PM Says Border Has to Reopen, Country Can No Longer Be Locked Down

John Briceño

Land border are set to reopen on January first, but there are concerns as to what measures are being put in place to shield the population from another COVID-19 outbreak.  Those measures are yet to be announced. We asked PM Briceño for an update.


Prime Minister John Briceño

“There are a number of measures. But, I will be having a meeting with the Minister of Health on Wednesday afternoon, as well as immigration, to be able to have a better understanding as to what we want to do. Obviously we have to be very cautious and careful about the omicron virus. But, the point is that it is going to come here. We can’t run away from it. We can’t afford to lock down the entire country like we did before. We can’t afford it. It is going to set us back even more. So, we just have to open up and be as cautious as we can. The most important thing is to get vaccinated. That is the only way we can help you. And those who have already gotten vaccinated get your booster shot.”
