“As we continue to re­cord more recoveries on a daily basis [I — Ed.] urge all to continue wearing your masks, practising social distancing, sanitise your hands frequently, wash your hands with soap, and refrain from mass gather­ings in continuous efforts to achieve our zero goal,” said Minister of Public Health Richard Panneflek.

    “COV­ID-19 cases increased with eight new active cases re­corded by the Ministry of Public Health on Wednes­day, September 16”.
    Why just those statistics? Why not revealing what the sources of the infections are, what the hotspots are?
    Is it just because the government on St Maarten does not want to take new or more relevant measures???
