Health and Wellness Minister Mary Isaac has expressed confidence that as long as people follow the COVID-19 protocols, she does not anticipate another COVID-19 spike during the Christmas period.

“But if we continue to behave as though we don’t have COVID and we are seeing most of the positive cases now are coming out of the quarantine population, we must not let our guard down,” Senator Isaac told reporters Thursday.

She declared that people must continue to follow the protocols.

The Minister made reference to the situation in Taiwan.

“With so millions of people and look at the number of cases that they have, although they are closer to China in terms of proximity than ourselves,” Isaac observed.

“So you can see that the protocols work and this is the best defense against the Coronavirus,” she explained.

Taiwan Thursday reported two additional imported cases of COVID-19, bringing total cases to 625 since the pandemic broke out.

There have also been seven deaths from the virus according to news reports.

The country has a population of some 24 million people.

Taiwan’s careful compliance with safety protocols has been credited with keeping the pandemic in check.

As of Thursday, Saint Lucia had recorded 238 cases of the virus.
