Mia: Isolate it
This is Opposition Leader Mia Mottley’s suggestion to Government on what to do with the controversial isolation unit set up to handle major diseases including the dreaded Ebola.
Mottley recommended last night that Government should transfer the unit, which is near the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH), to some place “where it will least impact” the population.
She said it was unthinkable that at a time when Ebola was driving fear in the hearts of people across the globe, when there was no vaccine against the disease, that Government would establish the isolation unit next to a school, St Ursuline Convent.
She said when she faced the crisis posed by the burning of Glendairy Prisons in 2005, her response was not to have an alternative prison facility set up near residences but to transfer the prisoners to a remote location in St Lucy.
