St Kitts and Nevis has not been hugely affected by the spread of the novel coronavirus and its message is business as usual.
The assertion made by St Kitts and Nevis Acting Comptroller of Customs Kennedy DeSilva, who said the spread of the coronavirus across the United State has not caused a disruption to its shipping schedules. He said for now all imports of food and other products are following normal schedules and claims to the contrary, are nothing more than baseless and unfounded rumours.
He said: “There is no change that we are aware of, all imports appear normal. We’ve also had discussions because I’m actually on the committee that deals with the coronavirus. During a conversation about freight security, we were informed that nothing has changed to date. The rumours that have been going wild, I don’t know what they are based on, but from all indications everything should be normal.”
