Dominica: In a bid to stem the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Ministry of Health has initiated ‘Drive-Thru’ testing at Windsor Park Stadium in Roseau, Dominica.
Minister of Health, Dr Irving McIntyre said that vehicles can access the testing site by entering through the main gate on Bath Road opposite the government headquarters and turn left on entering the Windsor Park Stadium.
Following the testing, users can exit the stadium from the riverside entrance. At the same time, results will be received by the persons electronically.
“We express our deepest thanks and appreciation to GMED Global: a US-Based firm which delivers Healthcare services worldwide. Besides training of our health care providers and donating Antigen test kits, GMED Global also donated an ultra-low vaccine freezer worth US $300,000,” said Health Minister.
He reiterated that people continue participating
“It is extremely important that we continue to avail ourselves for vaccination and adhere to the public health and social measures,” he added.
Dominicans applaud the initiative by the government as Michael ProphetSamuel said in a message “I applaud the effort to upgrade the testing mechanisms but I don’t like the idea of persons receiving their test results electronically. It will be more tedious to do meet up with someone who has tested positive and therefore contact tracing can be problematic.”
In reply to this, Minister McIntyre said that only negative results will be sent electronically. This means that people who get tested positive would be taken into isolation, and those with symptoms will be admitted to the hospital.
