As at May 4, 2020, CDEMA’s 19 Participating States have reported 1,163 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 62 deaths.“CDEMA has maintained a high level of support to its Participating States in response to COVID-19. To this end, CDEMA in collaboration with the World Food Programme (WFP) are leading the development and coordination of an Integrated Regional Logistics Hub (IRLH).

CDEMA deeply appreciates the support of the Caribbean Confederation of Credit Unions to these efforts”, said Elizabeth Riley, Acting Executive Director of CDEMA.The logistics is being undertaken in direct support of the specialized Core Coordination Cell (Health), which has been established for COVID-19, comprising Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA), CDEMA, the CARICOM Secretariat and Pan-American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO). This cell generates hazard specific (COVID19) information which (i) drives coordination actions by cells of the Regional Coordination Centre (RCC) and (ii) facilitates the interface between existing Health Sector response coordination mechanisms.CDEMA will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and provide updates as necessary. The Regional Coordination Plan remains activated and CDEMA stands ready to support its Participating States as required.last_img read more

Leicester v Chelsea player ratings

first_img Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook He was majestic on his return after injury and still managed to be the most likely creator of a goal despite playing at right-back. His crossing is sensational, and his maturity and composure equally impressive.AdChoices广告Antonio Rudiger: 9Rudiger never seems entirely convincing in possession, particularly when pushed on to his left. There were a couple of worrying moments but his defending remained impressive and, of course, he scored two fine goals, the second of which was an immaculate far-post header.Andreas Christensen: 8The Dane was calm and in control and showed the importance of having one ball-playing centre-half to help create gaps further forward. Christensen’s distribution, short and long, is hugely impressive. The only blemish was when he was outmuscled by Jonny Evans at a corner when the defender should have scored.Cesar Azpilicueta: 6Like Rudiger he was not happy when forced onto his left side but his versatility, which allows the exceptional James to start, means it’s worth taking the hit in the short term. He was rushed into a mistake which almost led to a first-half goal for Vardy but was otherwise dependable and was as good as can be expected going forward.Jorginho: 6The Italy international showed some delicate touches and all his usual quality in tight areas during an excellent first half but was over-run after the break as Leicester spread the play in defence and created lots of space in midfield areas. It meant he was caught out of position too readily.N’Golo Kante: 7Embed from Getty Images An Antonio Rudiger double saw Chelsea earn an impressive point in a topsy-turvy game against Leicester. Here’s how we rated each Blues player in the entertaining 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium.Willy Caballero: 5The veteran Argentine made one fine save to deny Jamie Vardy in the first half but although Caballero could not be faulted for the deflected equaliser, his daft decision to come racing from goal saw him out of position for Ben Chilwell’s goal. His kicking was also dubious and his inclusion at Kepa’s expense may well be a one off.Reece James: 8Embed from Getty Images A constant presence in all areas of the pitch and as relentless as ever. Defensively faultless and full of energy.Mason Mount: 7Mount got through a stupendous amount of running, often leading the press and working as hard as anyone off the ball. His final ball in open play was often not as precise as it needed to be but he never shied away from possession and his set-piece delivery led to both goals.Pedro: 6The Spaniard was surprisingly preferred to Willian but looked far sharper than in the below-par effort against Hull. Pedro was full of running and his workrate commendable. His influence waned after the interval, however, and he struggled to make a difference in attacking areas.Callum Hudson-Odoi: 8As with everyone in a Chelsea shirt, he shone in the first half, linking up beautifully with his good friend James and posing countless problems to the home defence. He was not as influential thereafter but still looked strong and confident.Tammy Abraham: 7Embed from Getty Imagescenter_img Embed from Getty Images Gutsy stuff from Abraham who lasted more than 80 minutes despite not being fully fit. Looked dominant in the air and showed good touch, although he could not get his feet sorted in time for two good first-half chances in the space of a couple of minutes.Willian: 6Some typically threatening moments with ball at feet after replacing Pedro, but Willian could not create a telling chance.Mateo Kovacic: 7Kovacic made a couple of vital interceptions deep in his own territory after coming on late when the game was in danger of getting out of control. He took a booking for the team while one surging injury-time run could easily have led to a winner.Ross Barkley: 5He had 10 minutes to make an impact but looked a little off the pace.[scriptless]last_img read more
