Dr Maryam Abdool Richards: “No system in place on which Covid patients gets beds during shortage”

The health care system may have to make a decision as to who gets the limited number of beds.
For many countries this is a reality, however health officials here are hoping that T&T does not get to that stage.
The question now is, if it does how will the triage of patients work?
And, how will health authorities decide who gets treatment and who does not?
Principal Medical Officer of Institutions Dr Maryam Abdool Richards says presently there is no policy in place to point the way forward.
