Charles updated members of the media about the THA’s readiness to ensure Tobago’s residents stay safe.

“The situation in Trinidad and Tobago is that there are no confirmed cases, and I want to thank all the medical personnel and other stakeholders for the sterling contribution they’ve made over the last couple of weeks to ensure that Tobago is well-positioned to treat with any situation involving COVID-19,” Charles said.

He emphasized the fact that the island’s health stakeholders are remaining proactive.
