  1. People need to realise that it will get worst because this virus was created to destroy lives. Only God can protect us from this virus and variants. We need to be wise, stay home if there is not a need to go out. Keep your immune system healthy, and pray for courage to cope.

  2. @ Ant should be ashamed of accusing SLP of bankrupting the island. Previous administration did nothing to combat crime and gun violence. Covid should not be used as a political issue. Schools and the economy need to stay open. Lucian’s need to take personal responsibility by following the protocols and health experts guidance.

  3. Lucians Don’t panic learn to live with covid19 it’s not going anywhere anytime soon..don’t let the virus stop you from your happiness..Try to protect you your family and friends..get vaccinated if you want stay home if you want wear your safe everyone

  4. The incompetence of the SLP is phenomenal.
    They ran a whole vicious political campaign for 5 years based on racism and xenophobia.
    They politicized Covid, had no alternative policies to run the country and are now floundering as they destroy St Lucia.
    Death by guns, death by Covid and they have no answers but taking care of family and friends and bankrupting Lcians. What a set of incompetent liars.

  5. Where is Musa now, who once sat on his settee at his home in early 2020 and saw St Lucia as being the lease prepared for covid-19? Now everywhere is discovering the omicron in their country except St Lucia. Yes, they SUSPECT we have it already.
