Bostic: No truth in voice note


Share post:

Minister of Health Jeffrey Bostic has dismissed as baseless a voice note circulating on social media alleging that there is community spread of COVID-19 in Barbados.

He made it clear yesterday there was no evidence of such, noting that if this occurred at any time, the ministry would immediately relay that information to the public.

“I am asking people who continue to spread malicious rumours to stop because they are creating anxiety in the country and causing the staff at the ministry to divert from dealing with legitimate COVID-19 issues to address this misinformation,” he said.

Bostic said it was important the public continued to have confidence in the public health professionals charged with responding to the health challenge, who, he added, had been doing outstanding work thus far. (BGIS)
