Medical Doctor, Tanya Destang-Beaubrun has called on Saint Lucians to come together in the fight against COVID-19 and reject the divisiveness of politics, race and religion.
“COVID has been in power for the past 18 months and has appointed a new minister – the Delta Variant,” she told St Lucia Times.
Destang-Beaubrun spoke in the aftermath of comments which she said were made in a private chat, but were shared publicly without her knowledge and quickly went viral.
However, she said her remarks must be taken in the context of what was meant.
“They were in response to a comment I felt was divisive and taking away from the issue at hand and it is this divisiveness which I feel will prevent us from winning the fight against COVID,” she asserted.
“Fight Coronavirus, not each other,” an impassioned Destang-Beaubrun urged in the viral voice recording that was circulated on social media and appears below.
