This step is all in an effort to help in the creation of an all inclusive society which we are promoting,” she added.According to Murphy, it further strengthens the quest to ensure that the rights of persons with disabilities are promoted and protected.The EC $10 notes with the Braille features are now in circulation and are available at the commercial banks in the ECCB member countries.

London: Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton has called people — who are not following advice on social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic — as “irresponsible and selfish”.“I’m praying for my family’s safety each day but I’m also praying for you out there,” BBC Sport quoted Hamilton as saying.The 35-year-old Briton added: “There are people out there still going to clubs and bars and large gatherings, which I feel is totally irresponsible and selfish.“There is nothing we can do about it either way except try to isolate ourselves, stop ourselves from catching it and spreading it.“I’m praying for those working at the local store, deliverers, doctors and nurses who put their own health at risk to help others and keep the countries running.“Those are the heroes. Please stay safe, people,” he further said.Hamilton has put himself in self-isolation after coming in contact with two people who later tested for novel coronavirus.
