CARICOM says it is seeking approval from Chairman of the Guyana’s National COVID-19 Task Force (NCTF), Moses Nagamootoo, seeking the approval for the departure and landing of a chartered flight to transport the high-level CARICOM team to Guyana for the national recount.
CARICOM Secretary-General Ambassador Irwin La Rocque is requesting “approval for the departure and landing of a chartered flight from Guyana to collect the team members and return the day and similar arrangement for their return upon completion of the exercise.”
The Secretary-General has also put arrangements in place for the members of the team to be tested in their respective country, using the World Health Organisation (WHO) approved PCR COVID-19 test.
The CARICOM SG also requested for the WHO-approved PCR COVID-19 to be administered to the team before they depart Guyana.
No arrival date has been determined yet for the CARICOM team which hinges on a date for the recount.
