We searched far-n-wide for a photo that was befitting of this note from Prime Minister John Briceno and decided that the best was the moment that he held a Bible and took the ‘Oath of Office’ In this note the PM thanks well wishers as he is in self-isolation due to COVID-19.
After all, it is because of the many people that are spreading the virus that caused him to get it. Nobody that is stricken with COVID-19 or test positive is to blame for that disposition.
The note reads:
THANK YOU ALL from the bottom of my heart for your outpouring of prayers and well wishes. I want you all to know that thus far I am feeling fine and am working in quarantine until further notice from the medical experts. While I am always doing my utmost to always wear a mask and physically distance from others, my job does require a lot of interaction with people and so I am glad that we were able to catch the infection in the early stages to prevent any further spread.
I want to take this opportunity to implore everyone to please take all necessary precautions against this dangerous disease. We must protect each other by wearing our masks, physically distancing and self-quarantining if we have any suspicions or flu-like symptoms. While many of us are doing the right thing, the sad truth is many of us are still not, and we are unwittingly spreading this virus to those we love. It is important to remember that PEOPLE are what move this virus, and WE THE PEOPLE can also STOP IT in its tracks. Our medical and economic experts are hard at work finalizing our comprehensive country-wide Covid-19 Strategy which I believe will go a long way in combatting this pandemic and protecting our people, but we cannot afford to wait. We must ALL do our part to stop the spread.
