UWI’s Response to COVID-19


We still have containment across the whole of CARICOM with just 202 deaths since the start of the epidemic in March. Haiti and Suriname are battling to keep the epidemic under control because they share a land border with countries that have  a surging epidemic (Dominican Republic and Brazil respectively).




Dr. Clive Landis is the Pro Vice Chancellor (Board for Undergraduate Studies); and Chair of the UWI COVID-19 Task Force
