Chastanet: “6 feet apart is better than being 6 feet under”
(St. Lucia News Online) — Prime Minister Allen Chastanet continues to stress the importance of social distancing in the battle against COVID-19.
In a social media post on Sunday, the prime minister suggested that it’s better to practice social distancing than being dead.
“Always remember that being 6 Feet Apart is Better than being 6 Feet Under,” he wrote on his official Facebook page, while “wishing everyone a blessed and peaceful Sunday #StayHome #SaveLives #DefeatCOVID19”.
The majority of the responses to the post wished Chastanet and his family a “blessed” and “safe” Sunday. A few others stood out, however.
One person used the opportunity to request help from the prime minister: “Blessed Sunday PM. Can SLDB [Saint Luca Development Bank) give us a loan frozen for 6 months instead of a 6-month moratorium?”
