Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar has sought to allay fears over her health, following concerns that she may had contact with a person who recently tested positive for COVID-19.
Hours after Dr Tim Gopeesingh revealed that he had contracted the virus, a photo began to circulate showing the two on the campaign trail.
Speaking after her appointment as Opposition Leader today, she said the photo in question was taken at least a month ago.
She also commented on legislation that is expected in the Parliament on Friday for the mandatory wearing of masks in public.
She says while she has not seen the draft, the Opposition has no objection, in principle, to such legislation being passed.
Opposition Leader, Kamla Persad-Bissessar.
