Haiti President Jovenel Moise called for calm, saying that his government has “always committed to transparency when it comes to managing this pandemic.” The president also warned against selling “medicines and hygiene and health products” on the black market.

Haiti was the Carribean’s poorest and most densely populated country and the arrival of COVID-19 spurred the government to implement a series of restrictive measures — such as 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. curfew, ban on gatherings of more than 10 people, closure on schools, universities and vocational schools, suspension of work in factories, closure on borders, suspension of all commercial flights, and closure on all passenger points of entry.
