Jamaica: PM RINGS BELL ON CAMPAIGN – Suspends Road Tour As COVID-19 Numbers Hit New One-Day Record

With Jamaica’s COVID-19 cases hitting another one-day record on Sunday, Prime Minister Andrew Holness has decided to suspend his political road tour a week and a half before election day, September 3.

The confirmation of that decision came from Health and Wellness Minister Dr Christopher Tufton late Sunday evening, less than 24 hours after the country’s police chief, Antony Anderson, revealed he tested positive for the coronavirus.

“As of today, he is suspending his own campaign activities, meaning the traditional approach to campaigning and he certainly is going to be asking the country and his political organisation to abide by that approach.

“… That will send a strong message to the country that this is the responsible thing to do to mitigate against possible risks,” Tufton said.
