Marshall Islands praised for ‘unprecedented’ Covid response

Posted on 29 August 2022

US-based doctors have praised the Marshall Islands for their response to its first Covid outbreak. Positive case numbers have declined dramatically this week following the record-setting first two weeks and WHO declaring the outbreak as a public health emergency.
“The Marshall Islands has exceeded most expectations to deliver testing and treatment for large numbers of people, and to provide care for those with Covid,” said Dr Richard Brostrom, the US Centers for Disease Control Field Medical Officer who arrived in Marshall Islands last week to assist the Ministry of Health and Human Services.
