St Kitts and Nevis: On the occasion of Christmas 2020, Dr the Hon Timothy Harris, Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis greet the citizens. He reminded about the beautiful carol, “Oh Holy Night” which says “A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn”.

On Friday, PM Harris initiated his speech by saying, “There is no gainsaying that 2020 has been an exceptionally challenging year so far. COVID-19 has disrupted our traditional customs and practices and imposing on us compliance on an evolving new normal – wearing masks, frequent hand hygiene and physical distancing.”

He told how COVID-19 reversed the growth of the global economy resulting in job losses, loss of incomes, business failures and hardships for individuals, corporations and institutions around the World. He stated the uncertainty and turbulence in many parts of the World at this Yuletide Season.

He appreciated the Federation who have made significant sacrifices during this time. “I know it was difficult not being able to see your family and friends residing overseas as you would like, or living life as you used to. But it was your sacrifice, following the rules, that made the difference and helped to protect our Federation through the difficult period of COVID-19,” he added.

He also acknowledged that “We can all feel good that our collective efforts have resulted in St Kitts and Nevis being designated as a low-risk jurisdiction by the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention in the United States of America.”

He appreciated how, under his leadership and citizens co-operation, they have the lowest rate of infection null deaths. He urged people to stay safe and follow all the precautions as COVID-19 still remains an existential fulmination. Last but not the least he added ‘We must give our thanks to God.’
