Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley believes his appeal to the public to take the threat of COVID-19 seriously and to not congregate or assemble in large groups “is falling on many deaf ears.”
In a statement issued by the Office of the Prime Minister today, Dr. Rowley made a specific appeal to officers and supporters of the UNC to stop organising in large groups of people to walk around neighborhoods.
He stated “This action provides fertile conditions to fuel an outbreak of the virus. This political activity may be deemed essential but not in this time of a pandemic”.
Dr. Rowley added that “This action of denial or daring poses a threat to the entire nation. There are many other ways to reach and influence the electorate.”
