    Doubt regarding date

    Dear Teachers,

    I have a doubt..... is it correct to start a sentence like this .... "On October 5th the Ministry of Heath announced........."
    Thanks for your help.

    Welcome to the forum.

    If you put a comma after "5th" and correct the spelling of "health", it looks OK to me.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Doubt regarding date

    In the question, it is incorrect to end a sentence with four dots. In the first, that should have been a period/full stop. In the second, "is" should start with a capital and the question should end with a question mark.
