We are reminding them of what to do to stay alive. It is a big burden on Hon. Desmond Elliot. He wants the best for his people and at times like this, he is expected to do what he is doing as he has always done.

So, we are telling the people not to forget to wash their hands, use hand sanitizers, they should try as much as they can to avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth, avoid contact with sick persons, cover a cough or sneeze, keep their distances and stay alive.”
