DFP Leader Bernard Hurtault tells Dominicans embrace the safe, affordable, and very effective vaccines against the deadly coronavirus, and let science triumph, and not be derailed by bad information and unfounded fears
In a letter sent to Q95 News on Wednesday morning, the Dominica Freedom Party (DFP) expressed concerned about the recent spike in Covid-19 infections & apparent incidents of community transmission. The DFP is offering prayers & best wishes to individuals & communities affected and hoped for their speedy recovery. Infectious diseases like the coronavirus are tipping point phenomena where things deteriorate rapidly once a critical threshold is hit. The DFP says persons should not allow that to happen &asks everyone to cooperate fully with the authorities to protect lives.
Political or ideological wrangling should have no place in this matter. Those contacted via tracing should be cooperative, not confrontational. DFP political Leader Bernard Hurtault says “This is not a fight we have with each other. The fight is out there against this deadly disease. We must not stand opposite to each other arguing about vaccinations or trying to score political points over this pandemic. We should instead be standing shoulder to shoulder figuring our joint solutions to defeat this deadly enemy.”
Bernard added, “One of the chief weapons against this deadly virus is vaccination. During this pandemic, countless people worked tirelessly to find an effective weapon against this disease, and they triumphed. Decades of use have shown vaccines to be safe, affordable, and very effective - a real marvel of human ingenuity. It would therefore be a tragedy for science to triumph only to be derailed by bad information and unfounded fear.”
The Dominica Freedom Party was early in its public support for the rollout and cautioned that partisan politics should be left out, and the administration of the vaccine be left to the health professionals. The DFP says it continues to stand in solidarity with the scientific and medical communities who appeal to reason, data, & science in combating & defeating this ruinous disease.
