Cabinet will tomorrow examine the imposition of “additional restrictions” to slow the spread of Covid-19, the Premier said this afternoon.

David Burt tweeted: “The information reaching my office is that precautions around the country have not kept up and thus it is likely that there will need to be stricter enforcement.

“The Cabinet will consider additional restrictions tomorrow to prevent any outbreak to ensure our economy stays open.”

Mr Burt said that Kim Wilson, the Minister of Health, and Ayoola Oyinloye, the Chief Medical Officer, will hold a briefing at 5.45pm today and give an update on the latest “clusters” of the coronavirus.

The Royal Gazette will broadcast a live video of the press conference.
