By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Prime Minister John Briceño says the government still plans to open borders on February 1.

“We still hope to open it on the 1st of February, but if there’s enough evidence and reason why we should not open it, then we won’t do so,” said the Prime Minister to Channel Five.

“I know it’s something of great concern to everyone,” said the Prime Minister.

“We continue to monitor it daily and weekly. In Cabinet we believe though that we need to be able to open the borders more sooner than later. We have closed our borders since the end of March of 2020. We’re almost coming to March of 2022, for two years. It is creating some problems for people to travel, to do business, for trade.

“We need to find a way how we can open our borders safely. And that is what we’re working on.”

Prime Minister Briceño said the plan in December was to open the borders and schools at the same time, but when Omicron hit and the numbers soared, they decided to concentrate on opening schools first.

“We felt we had to take on education. That was a priority and now that that has started and so far, knock on wood, we’ve been going fairly safe, now we can look at the borders as to how and when we can open it.”

The Prime Minister acknowledged that local businesses have benefited greatly from the lockup but said that we must open the borders.
