Cedros Councillor Shankar Teelucksingh is surmising that there is a link between the porous borders in South Trinidad and what appears to be cases of local transmission of COVID-19.

Councillor Teelucksingh told our news team that the Government has effectively been working against itself by refusing to properly secure the island’s Southern borders. He noted that his consistents’ calls for increased Coast Guard patrols
have fallen on deaf ears. Mr Teelucksingh pointed out that the constant flow of illegal Venezuelan migrants poses a serious health threat to the nation.
