JDF member should be appointed COVID czar

THE EDITOR, Madam:

I agree with the Opposition’s call for a COVID czar to be appointed by the Government to manage and oversee the vaccination roll-out and other important COVID-related matters

Such a move is critical, especially now, given the crisis levels, on many fronts, that the pandemic has unfortunately reached.

Given the complex and multifaceted logistical tasks involved, I suggest that a highly respected, suitably qualified, high-ranking member of the Jamaica Defence Force staff be appointed to the highly critical, timely, and necessary post of COVID czar.
