Convent not giving up fight

The Ursuline Convent dispatched letters yesterday to Prime Minister Freundel Stuart and Minister of Health John Boyce calling for the removal of the proposed Ebola isolation centre at Enmore Clinic from next to the school’s compound.

The latest development comes hours after the Minister of Health, in a televised statement, said the centre would be up and running from November 1.

But school administrator Susan Chinnery told the SATURDAY SUN last night their campaign to have the centre relocated would continue.

“We are not taking it (Boyce’s announcement) seriously and he (Boyce) didn’t say anything definitive. We are not moved by the minister’s speech,” she said.

“The fact that he (Boyce) hasn’t come out and mentioned us is significant and he has not downplayed our concerns,” Chinnery added. (TS)
