Haiti - Covid-19 : The distribution of 5 million masks has started
Sunday, Prime Minister Joseph Jouthe informed that 5 million masks were available in Haiti and that distribution had already started at the level of public markets. He announced that the Government would work with other regional authorities to prevent these masks from being hijacked and sold by certain ill-intentioned individuals.

Jouthe congratulated the population for their ingenuity in the manufacture of artisan masks. The Prime Minister said that he really wanted to fight the pandemic through prevention and awareness-raising and asked the population to continue practicing hygiene measures to avoid in Haiti a situation where there would be a lot of infected people, whose some of whom will require use of artificial respirators.

In addition, Jouthe affirmed that his government respects the rules of procurement in the process of purchasing materials within the framework of the COVID-19 pandemic specifying that the amounts granted in donations recently to fight the coronavirus will not be managed directly by the Haitian state but by institutions and NGOs.
