    • They have always answered when asked. All that’s needed is reporters ask said question at the after cabinet press briefing. Would suggest they mail the question in before. If they do not wish to wait,simply call the CMO and get an answer from her. The PM usually provides info on covid source on his Saturday program

      • Guy stop being so negative. It is an imported case. The one from the 17th had 68 imported cases, this one states 69, hence there is your answer. A transparent government
