Barbados: In the era of the COVID-19 pandemic, only warriors are the light of hope for the nation. Barbados govt will grant ‘Hazard Pay’ to Health Care Workers.
Statement for Health Care Workers:
Juliet Bynoe-Sutherland, Executive Chairman of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, declared that “We yearn to mention the public that the Government in November 2020 would have allotted Supplementary Funds for the installment of ‘hazard pay’ to QEH frontline workers working at isolation centers, AED [Accident and Emergency Department, EAS[Emergency Ambulance Service].”
Juliet Bynoe-Sutherland expressed as the National Union of Public Workers refused to have commissioned industrial action by COVID-19 frontline operators. The refusal came in compliance with a social media post. The post revealed solicitude about health operators performing their jobs by weekends and bank holidays.
On the other hand, Senior Medical Officer of Health Dr. Anton Best announced that there are modifications in the results of testing authorized categories mention in this article.
Doctor Anton declared that health authorities are executing a new testing system. This is something that they are doing in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism partners, and this is just one key point they have to make. The Ministry of Health & Wellness does not have all of the answers, so corporations are of critical importance.
They have also looked at the additional capacity that the lab needs, and this is something that they would have been working on for the last few months – because of the breaker and demand in services, they are supplementing more human resource capacities.”
Secondary and tertiary contacts would comprise Category 3. They could expect outcomes within 24 to 36 hours, while people who wanted to be tested out of general interest would be placed in Category 4 and could expect effects among 48 to 72 hours.
Following health guidelines by health authorities can only restrict the spreading of deadly coronavirus. Jack Paul commented, “Only in St Lucia frontline workers gets nothing working in this virus situation.”
