COVID19 Impact on Rastafari Elders

Wherever you are in the world, our hope is that this message reaches you in good health and strength during this difficult time. There are currently 16 diagnosed cases and 1 death associated with COVID19 in Jamaica. There are also at least 100 in quarantine and 40 in isolation. Our beloved Rastafari Elders are at particular risk due to their age, many of which also have underlying health issues. We are not currently aware of any Rastafari Elders who have been exposed or infected. However, we are taking measures to ensure funds are available should Elders need to isolate or be admitted to a clinic. We are reminded by these words of His Majesty and find them relevant to the current situation in Jamaica:

“… The raising of Our country’s standards of public health occupies an important and prominent place in the plans We have prepared for the peaceful growth and development of Our nation. To improve conditions of life is by itself to benefit present and future generations, and however high the cost, this work must be accomplished. Agreements have been executed with the International Co-operation Administration for the furnishing of aid to assist Our efforts in this direction. We long ago determined that, with the help of Our people, no one in Ethiopia would lack adequate medical treatment because of his inability to pay for it, and a plan to implement the goal has already been prepared. …”
