    Transparency please. How many were new tests from incoming flights; how many were 3 or 7 day retests from past incoming flights; how many were local tests etc. Is there some reason for the secrecy? Yes it’s great to have no positives, but show you have the public’s interests at heart. Be honest and provide more information.
    On Thursday when hopefully a reporter will ask the question, I don’t want to hear the Minister respond with her usual ‘I don’t have that information”. It is far more relevant that the “R” is below 1 because with no new positives of course it is. So many of the questions raised in the updates are totally irrelevant and nothing to do with the pandemic.
