Frontline workers have come in for high praise from the Governor General of Antigua & Barbuda.
Sir Rodney Williams took the opportunity of the Thorne Speech to “express its thankfulness once again to the front-line workers who are involved in safeguarding the country and its people from the Coronavirus.”
He said, “the remarkable record of extremely low infections and single-digit active cases for many weeks, is not a fluke; it is not the result of luck, but of sound decision-making led by very capable professionals.
The Royal Police Force of Antigua and Barbuda, the Antigua and Barbuda Defence Force, the Central Board of Health, the Chief Medical Officer, the Nurses and Doctors, the Hospital Staff, the Emergency Medical Technicians, the Airport and Port Authority personnel, have worked as a team to keep our citizens and residents safe.
The nation conferred national honours on a representative group of front-line workers during Independence celebrations 2020, and upon our nation’s Minister of Health for superb leadership. Congratulations once more, Minister!”
