Unrest in Curaçao about infected doctor

In Curaçao, great concern has arisen after a member of a group of 85 American medical specialists was found to be infected with the coronavirus. The doctors, together with healthcare workers from Cuba, were supposed to come to help in the Curaçao Medical Center in preparation for a possible corona outbreak. All 85 are quarantined and will be sent back home today.

Some would go to work in the former old hospital, which will open its doors again for intensive care. There are 84 beds. The new hospital on Curaçao has room for 32 corona patients. The extra IC places are for patients from all former Dutch Antillean islands.

The group of doctors was made available to Curaçao at the invitation of the Dutch government. The Netherlands pays the bill.
