Section 26 (2) of the Disaster Risk Management Act was the legislation used by Prime Minister Andrew Holness on March 14 to declare all of Jamaica a Disaster Area due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. That declaration, in a legal sense, empowers the government to utilize emergency powers to preserve life, property and public health, in ways typically seen after natural disasters such as Earthquakes or Hurricanes. Listen to hear how this act is being used to fight the spread of COVID19.
