  1. My Prayers Continues For Sisi :
    O heavenly father,we thank thee for food, and remember the hungry .We thank thee for health and remember the sick .We thank thee for friends and remember the frendliness.
    We thank thee for freedom and remember the enslaves.

  2. If there is anyone that can tell me where, when and how they contracted Covid? Also can anyone tell us at what time of the day Covid is most like to attack the population of St Lucia ?? I am no scientist but my limited reading research tells me that both curfew or no curfew has and have no effect on the spread. The only reason the numbers went up is because people went shopping in large numbers and people were handling all types of products and items in stores.

  3. Well for those saying not to blame Pierre or the government, let me remind you they facilitated it by extending the start of confinement (jail) hours. Yes we are an irresponsible bunch of people and we have to take the blame for our actions as well. Christmas was 2 weeks ago and New Years one week ago, therefore today is the incubation period for these affected during that period yet we have reached the two hundreds twice already. These coming weeks we will see these figures for Christmas and New Years activities. To me these already high figures are a clear indication omicron is already here. Every other country around us have confirmed its presence so what are we hiding?

  4. Government facilitated this spike by extending the ‘free up hours’. Chase at facilitated it in July by calling and not putting proper protocols in place for elections. The damn children are the ones suffering, In the next five years we will reap the fruits of our stupidity. The politicians don’t give a damn. They get their huge salary and kickbacks..they secure jobs and scholarships for their children and we are screwup by the borrowings and cost overruns.

  5. What is going on in St.Lucia is also happening everywhere in the world. That is just how COVID operates.

  6. Up up and away ….like we are surprise with all the fete that happen over Christmas Oh it’s the government fault not our own with all the beach fete and new yers fete that was happening yeah it’s Pierre fault he was shoving rum and burn chicken down our throats.

  7. St Lucians like too many fetes, lets continue with the boat rides on Sunday, then blame the government.

  8. While I agree with you JC, we also have to blame ourselves to. Too many people were out in small parties and gatherings. And what pains me is, you want to gather, at least wear a bloody mask. Y’all Lucian’s sicken me. It’s always people like me and my team in the front line suffering because of people foolishness.

  9. We all hv to tk blame wht u expected u want to gv restaurant and hotels Lee way so there u go wasn’t a smart move
