Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre has urged the people of Saint Lucia to follow the COVID-19 protocols in a post on his official Facebook page, asserting that active cases and deaths remain too high.

“For another 2 weeks, we have extended and slightly amended the COVID-19 protocols as our active cases and deaths remain too high. I urge you to follow the confinement protocols from 10 PM – 4 AM on Mondays – Saturdays and Sundays at 6 PM. Please observe all the protocols,” Pierre stated.

“Whatever you do this weekend, please be safe on the roads and during your daily activities,” the PM urged.

On Friday, Saint Lucia reported 114 new cases of COVID-19, seven new COVID-19 deaths, and one more COVID-19 related death.

  1. Mr Pm just do what to be done cause if you don’t in the coming months I see our economy is d
    Going to take a nasty blow our health sector is really drain what is left of the carcar dans we have left in the treasury. So st begging and do what is needed to be done.

  2. Saint Lucia has two options…either get vaccinated or pray to the sky gods to save you..and let me add the latter option is a useless pointless act since for a nation as religious as Saint Lucia, the sky gods did not see it fit to reward your piousness… therefore get vaccinated…the science works…

  3. There is no mention of vaccination. Have we given up on the efficacy of vaccines to reduce serious hospitalization and death?

  4. PIERRE THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK ST LUCIA DON’T HAVE COVID19 SOME LUCIANS I SAW THEIR FACES ARE SO SWOLLEN LOOKS LIKE THE RUM..AS FAR YOU DID A BAD JOB WITH THE VIRUS

  5. Israel scientists say they have gathered the most convincing evidence to date that increased vitamin D levels can help COVID-19 patients reduce the risk of serious illness or death.
