T&T is at risk of developing its own COVID variant.
So says Dr. Nicole Ramlachan.
Dr Ramlachan is a Geneticist and Associate Professor of Biotechnology at the University of Trinidad and Tobago.
She explained that a slow vaccination uptake can give the virus time to mutate and form another strain.
She emphasized the importance of taking the vaccine to address this possible situation.
Dr Ramlachan told Power 102 Digital that the situation could be deadly for the country.
Dr Ramlachan claimed that the country’s population is at a high risk given the demographic and lifestyle of many citizens.
She explained that the “health measures” in tandem with the vaccine is the only solution.
