Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh is urging the public not to get carried away by yesterday’s zero/zero COVID statistics.
Yesterday saw the country experience no new COVID cases and no COVID related deaths in a 24 hour period for the first time since early August.
While admitting that the statistics look good, the Health Minister emphasized that one day of zero/zero does not mean the end of COVID.
Speaking on the Power Breakfast Show, Minister Deyalsingh also updated the population on the worldwide search for a COVID vaccine.
Trinidad and Tobago is part of the COVAX facility which is a group of countries pooling their resources towards finding a vaccine and ensuring equitable and fair distribution of the vaccine.
The Health Minister explained that while trials are now underway of several potential vaccines, a lot must happen before the world gets to the point of having a safe, reliable vaccine.
