    “These equipment and supplies will be used to support the Chinese’s Medical Team based at the Princess Margret Hospital, to provide more advanced medical services for the people of Dominica.”

    what i read from this is de obvious…..these equipment is specifically for the Chinese Medical Team………..i feel personally insulted. Government officials don’t use de PMH…..they seek medical attention outside of Dominica.
    what is de responsibility of de administrator st the hospital anyway?
    I think that she and de ministry of health has failed us ….with a bold face to.
    de Chinese medical team solely is hired by the government to provide more advanced medical services for the people of Dominica??????

    our government cannot help but to expose it’s failures in a bold face way…….while people walking with their eyes closed.

    Our health related matters should not be left solely in the hand of the Chinese Government!!!!!!!
    DR DR PM government is a sorry loser

    Every little counts. To all the countries and donors that give generously to Dominica without strings attached we should be grateful. Having said that, we should do much more for ourselves. We should never rely so heavily on the good consciences of outsides entities to sustain us. This once proud nation that led the sub-region in sports, agriculture, human resources has now been reduced to mendicancy. It’s now subsisting on donations, debt forgiveness, grants and alms. It HURTS all true patriots!

    That donation was an insult. Beggars are not choosers true, but this meager pittance is not worthy of public acknowledgement. :-?

    The government should have invested in those equipments many years. The cost of purchase is peanut, it clearly stated the equipments is for use of the Chinese medical team at the hospital so our doctors are not going to be trained to use those equipments. We all know Chinese don’t teach others to understand their language and more importantly the information/ manual is written in Chinese.
    This is a typical example of how backward this government is with a lack of foresight.
