Trinidad & Tobago: Thousands suddenly jobless: ‘No lockdown plan’

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley and his Government has no plan to treat with the Covid-19 surge and citizens will suffer from this failure says Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

The former Prime Minister stated that Rowley’s latest lockdown measures, like last year, are being done without a proper plan.

“The Prime Minister has said once again that the country has no money and therefore is unable to provide any support to businesses and individuals who would suffer in the coming weeks due to the economic impacts of these measures,” she stated.

Persad-Bissessar stated there is a pertinent need to do all it takes to protect the lives and wellbeing of our citizens, but this must be done while also protecting their ability to put food on their tables.

“The Government’s mantra that “we are all in this together” rings hollow, given that the Prime Minister spent a large part of his presentation blaming citizens for the surge in cases,” she stated.
