Jamaica, like every country in the world, is suffering through the Covid-19 pandemic. As a Small Island Developing State, we are used to being buffetted and battered by world events and don't waste a lot of time griping about it. However, this one is bad and for the first time ever we had to temporarily shut our borders to everyone - Jamaicans overseas as well as tourists.

The University of the West Indies (The UWI) Mona Campus today August 31, 2020 received confirmation of a positive COVID19 case. The individual is a member of staff, who works in a specialised area with no contact with the public or other departments, and has not been on Campus since August 25, 2020. 

You the class of 2020 will graduate as the first “Post-COVID” generation; the region will need you more than ever.  Our economic and social development will require larger numbers of academic and technically trained citizens. This generation will be the ones called upon to take us ahead on the journey as we navigate through to the other side of COVID-19.

The great and unforgettable Temptations sang: “It was the fourth of September; that day I’ll always remember (yes I will);

For that was the day my Daddy died”.
