Vieux Fort North MP and Health, Wellness, and Elderly Affairs Minister Moses Jn Baptiste has urged his countrymen to remain focussed and determined in the face of the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“COVID-19 has changed the world. Life as we knew it has become even more challenging. However, this is the time when we must get creative, focussed and determined to carve out new paths to constant progress. We cannot and must not fold our arms and give up,” Jn Baptiste declared in a Christmas Message.

“Our government will be there to help you – I will be there at the table of Vieux Fort North constituency leaders to lock arms with you to move our communities forward,” he promised.

The MP urged everyone to be responsible in their actions as they enjoy themselves.

Jn Baptiste also highlighted the widespread impact of COVID-19 on health care facilities, communities, and families.

“We have all been affected in some way or another whether it be in contracting the illness, having family members who died, or dealing with the untimely death of our loved ones,” he said.

In addition, the Minister noted constant restrictions on socialising and physical distancing from loved ones undoubtedly dealt a massive blow to mental health.

However, he declared that throughout the difficulties, ‘we stuck together and remained strong.’

“There were some difficult choices for all of us but we came together as one family, one nation – doctors, nurses all the support staff at our hospitals, fire officers, police officers, to slow the spread of COVID-19, at least for now,” Jn Baptiste stated.

  1. John Joseph it’s Noble Laureate the man keeps talking about. Any Grade 1 child in St Lucia know that it is a Nobel Laureate. So sad this is what we have as PM of our country and this Protocol guy who is now sending us deeper into a fifth wave. What jokers we wasted our time and effort to elect into office.

  2. How can we not give up? All of you turned your backs on the people who fought to put you in power the minute you won. When you can’t return a call or even remember the people you used to call every minute pre election how can we trust that you will be there now. Disappointed!

  3. Has anyone heard from most readied or two laureates. The latter is because every time he attends an international conference he start with two laureates which is a total departure from the question asked.

  4. Every time these guys opened their mouth they make Chas look like a genius. Up to now they can’t show me where Chas was going wrong. In fact no politician is a genius. More like dumb and dumber. I take back my word genius.

  5. Minister of protocol. How many ministries do you oversee? Please give us an update about them instead making protocol schedule which lacks logic.

  6. Please be real otherwise you will live your life in this wase land for ever the trend is changing while covide is a tool your future employer may use it as a tool only time will tell.. be clean and you won’t have to doge people

  7. Yawnnnnning ๐Ÿ™„ tan….no sh!t Sherlock. Mussa of confinement and protocols please go away.

    I for one don’t give a sh!t about all the waves to come. Death is no one’s enemy,our leaders are. Covid is already tired of all this cr@p. It too wants a break.

    SLP had all the answers just like Joe Biden but now they are all singing a different song.

    @virus @just saying @wake up sheeple ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿพ

    It’s time to stop waking up the sheep and wake up other lions.

  8. Hahaha. By just being there will get our loans paid and put food on the table. Really Moses? When businesses start closing down due to the strain in the larger, countries, by seeing y’all faces our belly will be filled. Just say what many already know–we are screwed.

  9. Stupid people keep enabling y’all lunatics and lunacy. You can fool some people some of the time but you cant fool all the people all of the time.
