and border closure. The first time to curb the spread of the epidemic. When Dominica did not fully understand New Coronary Pneumonia and lacked the necessary epidemic prevention materials, two batches of Chinese aid Dominica medical materials including 1536 nucleic acid detection kits, 30,000 medical masks, and frontal temperature guns were delivered.

Dominica Health Minister Owen· Irving McIntyre: Seeing the truth in trouble, China is such a friend for Dominica. We would like to thank China for its assistance to Dominica in combating the epidemic of new pneumonia. No country can overcome the epidemic alone, which requires the joint efforts of the international community. The Chinese government has helped us fight the epidemic, not only with the aid of many medical teams, but also with the aid of many hospital projects, but also with the medical supplies we need in this epidemic crisis. As our friends, China has always supported us. Regardless of the hurricane or the current epidemic, China always stands with us. The Ministry of Health of Dominica and the Government of Dominica are very, very grateful for the assistance and continuous support provided by China to promote the well-being of the people of Dominica.

In addition to donating medical aids, the Chinese Embassy in Dominica has established an outbreak liaison mechanism with multiple governments to share Chinese outbreak diagnosis and treatment plans and invite local medical experts to exchange experiences. The China-aided Dominica medical team also recommended that local hospitals set up fever clinics, hospital entrance temperature tests, etc., and promote the”wear mask” protection concept. During the epidemic, the construction of the expert dormitory building of the Dominica Hospital was completed ahead of schedule, providing isolated accommodation for the local frontline medical staff. Up to now, a total of 18 confirmed cases of Dominica have been cured and cleared. The local area began to restart economic activities gradually, but people were still required to wear masks to avoid gathering. The country’s airport will be reopened in stages starting from the 15th of this month, and Dominica citizens living abroad will have priority in returning home. (Journalist Zhao Yijun)
