  1. Let’s not ignore that the WHO has a tiered payout system for the number of reported covid deaths. We’re 15 away fron that 250 case payout..

  2. Instead of the kindergarten announcements from our CMO, here is the minimum level of communication, which adults in St. Lucia need to reconcile her drain on the public purse, in her role to provide honest stewardship of our health affairs:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYLbJ0H8zdc

    The details in the mini video lecture above confirms the relevance of my previous post in response to the PM’s New Year’s Message to the nation:

    “”This Omicron variant is less deadly but it spreads very very fast…”

    Very, very true, but the “less deadly” part of the phrase should be examined with laser-like focus:

    Instead of preaching gloom and doom regarding Omicron, the incompetent medical authorities and clueless politicians should be encouraging contagious Omicron carriers from the UK to visit St. Lucia all-expenses paid (call it Omicron tourism), in order to ensure we infect as many St. Lucians as possible with the Omicron strain.

    Why? Omicron’s “less deadly” properties makes it present itself as the common cold; the lungs are not infected. It is so highly contagious that when most St. Lucians “catch” it, they would acquire natural immunity from Covid-19, and the pandemic in St. Lucia would come to a screeching halt!

    St. Lucians, ask your politicians and medical authorities why they they want this pandemic to go on forever. Are they being moronic (anagram of omicron), or is there a hidden agenda at play?”

    Analysis of this video lecture challenges me to change my view that the pronouncements of the CMO regarding Omicron are the results of a kindergarten mind. I am sure that the CMO is well-informed about these studies out of South Africa; showing that individuals infected with Omicron develop immunity to Delta, as well. So, why the lockdowns, and why not promote Omicron tourism as a means to curtail the pandemic? My belief is that she has chosen to follow (or was forced to follow) the path prescribed by Big Pharma for generating exorbitant profits (Pfizer: US$31billion – 2021; US$33billion – projected for 2022) for the next 20 years, by making sure the Delta variant predominates in St. Lucia, until the Fauci gang bio-engineers another variant to defeat Omicron (which was most likely bio-engineered in China – see my previous post above).

  3. St. Lucian are by nature indiscipline and law breakers we know and understand one thing the whip on our backs. And every country that has done well economically and socially for it’s self has had a strong educated and active police force.

    Not reactors to incidents but an active presence. The success of every Government relies on a functioning Civil service. Every failing government continue to ignore role of functioning police force.

    Therefore government can continue to play games with the social issues as they want and think we are building a better state.

    There must be restriction that is felt throughout all levels of society and then we will begin to brag.

    Please study countries like Singapore, Japan, South Korea , China, Sweden etc etc.

  4. This country fell completely apart the moment those jokers got into power. Roads unfinished, protocols all over the place. There’s no money left, yet the public voted in the government that promised you the earth. Wake up St.Lucia. This really was an example of ‘Better the devil you know’ if your not vaccinated your going to destroy this beautiful country. Look at the UK. 200,000 cases a day but no ones dying. It’s a common cold over there now. Thank god the tourists do come in an prop up our pathetic attempt at a vaccination rate. But you will still queue up to get tested? Why? Another excuse for a holiday this country cannot afford….SMH. Remember the last time you got a cold? You probably just got on with it. Now you’ll queue up in droves with other infected idiots.

  5. Is it me or is there a deafening silence from the labour die hard supporters. Where are the ones you’d see at every protest, fighting for de party? Heard many were given a kick to the curb; used, forgotten and rejected. Heard some even turn like milk. Look what labor do their own if you think is not you they will do worse. Look what labor do their supporters hehehehehe……supporters can’t even be bothered to defend anymore.

  6. OMG an 84 year old passed away. 23 people of 773 need medical attention for a DEADLY disease! In other news water is wet and people are seeing through this.charade.
