PRINCIPAL Medical Officer Dr Maryam Abdool-Richards says there will be four repatriation flights for nationals stuck abroad over the next ten days.
She was speaking at a virtual press conference on Wednesday morning.
On January 14, a flight from New York, US will arrive in TT and on January 16, a flight from Barbados.
She also said that on January 23, an “exercise” from Canada will be conducted.
Asked by Newsday if this flight was solely for the stranded farm workers there, she said there will be a flight specifically for them and another for other nationals stuck in Canada.
