Posted by Adrian Delia on Sunday, March 22, 2020

PN and Opposition leader Adrian Delia said that we need to fight the fear coronavirus is imposing upon us and we need to fight it together.

While delivering his political message on Sunday, Adrian Delia said the present situation may pose a threat to those already facing mental health and solitude issues. Adrian Delia said that despite we need to observe social distancing we must not stop contacting our family and friends. He said that the media should provide programmes that tackle mental health.

The PN leader Adrian Delia the ‘mini-budget’ announced by the government is not enough and this is not only being stated by the Opposition but especially by the social partners representing the various economic sectors.

He said that everyone knows this mini-budget is not a ‘generous one’ as the government has described it.

Delia said that the financial aid to businesses in order to safeguard jobs is needed now and not later or in the coming days. Adrian Delia said businesses are crying out for help.

Adrian Delia referred to the meetings the Nationalist Party is holding with the main stakeholders to discuss with them the way forward for the country in view of the coronavirus situation.

He then referred to what opinionist Manuel Cuschieri recently said about the way businesses are reacting to the coronavirus situation. Adrian Delia condemned Cuschieri’s comments when he said that businesses are not showing compassion towards their employees.

The PN leader said that this not the time to look at the surplus the economy might have registered but we need to address the concerns of each individual.
