[world politics news]

Barbados today begins a 15-day mandatory lockdown during which all citizens will be screened for covid-19 and dengue fever.

During house-to-house contact, government officials will administer antigen and PCR testing, and gather geo-tagging information for every residence, said prime minister Mia Amor Mottley during a televised address this morning.

She assured citizens that there was "more than enough food in Barbados," and that supermarkets and mini-markets around the country would remain open during the 15-day shutdown.
