Several steps are in effect to help health care workers address mental and physical exhaustion being experienced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Minister of Health, Terrence Deyalsingh, informed the parliament Friday afternoon of the various measures which have been taken to ensure medical personnel are better able to deal with staff fatigue.
Minister Deyalsingh said the Regional Health Authorities have also been doing their part to tackle the issue.
The Health Minister also complimented medical personnel for their dedication during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Minister Deyalsingh was asked by the Opposition Member of Parliament for Cumuto / Manzanilla if the health care workers may be considered for some form of monetary remuneration or even compensatory time off.
