ABS reportedly cancelled an interview with Dr. Joey John last night as the government continues to express dissatisfaction with how he revealed information on coronavirus cases.
According to reports, Dr. John was scheduled to appear on state media at 8 p.m. but told the Doctor at 4 p.m. that the interview was cancelled.
ABS has not said why it cancelled the interview.
Yesterday, prime minister Gaston Browne criticised the doctor for revealing information about corononavirus testing on his own.
“You have to understand that when you dealing with health issues there is a level of confidentiality that should not be breached,” the prime minister said on radio yesterday.
“I don’t believe he did this purposefully, but I just want other health officials to understand that they have to be more cautious in their public articulations about health issues.
“It was not appropriate for any health official to be going to the public and giving that type of information to the public, it has to be centralized.
“And maybe it was done out of exuberance and we hope that there will not be any such repeat from Dr, John or any other health practitioner in this country” Browne said.
