Fourth wave of COVID may end in St Kitts & Nevis soon: CMO Dr Laws

St Kitts and Nevis have reached near the ending phase of the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic as the country has recovered from the viral infection caused by the novel coronavirus, stated by Chief Medical Officer Dr Laws.

Chief Medical Officer, Dr Hazel Laws, has given the update on the fourth wave of the novel coronavirus within the Federation while addressing the February 16, 2022 NEOC press briefing.

While applauding the efforts made by the government of St Kitts and Nevis, Dr Laws commented that with the help of the National COVID-19 task Force, the government of the country has an efficient fight with the novel coronavirus, and the credit really goes to all-of-society as they have behaved very casually and all the policy have been implemented scientifically.

“The fourth wave of the novel coronavirus was at its peak in December 2021 and the beginning of January 2022 and also surge the hospitalisation and death rate on the country, but now all signs are pointing out that the wave will end sooner rather in St Kitts and Nevis”, Dr Laws underscored.

While highlighting the situation of the fourth wave of the novel coronavirus in St Kitts and Nevis, Dr Laws underlined that the country had reported a total of eighty-six new cases of the COVID-19 viral infection within the past two months. At this point, we are currently treating a total of sixty-eight cases diagnosed with the novel coronavirus, stated by Dr Laws.

She further explained that the twelve people had lost their lives due to the viral infection in recent time, and out of them, eleven were not vaccinated against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The government of St Kitts and Nevis has appreciated across the globe, and regional level due to the management of the ongoing viral infection caused by the novel coronavirus as the country has protected both lives and livelihood efficiently added Dr Laws.

The country has reopened the various economic and social activities in the country, but authorities are still encouraging people to behave causally to combat viral illness.
