Golding calls for Private/Public Partnership to manage COVID Crisis


Opposition Leader Mark Golding has called for the establishment of a private public sector committee, tasked with managing the procurement and distribution of oxygen.

This was one of a raft of suggestions on managing the Covid crisis made by Mr. Golding, during an address to the nation, last evening (August 31).

It comes in the wake of reports that hospitals had run low on oxygen to give Covid patients in recent days and the subsequent arrival of a shipment of bulk oxygen, that is expected to last at least a week.

Mr. Golding chastised the government for what he described as poor planning for adequate supply of oxygen.
