Health Minister: COVID-19 pandemic not over in the Trinidad and Tobago context


    The Health Minister says the COVID-19 pandemic is not over in the Trinidad and Tobago context.

    At today’s briefing, Minister Terrence Deyalsingh acknowledged a recent comment from the WHO Head that the end of the pandemic was in sight.

    He says to determine the status of the pandemic, a specific committee needs to be convened.

    Mr Deyalsingh adds that pandemics don’t have a defined end date, with illnesses instead becoming endemic.

    Recently as well, US President Joe Biden declared that the pandemic was over in the United States.
