Opposition Senator Saddam Hosein, and Deputy Mayor of Chaguanas Faaiq Mohammed, spent much of Tuesday 21 April 2020 distributing masks to citizens.

Guardian Media understands that 1,000 face masks were given out at the ASJA Educational Complex in Charlieville, Chaguanas.

The masks were produced by Fanaz Garments and ANSA Sports, a sportswear company owned by Deputy Mayor Mohammed.

Persons collected the masks while seated in their cars.  Senator Hosein said this allowed for the faster and safer distribution of the protective wear.
