Health and Wellness Minister, Dr Christopher Tufton, says while there’re expectations for further increases in Covid-19 cases, it’s predicted there will be a peak and a decline soon after. 

He was addressing yesterday’s edition of the ministry’s Covid-Conversations virtual media conference. 

Minister Tufton says the medical teams examining the trends, don’t expect a large increase in the rate of hospitalisations from the virus. He says while hospitalisations remain low, the government is not likely to resume harsh anti Covid-19 restrictions.

Dr. Tufton says there’s no need for panic. But he says with the country’s vaccination rate remaining low, there’s need for concern.
