CAPPOON'S BAY, Tortola, VI – Deputy Premier and Minister for Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, Fisheries and Agriculture, Dr the Honorable Natalio D. Wheatley (R7), while celebrating the legacy of H.L. Stoutt, shone the spotlight on the Virgin Islands' successful fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Minister was at the time speaking at the Wreath Laying Ceremony and H. Lavity Stoutt Commemorative Celebration at Cappoon’s Bay, Tortola, on March 1, 2021.

“It's been a difficult year but by God's grace today we have zero cases of COVID-19 and if you claim it in your spirit that we are turning a corner with COVID-19 say amen,” Dr Wheatley said.

According to the Deputy Premier, the territory has already reached a turning point regarding the management of the pandemic

Better days ahead - Dr Wheatley 

“Let us acknowledge it at this celebration now, we are on our way back to better days as it pertains to COVID-19. We are certainly turning a corner with our vaccinations and everything else that's taking place.”

Hon Wheatley continued, “The whole world would be able to look at the Virgin Islands as a shining example of how you manage a pandemic.”

Meanwhile, in acknowledging the legacy of H.L. Stoutt, Dr Wheatley said there are unquestionable aspects of leadership in past and present local leaders that push the territory forward.

He said Mr Stoutt’s vision has paved the way for many developments in the territory, where the people of the VI remains his greatest vision and legacy.

    Leadership is about managing coronavirus AND the economy. A five year old could shut the country down.

    The government is doing that at the cost of the tourism industry. Do you know how many persons are laid off or are working just 2 days per week, These laid off people are not receiving a percentage of their salary like some other countries it no work no pay. People have kids to take care off too. So yes no covid here but at tge cost of laid off tourism workers.

    A few rocks with a total area of less than 60 square miles surrounded by water, that must have been difficult to manage!
