Dr. Terrence Deyalsingh, the Health Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, spoke at a press conference where he addressed Nicki Minaj’s claims that the COVID-19 led to her cousin’s friend, who lives in the country, becoming impotent.

Dr. Deyalsingh seemed frustrated during the conference, as he revealed that his office “wasted so much time” researching the claim, which he said ended up being untrue to his knowledge. He explained, “We, unfortunately, wasted so much time yesterday running down this false claim. As far as we know, at this point in time, there has been no such reported either side effect or adverse effect.”
