WHO director praises Mottley
Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley came in for praise today when World Health Organisation (WHO) Director General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus gave opening remarks at a media briefing on novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Tomorrow, WHO is joining forces with many leading musicians, comedians and humanitarians for the “One World, Together At Home” virtual global special.
“This is the result of a close collaboration with my good friend Hugh Evans from Global Citizen, and the inspirational Lady Gaga, to bring entertainment, joy and hope into the homes of people all around the world, whose lives have been turned upside down by the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.
Mottley was among a number of world leaders and partners with whom the director general had spoken. She was praised for Barbados’ lead role in responding to COVID-19.
“I also spoke to the Prime Minister of Barbados and the current chair of Caribbean countries about the challenges faced by small island developing states in gaining access to test kits and other supplies. No country should be left behind.
“I would like to use this opportunity to appreciate the strong leadership of the Prime Minister of Barbados steering the response in the Caribbean,” he said.
