St Kitts and Nevis: Prime Minister of SKN, Timothy Harris, expressed the success of Team Unity’s approach to managing COVID-19.

Prime Minister of SKN, Timothy Harris, stated, “In my Statement to #Parliament about the #vaccines rollouts I was able to highlight the success of the #TeamUnity approach to managing #COVID19.”

Furthermore, Prime Minister of SKN, Timothy Harris added, “Our shrewd fiscal administration over the past six years since Team Unity has been at the helm gave us the economic latitude to intensify our health care preparedness and keep the whole economy afloat despite a near closure of one of our significant income generators: the tourism sector.”

A resident told the reporters that, Good afternoon, sir. Everything is good. When vaccines start, then please withdraw the quarantine. Because of quarantine, lots of people can’t travel, and lots of people can’t come—Specialty Portzante. So please consider our pray.

On February 18, PM Harris stated, “Grateful to Resident Ambassador of the Republic of China on #Taiwan His Excellency Tom Lee for his remarks at the opening of Ottley’s/Lodge Community Centre. He saw the site close to completion as my monthly #HealthWalk finishes here, and he is a regular participant and supporter.”

 St Kitts and Nevis, Prime Minister Dr.Timothy Harris notified that the coronavirus vaccination plan is now ready; coronavirus vaccination program rollout will starts on Monday, February 22, 2021.”

Prime Minister Harris declared on February 18, during the first sitting of the National Assembly for the year.

In his announcement, Dr.Harris said, “Our purpose is not just for coverage of 20 percent of the population as is the goal of the COVAX facility just to have more than 70 percent citizens coverage, through achieving herd immunity and wide-scale protection of all our people here in St. Kitts and Nevis.”

The Federation received two thousand (2,000) doses of vaccine from the administration of the Commonwealth of Dominica last week and is set to get an additional 21,600 doses by the end of February within the coronavirus Global Access (COVAX) Facility.

Dr. Harris announced the Federation’s vaccination plan would be rolled out in a phased approach, with the primary goals being to prevent death and serious diseases as much as possible, preserve the regular functioning of society, and reduce the additional burden that COVID-19 is having on people already suffering vulnerabilities.
