Basseterre,St.Kitts April 14 2020 (SKNIS)
Praise continues to roll in for Prime Minister Dr. the Honourable Timothy Harris and his administration’s competent handling of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, which has resulted in a State of Emergency being declared for the period March 28th to April 18th to protect the health and safety of the public against the risk of human-to-human transmission.
Prime Minister Harris has been taking to the airwaves to disseminate information and assure the public that the country’s government and health system are prepared to deal effectively with the pandemic.  To date, the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis has 12 confirmed COVID-19 cases with zero deaths.
Speaking last Saturday, April 11th on WINN (98.9) FM’s Inside the News – during his third consecutive appearance on the popular weekend talk show – the Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis said: “From where I sit, and from the knowledge I have, I think that we are fortunate as a people to have the kinds of dedicated teams that we have in the Health Emergency Operations Centre (HEOC) headed by Dr. Hazel Laws and in the National Emergency Operations Centre (NEOC) headed by Mr. Abdias Samuel.”
The Prime Minister added: “They have been excellent servants of the people.  Their hard work and their commitment to see this through have been an inspiration to me as the Prime Minister and have motivated me to spend even more time and to pay more close attention to ensure that the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis – having led the way so far – continues its excellent planning, which we had put in place.”
Prime Minister Harris noted that, “As small as we are, we kept the pandemic from our shores for the longest while; we were the last among the independent states to have been visited by the virus.”
