The GSD has said that it is now clear that the Government are “simply playing a political numbers game” rather than considering the rights or wishes of all families or individuals. The party says the Government have apparently calculated that the issue of unvaccinated individuals visiting their family members in hospital or ERS affects a minority of individuals they are “shutting their eyes” to the problem and are “abandoning the pleas for help” by those individuals.
The Gibraltar Health Authority has announced plans to increase the availability off face to-face appointments with a GP or Nurse Practitioner at the Primary Care Centre as from Monday 19th April 2021 as part of the gradual return to a more normal service.
The Government says the GSD should “urge” people to get vaccinated in order to “protect their elderly and sick relatives, who happen to be most at risk, when they visit them”.
The Government says it has provided “hundreds of new homes for our people with hundreds more on the way”.
