In response to the Prime Minister’s announcement to extend the current State of Emergency for 60 additional days, the PUP has stated that they support a 30-day extension. While the PM stated that this 60 day extension was to gradually start relaxing the current restrictions imposed, the PUP has consulted medical experts on the matter, thus forming their opinion.

In response to the Prime Minister’s announcement to extend the current State of Emergency for 60 additional days, the PUP has stated that they support a 30-day extension. While the PM stated that this 60 day extension was to gradually start relaxing the current restrictions imposed, the PUP has consulted medical experts on the matter, thus forming their opinion. According to them, the experts agree that if there are no cases for the next 30 days, it would be safe to lift the State of Emergency. Based on this advice, the PUP strongly recommends that social distancing measures remain in force, good hygiene be practiced at home, at workplaces, and in general. They also strongly recommend that the government increase testing across the country and that the healthcare infrastructure be strengthened to meet any new wave of the virus. Additionally, the PUP stated that during the State of Emergency, the land borders must remain closed and airports must remain closed to international passenger flights. The PUP also stated that food assistance programs need to be strengthened and maintained, and that the relief and assistance must be distributed according to need and not political affiliation. Finally, the PUP is calling on the Government to implement a measured opening up, as to spur economic activities.
