Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh appeared on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” last night, as Nicki Minaj’s tweet continues to remain a topic of discussion.
Minaj claimed that her cousin’s friend in Trinidad developed swollen testicles after taking a COVID-19 vaccine.
Minister Deyalsingh dismissed the allegation during Wednesday’s Health Briefing.
Last night, Noah again gave a rundown of the issue, including a review of some local commentary.
He then brought the Minister on for a live interview (starting at 7:39).
Noah ended by reminding that while the matter may seem funny to many, “Trinidad is a real place with real people that is going through a very real pandemic right now.”
He also lamented that as a small country, it would be easy for T&T to be defined by one negative story, and instead called for it to be known for its culture, food and its Carnival.
