Minister of Health Terrence Deyalsingh says that as more and more citizens make their way back into the country, more positive Covid 19 tests will occur. He warned this should encourage all citizens to continue to be extra vigilant and continue to observe Covid measures put in place for the safety of the population.

Speaking at the Covid-19 media conference this morning Minister Deyalsingh said the figures so far are a good example of this. He said this signals the need to properly manage the flow of persons that are allowed back into the country.

The Minister said while he empathises with all cruise ship employees who have expressed frustration with quarantine measures that have been imposed on them, that move is necessary.
