Caroni first for vaccines

THE EDITOR: Chief Medical Officer Dr Roshan Parasram spoke gently but one could sense his concern regarding the number of covid19 clusters in County Caroni.

To cut a long story short, it would seem that the citizens County Caroni, in its entirety, should be prioritised to receive vaccines first. There are too many bars and restaurants in Caroni waiting to go back fully on stream. Caroni people cannot afford any sick behaviour regarding covid19 protocols. Crapaud will have to close Caroni borders.

It is my unsolicited view that with all those candlelight vigils, citizens gathering in their thousands, we could see a spike in cross infections of the coronavirus. Two sayings in local parlance come to mind: “those who cannot hear will feel and “take in front before in front takes you.”

Tobago is almost squeaky clean. In Trinidad, the police are overworked enough as they are chasing behind those stick-break-in-their-ears people.
