Public’s review of this news

A Facebook user commented, “Coronavirus becomes the primary cause, then the secondary will be the medical issue the person had. Here’s a question- If a person has cancer and has 1yr to live gets covid and dies within 4-months, what should the Pathologist put as cause of death?”

Another Facebook user commented, “I think someone should be checking how they are treating the patients in the hospital. Just some things I have heard. Anyone who has been in the hospital should tell people about their experiences If the world can talk about their care, How they felt and how bad they were. Why can’t St Lucians do the same.”

Anna Promesse commented, “Base on some of you all comments, I hope when you all get sick, you all do not go to the doctors, because, some of you have no trust in them covid 19 have killed people all over the world 11 in Saint Lucia yes it is sad but if the doctor says so stop the negative comments.”
