President of the Penal/Debe Chamber of Industry Rampersad Dhalip Sieuraj said the Government mismanaged the pandemic from the start.
He told media following the Prime Minister’s announcement of a State of Emergency that “This is extremely late in coming. Had it not been from the call of T&T Chamber, it may not have come. We have moved from having a few infections per day to having hundreds of infections per day. I would really like to know why he waited so long.”
Sieuraj told GML “This Government is yet to govern. There is no excuse or reasoning about why they waited for this crisis to reach this point. It shows a lack of governance and the absence of making the right decision at the right time.
