Deyalsingh briefly outlined the personal struggle he endured while managing Trinidad and Tobago’s COVID-19 response, even while worrying about his own family.
“No one knew this at the time. We were very scared. But I did not miss a day's work as your MP or as your Minister of Health. It was not easy but, my commitment was to keep the citizens of Trinidad and Tobago safe,” he wrote.
He reaffirmed his commitment both as a member of parliament and as Health Minister. Deyalsingh also rubbished claims that the government lacks empathy toward citizens abroad while T&T’s borders remain closed.
Covid-19 has affected us all. Sadly it hit my family.
At the height of T&T's Covid response when there were daily medical briefings. My wife and I got some sad news. We found out that my daughter and her husband, who reside in England both got Covid.
