Ramsammy to Harmon: No fake vaccines entered Guyana
– 61,000 persons fully vaccinated with Sputnik V
– as GAWU, FITUG bash Harmon for reckless, irresponsible statements...
But even as Government rejects Harmon’s demand to suspend the use of the Sputnik V vaccine, Health Advisor Dr Leslie Ramsammy on Friday called out the Opposition Leader over his hypocrisy after he admitted to being fully inoculated with the very vaccine, which he requested.
He also revealed that several other Members of Parliament from the APNU/AFC coalition as well as his own family members took the Russian-made jab, which some of them specifically requested.
According to Ramsammy in a statement, of the more than 227,000 Guyanese who have received their first dose, over 150,000 of them have taken the Sputnik V vaccine with about 61,000 persons being fully vaccinated.
He added too, that while a handful of persons who took the first dose alone have tested positive for COVID-19 – having been infected prior to being vaccinated – not a single person with both doses of the vaccine has contracted the life-threatening virus.
Thanks for posting this article DG.
I was not aware that Harmon and other members of the opposition already took the Sputnik vaccine. Why were opposition members ok with a vaccine that is not approved by WHO and now profess this is now a requirement? Were they not aware of this fact and if this was indeed an important requirement why did they not do their diligence before getting the vaccine. Certainly does not show well on their own competence.
While they are now asking the right questions why did it take them so long after thousands of vaccines have been distributed? Again goes to competence. Unfortunately their naked political opportunism may end up costing lives by encouraging hesitancy.
I started thinking that these guys were waking up out of their slumber. Turns out they are just sleep walking.
