Opposition calls for Gov’t support for the vulnerable during lockdown period


Opposition leader Mark Golding is calling on the government to implement comprehensive measures to cater to the vulnerable population in the country that will be negatively impacted by the seven-day lockdown announced yesterday.

Speaking in a press conference this morning, Mr. Golding said many Jamaicans work day to day to survive and as such the 7-day lockdown will affect them tremendously.

Mr. Golding said the government has failed to prepare the impoverished in the country for the lockdown.
