Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has appealed to Saint Lucians to put their differences aside as this country battles the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I am appealing to everyone to please put our differences aside. Let us work together and support one another,” he urged Friday in a post on his official Facebook page.
“I want to remind every Saint Lucian that sadly, this is a battle that we will be fighting alone. Everyone else is fighting their own battle. Everyone else has closed down their borders. Everyone is dealing with their own problems,” Chastanet declared.
He asserted that the only persons we can look to solving this problem is ourselves.
“We are not going to make it through this if we keep fighting each other,” the PM stated.
“Let us be disciplined, practice self isolation especially when we go out in public. It is for our own safety and that of our families,” Chastanet advised.
Saint Lucia is currently under a 24-hour curfew imposed under a state of emergency designed to halt the spread of COVID-19.
