    Epidemiologist Dr Avery Hinds says T&T was able to flatten the curve, to an extent.

    Speaking during a media conference held today by the Prime Minister, he said given previous trends, the country was expected to hit 10,000 active cases on May 22nd.

    He points out however that this milestone was delayed.

    Dr Hinds said the week on week increase in cases has also been slowing.

    Also speaking at the briefing was Principal Medical Officer Dr Maryam Abdool-Richards, who says occupancy levels in the parallel health care system are down.

    According to her, this is due to a combination of more beds and less patients.

    Despite the encouraging figures however, persons are being urged to remain vigilant, as the situation is still delicate.
