Story Published

The Nationalist Party said that the increase in the number of active cases of Covid-19 is worrying and is far removed from the picture the Government has tried to paint that it is managing the pandemic.

During a press conference addressed by Stephen Spiteri and Clyde Puli, it was stated that if something is not done quickly, we will be facing a crisis and the collapse of our health sector.

Dr Spiteri, the Opposition spokesman for health and Covid-19 response, said that contact tracing has failed and that if the PN was in Government it would increase its resources for this sector to be able to cope with the increase in demand.

He said that there is a need for serious enforcement and that if the authorities relax, all control will be lost. Speaking about the vaccination programme, Dr Spiteri said it needs to be more efficient and transparent with priority given to those who need it the most.

Education spokesman, Clyde Puli focused on the current situation in schools and said that Covid has increased absenteeism.

He added that if we come to the point where we have to close the schools, the Government is not prepared to provide the necessary education. He said that children cannot lose more educational content and stressed the need for a clear plan about exams and end of year assessments.
