The government has decided that an honorarium of $1,000.00 per month will be paid to the diligent and self-sacrificing nurses who are on the frontline, for as long as this crisis continues.

Just last week, the government had opted to applaud those health-workers who are placed on the frontline in the fight against Coronavirus, including nurses and orderlies, in several ways when this crisis is at an end.

On behalf of the people of Antigua and Barbuda, the government continues to express gratitude to all nurses.
