No more scheduled COVID-19 briefings


    There will no longer be scheduled COVID-19 media conferences by the Health Ministry.

    During today’s final briefing, Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh pointed to the improved overall situation, which includes low hospital and ICU figures.

    He says they are comfortable that there is no immediate threat to the health system.

    He adds that conferences will be held in the future, “as needed”.

    Today as well, the Health Ministry announced an end to daily COVID-19 statistical updates.

    A compilation of figures will now be issued once a week, on Tuesdays.
