Health Minister Dr Christopher Tufton last night reserved comment after his name got entangled in a series of social-media posts that have gone viral.

“I am taking advice on the matter and will speak in due course,” Tufton told The Gleaner.

The social media posts were widely circulated on WhatsApp and Instagram and relate to deeply personal matters.

On Twitter, ‘Tufton’ was trending in Jamaica for much of Tuesday evening.
