The Prime Minister said the government will provide financial assistance to those most in need after the announcement of further restrictions to fight the covid19 virus.

This assistance will be until May 23, when the measures are expected to be lifted.

He said $5 million will be released to provide food boxes through the Ministry of Agriculture. Another $10 million will be given to ecclesiastical bodies to distribute to those who depend on them.

Dr Rowley said another $40-$50 million will be distributed to those in greatest need.
