Prime Minister Allen Chastanet has  singled out men in a special health appeal to the nation.

In making the appeal, he said he was ‘saddened’ by statistics in relation to chronic conditions.

Chastanet made specific mention of Diabetes and High blood pressure and lately, COVID-19 related deaths.

“Your health and wellbeing is paramount to us building a healthy, resilient nation,” he observed.

Please visit the nearest wellness center or your private physician to get your regular health checks,” Chastanet urged.

“Maintain a healthy lifestyle which includes, fresh fruits and vegetables, exercise, reduced stress,” he said on Facebook.

And the PM appealed to all to set the positive example by getting their COVID-19 vaccine at the soonest.

“Let us put COVID-19 behind us, towards a normal life for 2022,” the PM declared.

The PM also raised the health issue in an address to parliament earlier this week.

Chastanet mentioned men who have underlying conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure but are not treating them by taking their medication and getting continuous medical checks.

He also spoke of men with those conditions who contract COVID-19, but wait too long to get help.

“I am really making an appeal to our men, please go to the doctor,” Chastanet stated.

“Please, take your prescription,” he urged.

And the PM also appealed to men who experience fever or have a cough to not delay in getting help.

However he lamented that sadly, many who wait too long to visit the respiratory centre, when not much can be done.

“So I appeal to all of the men, please take this thing seriously,” Chastanet asserted.
