Opposition calls for quarantine area in western Jamaica amid coronavirus fears


The parliamentary Opposition wants the government to activate a quarantine area in western Jamaica urgently as it is a major gateway for travellers.

Shadow Minister for Health, Dr. Morais Guy contends that Jamaica’s western belt must be adequately resourced to provide guaranteed protection against the deadly coronavirus.

He noted that the greatest number of arrivals to Jamaica, enter through the western gateways, including the Sangster International Airport and the major cruise shipping ports.
