Health and Wellness Minister, Dr. Christopher Tufton, is rejecting criticisms that his Ministry failed to plan for the current third wave of COVID-19 affecting the country.

Dr. Tufton has come under fire after oxygen supplies ran low at several hospitals recently.

The Minister says he rejects suggestions that the government has been wandering aimlessly.

The Health Minister and his team have also faced strong criticisms about the logistics of the national vaccination programme.

Dr. Tufton says organizing the day-to-day management of the pandemic while facing criticisms has been challenging.
