A student who returned to Trinidad and Tobago from China is now in isolation at her home.
National Security Minister Young made the announcement during the question and answer segment in the Senate on Tuesday. He said a Chief Medical Officer is monitoring the student every day.
Young was asked by Opposition Senator, Wade Mark, in light of the Coronavirus outbreak and the fourteen day travel restriction imposed by this country on passengers arriving from China, can he explain how a female student arriving from China was allowed into this country?
Minister Young also assured that the student was subject to proper screening at the airport.
