Meanwhile, a DUP assembly member labeled some of the new corona virus restrictions introduced by the Stormont executive as “shameful and insulting”.
Paul Froove asked who was going to protect the people from the decisions of a government led by his party jointly.
The North Antrim member’s comments came after DUP Minister Edwin Boots criticized the current four-week Kovid-19 circuit breakdown. A series of actions agreed to by all five executive parties, including the DUP, last week.
Mr Putin has also called for an apology after claiming that covid-19 infection rates were higher in national regions than in unionist regions.
The four-week restrictions, except for takeaways and deliveries, forced hospitality businesses to close.
Schools were closed for two weeks after the Halloween mid-term break was extended by another week.
While many retail toilets and service providers can continue to trade, it has been suggested that those who engage in close business with hairdressers and beauticians should close their businesses.
During an assembly discussion on executive finance, Froo claimed there was no rumor or reason why businesses that implemented infection control measures should be shut down.
“The best way to support the business at this time is to allow them to trade safely,” he said. The Minister of Health speaks in the Bible at the beginning of this crisis.
“Speaker, let me speak in the Bible, it is a God-given right for a person to earn a living for his family.
“The executive has removed that right from these people and there is no understanding of the support mechanisms.”
Health Minister Robin Swan acknowledged that the regulations were extremely challenging, but said the measures were proportionate and well-established.
“My department has given the executive a detailed scientific and medical assessment over the next few weeks based on the need for critical interventions to prevent the spread of the virus,” he said.
“These assessments reflected the evidence collected by Sage, which is now in the public domain.
It is perfectly appropriate for the executive to evaluate health advice along with the potential impacts on the economy and society as a whole.
“These are very difficult decisions. I’m glad we were able to agree on a way forward last week.”
Earlier, senior Sinn Fin MLA John O’Dowd apologized for his comments about the declining infection rate.
Mr Poets’ issue was linked to the conclusion that members of the Simone Fein violated Corona rules at a ceremony in Belfast in June with senior Bobby floors, setting an example for party followers.
Mr. Boots told UTV that a lot of things started right after Bobby Story’s funeral.
“A lot of problems started after that incident and I saw people in that community breaking the rules, which is why there is a difference between nationalist areas and unionist areas and the difference is six to one,” he said.
O’Dowd claimed that Boots had effectively accused the nationalists of spreading the virus.
