Pandemonium at children home over claims of COVID-19 outbreak


High chaos erupted yesterday at a children’s home in the county of Demerara after a staff who was reportedly infected with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) infected several kids at the facility.

In video footage sent to this publication by concerned residents, a number of the children from the home were seen with pieces of wood and even spade destroying several parts of the building. 

In fact, another video showed one of the children attempting to take her own life, but instead of quelling the situation, one of the persons in charge of the home, who had a stick in her hands, said, “go on the roof and jump over… I could behave like I mad tuh.”

Meanwhile, when contacted for a comment on the incident, the Director of the Childcare and Protection Agency (CPA), Ann Greene, said that there have been children testing positive for the deadly virus at various homes across the country. 

“We don’t have an outbreak at the Mahaica home. We have been having that all the time at the homes one and two people tested positive, and we take them out of the home, and that’s been happening all the time at the homes,” Director Green said. 

When asked why the kids were damaging the property, Green replied by saying that the girls are “undisciplined.”
