I do not understand why the Guyanese Government brags about vaccinating only 100,000 people by June. Government needs to stop playing politics with our lives. Such a slow vaccination process will only allow the COVID-19 disease to penetrate the population more and cut down lives unnecessarily.
Government must take immediate actions to save lives. Government can easily access one million COVID-19 vaccines to cover the entire Guyanese population in a short space of time. In around the middle of May, the U.S will see a surplus in its vaccine supply. This means that government should be able to at least purchase vaccines from Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson. These companies have produced COVID-19 vaccines with high efficiencies and they are in circulation throughout the world. These vaccines have been endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO). Further, I will say it again, the PPP/C government needs to stop playing politics with our lives, especially in a pandemic. To this end, the $25,000.00 GYD COVID cash grant is a political act and a total disrespect for the poor people of Guyana. What can you get with this money? I bet only tamarind balls and sugar cakes.
Government needs to treat its people right. Our fellow Guyanese are dying unnecessarily in a pandemic because the pandemic is largely mishandled by this government. Government must increase the cash grant substantially. It must also secure the best vaccines, face masks and hand sanitizers for its people. Government has our oil money. Please spend it on us. We are hurting and dying unnecessarily. Jagdeo should not be the only one who decides when and how to spend the oil money. Government also needs to conduct a survey and listen to the man in the streets. Guyanese are hurting. And even with a change of government, things have not improved for the majority of Guyanese. The only people living the good life are those from the PPP/C.
