Three birthday parties on the sister isle of Tobago are being blamed for their recent uptick in cases.
Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh revealed today that “Tobago is seeing, in our view, a disturbing and significant upsurge in cases. And the contact tracing has revealed a very disturbing series of events that took place in Tobago with the help of people from Trinidad.”
He announced this during the Health Ministry’s virtual press conference on Saturday morning.
There were birthday parties in Tobago on November 22 which led to five covid19 cases and one death.
Then, on November 28, there was another birthday party leading to five more cases, and another on December 8 which led to one covid19 case.
A total of 11 cases and one death.
The Minister said they are very concerned as citizens are not heeding the advice to not host large gatherings
