    Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar says the restrictions announced by the Prime Minister will decimate micro, small and medium-sized businesses, and lead to greater job losses.

    She also believes the measures demonstrate that the government has run out of ideas on how to deal with COVID-19.

    In a release, she insisted that while theĀ Opposition supports measures to protect the health and wellbeing of citizens, it cannot support hundreds of thousands being left without the ability to take care of their families.

    She also criticized the social support promised by the PM, claiming that many are yet to receive any salary relief grant since last year.
