The team of Cuban medical practitioners who government said will be lending support to the territory will be arriving in the British Virgin Islands in “a month’s time”.
Premier Andrew Fahie gave that timeline while speaking with BVI News on Monday, May 25.
He said: “The Government of the Virgin Islands is still in the process of ensuring the arrival of the Cuban medical brigade coming to the BVI to assist us in the COVID-19 fight.”
The Premier added that “more information on this endeavour will be made available shortly”.
Thirty to arrive
In a March 28 statement, Premier Fahie had announced that 30 medical personnel from that Spanish-speaking country was scheduled to travel to the territory at an undisclosed date.
When the team arrives, they will be quarantined for 14 days.
In the meantime, the territory recorded its eighth case of COVID-19 case on May 14. Patient number-eight is currently the only active case in the BVI.
