I have some SERIOUS doubts about those figures.


They knocking out some serious numbers of shots each hour at the National Racquet Centre. Those numbers I assume include non health centres such as the Racquet Centre.

The Health Centre walk-in scheme is for the elderly who say they can't use the WhatsApp and online appointment system. Damn if you do, damned if you don't. In the US they faced these same problems a few months ago but now they almost back to normal.

'Why is such cruelty being inflicted on our elderly? '

Opposition Leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar has again lambasted Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh for a second day of vaccine problems.

In a statement, Persad-Bissessar called on Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley to take charge of the Health Ministry and fire Deyalsingh for the "manufactured disaster" he created.

Hundreds of elderly people turned up at various health centres yesterday only to be turned away and told that there is a limit of 50 vaccines.

"It is also illogical and downright foolish to allocate 50 vaccines per health centre thereby vaccinating a mere 1800 elderly people a day when a proper plan can be implemented with the assistance of the Opposition and stakeholders to have mass vaccinations in a shorter time frame," stated Persad-Bissessar.

The former Prime Minister stated that after Wednesday's "super spreader" vaccination event the Minister apologised and said a new alphabetical system would be used.

"The impression was given that the elderly with the surnames A-E can visit a health centre today and receive their vaccines. At no time did the Minister indicate that only 50 jabs would be available," she stated.

Persad-Bissessar stated that a "nightmare" unfolded as the elderly came out in their numbers and again were chased away.

"In my own constituency of Siparia I received reports of many being turned away at the Siparia District Health Facility. The elderly stood in lines for two and three hours only to be told that there is a limit on vaccines," she stated.

Persad-Bissessar questioned why are the elderly being exposed to the virus and why was such cruelty being inflicted on them.

"It is unconscionable, reckless, heartless and irresponsible for Minister Deyalsingh to treat people in this manner and continue defiantly walking on a failed path," she stated.

"Every day we are recording double digit Covid-19 deaths of mostly our elderly population and Minister Deyalsingh must be held accountable," she stated.

"Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley must rein in his Minister and take control of the Health Ministry himself or replace him with someone who is competent." stated Persad-Bissessar.

That's the issue. It have elderly who can't even use a phone to send WhatsApp or call. Far less an online system.

What they should do is have the appointment system for some sites for ppl under 60 with commorbities at the same time though. To me they are more at risk as they unlike the elderly have to work.

Is it the government's plan to save money by getting rid of the elderly? Less elderly persons, less pension to pay.

As with everything you put forward perv24/7, you know nothing or my character. However, persons have spoken about yours and your perverted and psychopathic mindset. You accuse me of racial tribalism when you're a blind PNM supporter who constantly tries to justify or blame someone else for their corruption and incompetence using outright lies, manipulation and propaganda.

Lmao @ you have seen my character on display. You think making insinuations are going to silence me or help your cause. You have been proven by a number of users on this forum to be dishonest, manipulative and someone who spreads propaganda.

So you want persons to believe that Zoom and all these other persons coordinated in creating a false narrative about you when your character can only lead one to believe what has been said about you being a pervert and psychopath. You claiming it wasn't unsubstantiated doesn't make it so similarly how you wishing it wasn't true doesn't make it so.

What you should have left was those dirty websites.

From day one Trinis have not taken the pandemic as seriously as other hard hit countries. Many thought sunlight and climate would help us, closed borders would help us and improperly worn masks would help us too. Even in April old ppl were skeptical of vaccines and thought that they would all get clots and die.

It was only with the avalanche of cases Trinis took it more seriously and more stringently followed the protocols. Nearly every elderly person I know is waiting on their 2nd shot right now. To say that the population would have accepted a lockdown before Easter with 30 cases a day is fanciful thinking. Your own words bear that out and it was shared by many in society. Even recently the Opposition is wanting non essentials to return to work this week.

So don't say you were always calling for hard lockdowns early on. You were very much against it.


I agree with some of your points, I too was lackadaisical in late March/early April, though the warning signs were there. I am NOT the CMO and did not analyze the data myself. They knew and they were a month

But if you do dig up my history you will see early April I did call for harsher lockdowns. We let it slip by continuing to allow non-essential work. We closed beaches of all places first while leaving gyms open for 4 weeks. Easter weekend was April 2-5th and gyms were closed on the 29th April....tell me how that making sense?

Why don't you just accept the fact that other places are managing covid much more proactively rather than hold on to your PNM can do no run bias?

You are right you are not the CMO, nor a governing authority. Rowley may have made it look easy to call a lockdown but when he does so he has to take many things into consideration. It is easy to type away on a forum, but to be in the hot seat and make the decisions is no easy place to be.

I like my democracy and my freedom. I believe no government should be quick to take away my freedoms or call an SoE. To correct you, they closed beaches April 14 and closed gyms 2weeks later. I think is a good balance for the govt to inform and let the population make their decisions in their best interest. Only when public suasion is not working then TEMPORARILY take away freedoms.

In those Asian countries they trust their govt's more that us. In as much as I support PNM, I hold them to the same standard as anybody else. No govt should be quick to take away freedoms. PNM's management of covid-19 will speak for itself and with the accolades they have received internationally. But just how you got it wrong in the past, it should make you slow to criticise them for what they mostly got right.

Blah be blah blah LFD RFD PNM cyah do no wrong, I go defend my black JUHN Scarfy no matter what he do, even if I drowning in sheit.
