In his 13th update nationwide address on Sunday, June 28, 2020, he announced that the packages will cover July, August, and September as well.
"I announced an incentive package to motivate and express appreciation to all health workers for April, May, and June. I am happy to announce that I have decided to extend the incentive package for health workers for another three months. This means that all health workers will pay no income taxes for the next three months. ie. July, August, and September. Again all frontline health workers as defined by the ministry of health will continue to receive an additional allowance of 50 percent of their basic salary for the next three months. ie. July, August, and September," he noted.
He said issues with the packages as earlier announced for the past three m, months have been resolved with the rollout of the payment plan to begin soon.
"I know the implementation of this for April, April May June, has been fraught with some challenges cause mainly by the protracted issue of who qualifies as a front line health worker in this context. I have however been assured that all the challenges have been resolved for payment to be affected by the end of June," he added.
