Haiti - Health : Quarantine missed for 180 Haitians repatriated from the Tuks-and-Caicos Islands
Sunday, 180 Haitian boat-people intercepted last week by the authorities of the Turks-and-Caicos Islands with the assistance of the American Coast Guard were repatriated in 2 military planes at the airport of Cap-Haitien.

Upon arrival, our compatriots were placed in a temporary shelter in Cap-Haitien, in the Petite-Anse area while awaiting quarantine for 14 days, according to the words of Kerwing Augustin, the Regional Director of the National Office for the Migration (ONM).

However, due to lack of means, resources and isolation sites, the ONM was unable to make this quarantine effective. Barely a few hours after their arrival, most Haitians had left the temporary shelter to disappear on the streets of Cap-Haitien, without any intervention from the police...

Some Haitians who remained in the temporary shelter were still there in the evening, without food, without drinking water and without toilets, fearing to venture into the city and expose themselves to the stigmatization of the population, believers infected with Covid-19...

In addition, agents of the Haitian National Police arrested 4 people accused of having organized the clandestine trip of 225 Haitians in two small boats bound for the Turks and Caicos Islands.
