Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh said a survey which found people are generally satisfied with the government's covid19 health response bears testimony to the expertise of public health officials to manage the pandemic.
The survey, by Market Facts and Opinions – a research consultancy firm – said the response to the handling of the covid19 outbreak was generally positive.
The results of the research were released on Tuesday. The report is based on the response to surveys done from April 8-22.
Asked about the report during Wednesday’s daily covid19 briefing, Deyalsingh said there was no rulebook for dealing with the pandemic.
He added that the report is testimony to the caring of nurses and doctors.
Deyalsingh said, however, good reports were not an excuse to take a victory lap.
“Let us accept it, but we have not won anything,” he said.
