The Republic of Cuba will support Saint Vincent and the Grenadines’ active surveillance and management of COVID-19 by sending 3 medical doctors and 12 nurses specializing in the management of infectious diseases.

The Republic of Cuba will provide 50 dosages of the drug Interferon. Interferons are a family of naturally-occurring proteins that are made and secreted by cells of the immune system (for example, white blood cells, natural killer cells, fibroblasts, and epithelial cells). Interferons boost the immune system response. An additional 50 dosages will be obtained through the OECS Pharmaceutical Procurement Program.

20-25 additional Vincentian nurses will be hired to assist with active surveillance and management of #COVID-19.

 The Republic of China (Taiwan) will offer technical and other support given their success in their local management of #COVID-19.
