    UWI has received approval from the Health Ministry to participate in the WHO’s Solidarity Trial.

    The trial is underway in a number of countries to determine what drugs may slow the disease’s progression or improve survival rates.

    As part of the process, UWI officials will reach out to current COVID-19 patients.

    Dr Parasram stressed however that participation in the trial is strictly voluntary.

    The trial is already underway in a number of countries around the world.
