Deyalsingh said, “Avoid home gatherings as much as possible.”

He gave a story of his daughter, a medical doctor, who is in England, attending to a grandfather badly affected by Covid-19.

He contracted the virus by attending the home birthday party of his five-year-old granddaughter who was asymptomatic at the time.
