When we asked expats and global nomads in Jamaica about their experiences during the pandemic with the local healthcare system, they replied...

"The pandemic has had a significant impact on the healthcare system in Jamaica. Many healthcare facilities have had to reduce their services due to the lack of resources and staff. The government has implemented a number of measures to help protect the health of the population, including the introduction of a national health insurance scheme and the provision of free testing for COVID-19. Despite these efforts, the healthcare system has been overwhelmed by the number of cases and the lack of resources. Many healthcare workers have been overworked and underpaid, and there have been reports of shortages of medical supplies and equipment. The government has also implemented strict social distancing measures, which have made it difficult for people to access healthcare services," explained one expat living in Jamaica.
