Leader of the Opposition on Montserrat, Hon Paul J. Lewis has issued a statement on the Government of Montserrat's response to the Coronavirus / COVID-19 situation on Montserrat.

Hon Lewis questions why GoM have not implemented a multi-sectoral approach to the unfolding crisis: "I question the lack of a multi-sectorial approach by the Government of Montserrat in the response to the unfolding Coronavirus (Covid-19) situation on island. I have not seen any evidence from GoM of a multi-sectorial approach in this national and international crisis."

The Leader of the Opposition also asks about the provisions for those persons who would be placed in quarantine; "A number of persons who were asked along with their households to remain in quarantine or in isolation for 14 days would like to know who and what numbers do they call to access supplies and food during this period of quarantine. Since they cannot visit the Bank for cash who will provide the food and supplies for persons in quarantine?"
