  1. Twelve new cases on normal days, just the usual Gros Islet Friday nights, the Sunday Beach Parties, some usual and unusual community Parties, but twelve is alarming after all the talks and lectures on Protocol; fearful to think of Carnival and the push and build up to that event and the Deputy P.M. gearing up momentum for a big spree. Hospitals, Doctors, Nurses and Health workers you have your work cut out for you. With St. Lucians, Parties comes First.

    • Keep you mask on in public places and keep sanitising your hands. Then we can all keep this virus away from our loved ones.

  2. Wow that is great. Now fix the gros islet highway. Stop the patch work. Fix the tunnel road. Stop the patch work. Damn roads f****** up my vehicle.
