The tenth person to test positive for the Delta variant of the Covid-19 virus in Trinidad and Tobago did not travel to, or out of the country.

THE much-anticipated legal proceedings involving the question of whether there was an error in the appointment of Gary Griffith as acting Commissioner of Police is already facing its first hurdle.
