SLP declared that, “The Government of St Lucia has lost its way, and that the UWP needs to be eliminated from office.” New protocols (December 15, 2020, to January 11, 2021) regulated by the Chair of the Command Centre Hon. Dominic Fedee in the Press Conference held on December 9, 2020. SLP said the regulated time had been gone, and now is the time to ask some serious questions.
The reason behind the SLP accusation
The reason behind this accusation on the UWP government is the increasing number of COVID-19 cases. St Lucia has witnessed 230 cases from December 11 to January 14, with a pandemic high of 43 cases on January 9. Yet in above all, these new regulated protocols have expired since January 11.
SLP asks for any Regulations and Protocols in action in Nation right now?
SLP asks UWP, “How can a responsible Government, how can a responsible Minister of Health, how can a responsible Chairman of the Command Centre, and how can a responsible Prime Minister allow our country to be in such a situation?”
SLP asked the next question is, why did it take several days for Saint Lucians to be notified of this death from COVID-19?
Questions by the SLP
The serious question is the visitors who arrive in Saint Lucia were already suffering from coronavirus symptoms. The travelers were a negative or positive test for deadly COVID-19. As the guest was not in care at the time of loss, was the hotel where he stayed considering and implementing established COVID-19 Protocols? Are these rumors are correct that the coronavirus outbreak of COVID-19 at that same hotel? Does Saint Lucia’s overburdened public health sector have the potential to deliver these private supplementary tests? Local private labs can test for the new covid-19 mutant.
At this point, most residents would have favored that our borders be closed to the U.K. and the U.S. to repress this outbreak in COVID-19; however, we are aware of the economic consequences of closing the borders.
According to them, new protocols must be followed and reintroduced to promote economic growth and restrict the spreading of COVID-19.
