We note that our Governments have started rolling out the vaccine in the Caribbean. Let us hope that we continue to have access to the quantity required to vaccine our small but scattered population in a timely and effective manner.
Of tremendous significance is the fact that we have had approx. 12% drop in average daily new cases. This is good news especially if this trend continues. The world debate is really how quickly the world population can be vaccinated, in particular the less fortunate countries. Let us hope that current debates and requests result in some form of equitable distribution.
