600 rooms needed for recovering COVID-19 patients

Published on March 24, 2020 by

THE Government has issued an appeal to Jamaicans for help in securing facilities to accommodate people recovering from the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in order to free up space in isolation wards at hospitals for patients in need of specialist care.

Health and Wellness Minister Dr Christopher Tufton made the appeal at a news conference yesterday at Jamaica House, after a lengthy meeting of the Cabinet at which measures implemented to stem the spread of the virus were discussed.
Tufton said the health authorities need 600 rooms within the island’s four regional health authorities.

“These are rooms that have to have a bedroom and bathroom so that an individual can be relatively isolated,” he said.

Two hundred rooms are needed in the South East Regional Health Authority, which comprises Kingston, St Andrew, St Catherine, and St Thomas; 200 in the southern region, which encompasses Manchester, Clarendon and St Elizabeth; 100 in the western region, which comprises Westmoreland, Hanover, St James, and Trelawny; and 100 in the North East Regional Health Authority, which includes St Ann, St Mary, and Portland.
