Is Haiti mismanaging Coronavirus Response?

On Wednesday, the Ministry of Public Health and Population (MSPP) announced the confirmation of 63 cases of Covid-19. This brings the results to 596 positive cases. Only 4 cases separate Haiti from a toll of 600 cases of coronavirus. 

The death of another person has also been reported. The total number of deaths now stands at 22 versus 21 people healed. But the management of the authorities seems to stop at this level. Awareness campaigns are almost at a standstill. No information about a possible treatment protocol or about home care.

In the vast majority of the countries that are fighting coronavirus today, the authorities communicate a lot with the population. It’s sort of the safest way to fight the virus. 

But in Haiti, state authorities operate differently by communicating very little with the population. What is even more surprising is that this communication can only be summed up in the popularization of data that is impossible to justify or really measure. 

MSPP officials find it normal to provide only figures as part of their management of the disease, without saying anything about the people healed or the death conditions of those who died from the disease. If it is true that it seems a little difficult to communicate on the medical history of all those who have died, but as far as those who are cured are concerned, it is easy to communicate on the treatment protocol adopted. In its report, the MSPP confirmed the healing of 21 people. 

So why does the population not have the right to be informed of the treatment protocol adopted? Other countries, including China, the United States, Morocco, Russia, Iran, Belgium, Italy, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Romania, India, South Korea, etc., have approved antimalarial treatment for Covid-19.Continue reading.
