Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago Dr Keith Rowley has put a rein upon the continuous spike of COVID-19 cases on the island during the recent few days.
Regularly soaring COVID-19 cases continue to decline on the island as government authorities led by Prime Minister Keith Rowley and Minister of Health Terrence Deyalsingh has designed certain safety measures to curb the spread of novel coronavirus across the island.
Recently, Prime Minister Rowley has eased the stringent protocols by putting an ease on the number of hours to visit the beaches on the island. The PM stated that, “From Monday, January 31, beaches in Trinidad and Tobago will be open from 5 am to 6 pm, this will extend to reef tours and swamp tours with a 50% capacity.”
The government of Trinidad and Tobago is further making plans to bring the hassling situation to normalcy.
At the same time, Minister of Health Terrence Deyalsingh has further reiterated the view that, “Trinidad and Tobago’s way out of the COVID-19 pandemic is not to be determined by the number of hospital beds available, but rather by the proportion of the population that chooses to be vaccinated.”
Meanwhile, the nation on Thursday recorded 804-fresh COVID-19 cases across the island, and overall, 11 deaths were reported a day, which has taken a poll of total active cases to 18,663 and overall death rates to 3,358 to date. The number of total patients that have been under hospitalization is 492. At the same time, around 687,627 among the overall population have received both of their vaccinations. Whereas approximately 712,373 have received their 1st doses or have not yet received their vaccination dose.
At the same time, Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago Dr Keith Rowley has also set up a Committee to scrutinize the situation on the island and has also asked them to submit the report as early as possible.
