Health and Wellness Minister Dr Christopher Tufton, says despite a surge in COVID 19 cases and increasing deaths from the virus, some positive signs are emerging.

He says the rate of hospitalization is decreasing.

In the meantime, Dr Tufton says the Ministry will incorporate the help of the Electoral Office and some Members of Parliament to mobilize elderly people to take the vaccine.

The second Vaccination Blitz will be staged at the National Arena this Saturday.

He says some MPs in the Corporate Area have a target number of people in their constituencies to take the vaccine.
