Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley addresses a political meeting in San Fernando last night.

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley has said that if the United National Congress (UNC) is allowed into government, it will open the borders to its friends and bring more cases of COVID-19 into this country.

He was speaking at a virtual meeting in San Fernando.

He told supporters that the UNC’s proposed approach to handling of COVID-19 is “irresponsible”.

He said it would take just two weeks to overturn all that has been done by the government to contain the spread of the virus.

“Ladies and gentlemen, these are dangerous times. These are dangerous times. We still are in a pandemic. And it will take 14 days…14 days to capsize everything that we have done. They (will) open the border and try to please their friends outside or inside for that matter and the same way you’ve been seeing drip by drip and people coming in here and bringing the virus, let them be irresponsible,” he said.

Dr Rowley also lashed the UNC’s attacks on Chief Medical Officer Dr Roshan Parasram whom, he said, came to the fore with his health experts team.”

That team gave us guidance to help us keep T&T safe but the UNC sue Dr Parasaram 17 times! They didn’t stand with country!”

“When you have an argument outside of the political arena. They go to the court, they’re unpatriotic—all they’re concern about is getting rich and when you get rich and police come looking for you, don’t cry. Anytime police come to my door, they come to lime as I have plenty police friends—or they come to ask about you!”
