PM defends decision to keep curfew in place

11

Prime Minister Gaston Browne is defending his administration’s decision to keep the curfew in place to help curb the spread of COVID-19.

“We thought the best way to manage that risk was to leave the curfew in place,” Browne said on Pointe FM.

“The protocols that we have in place they are working. People need to respect them and we need to remain vigilant,” he said.

Browne stated that the curfew was extended to give the Executive the right to impose measures in order to protect the population.

“Even unconventional measures to manage this public-health issue,” he said.

Browne stated that the introduction of monitoring bracelets is among such measures.

“Using the bracelets on the hand of these individuals will trigger a response and the officials will be able to take action as appropriate.”

  1. The virus is more active after 11:00 pm thats why the curfew is in place? Pure Nonsense.During the day is busy than the nights before and during covid, everbody is in the city conducting business, working etc. If they said to curb crime that would sound a bit more sensible and crime is still being comitted high day time.

    • No but people mingle in bars drunken and talk to eachother without keeping any distance… so yes it makes sense! Apart from the security point, less break ins etc

      • I agree it is after hours people do more crap I agree with the pm keep your ppl safe Gaston they will appreciate it in the long run …. member when we was teens and we wished we could go out like the other kids but when we get older we say boy is a good thing my parents placed those rules look today I don’t have a bad name walking around with unlike the other kids who roamed freely

  2. I guess everyone in the hospitality industry is now going to need a pass since you sometimes finish working at 11:30

  3. THE THIEVES ARE ROAMING MORE WITH THE CURFEW. ITS EASY TO TELL WHEN POLICE VEHICLES ARE APPROACHING BECAUSE OF THE STILLNESS. SO THEY JUST HIDE UNTIL THEY LEAVE THE CONTINUE TO TORMENT THE DEAR CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY.
