Doctors Without Borders Assisting with COVID-19 Testing and Mobile Health Clinics for Migrant Farm Workers in Immokalee
Doctors Without Borders normally operates in about 60 countries around the world, often ones that are famine-stricken or war-torn. But since the new coronavirus started spreading they’ve also been in the United States with teams in New York City, Chicago, and most recently the Navajo Nation Reservation.
They are collaborating with local partners including the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, the Healthcare Network of Southwest Florida, the Braden Clinic, and the Florida Department of Health in Collier County. They are also providing non-coronavirus medical consultations through mobile “virtual” medical clinics.
To get the latest on their efforts and what the overall scene is like in Immokalee right now we’re joined by the project coordinator, Dr. Adi Nadimpalli, and Adrian Alcantar, an Immokalee resident who is working with the team as a logistician.
