(Inews Guyana) Guyana’s President Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali has assured that strong protocols will be put in place and enforced before his Government moves to fully reopen the country.President Ali gave this assurance during an emergency multi-stakeholder meeting held recently, where he emphasised that any decision taken will be made to ensure a crucial balance is met and only after careful consideration of all of the factors.“The balance requires very strong protocols and I think, therein lies the trick to this pandemic; the protocols and enforcing the protocols.
