Young Jamaicans Utilised To Mass Produce Masks

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to claim thousands of lives daily across the globe each day.

As a result, an increasing number of governments are urging their citizens to wear masks in public spaces in a bid to curtail the spread of the deadly virus.

Prime Minister Andrew Holness recently revealed that young persons in Jamaica are being utilised to assist with the mass production of masks.

Via a social media post, Mr Holness said:

“At a time when the attention of the world is focused on combatting COVID-19, young Jamaicans are doing their part through the HOPE programme.

“They are mass producing masks for distribution, and are at the same time remaining safely engaged in meaningful work.

“I want to caution that those who’ve chosen to wear masks, should do so observing the safety measures outlined by World Health Organization, and our Chief Medical Officer.

“Masks are only as effective as the safety procedures we follow for their use.”

Prime Minister Holness also shared the following video:
