As he prepares to address the nation on Saturday to provide an update on the Covid-19 restrictions, Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley said that the Government must move cautiously before making such decisions.
Speaking on Power 102’s Power Breakfast show on Friday morning, Dr. Rowley said that the country’s economy must keep moving but at a responsible pace.
While he admitted that the citizens can do better to keep the positive numbers at bay, he said that we are doing well in comparison to other countries.
When asked about the restrictions, such as the closure of the borders, he said it was necessary to keep the citizens safe.
In terms of relaxing the restrictions, he said that depends on the health constraints in the country.
The Prime Minister will celebrate his 71st birthday on Saturday in Tobago.
He will also address the nation at 2:00 pm.
