St Kitts and Nevis has the lowest virus cases in the Caribbean

St Kitts and Nevis boasted the lowest number of coronavirus cases amongst the Caribbean islands when statistics were collated before Christmas. According to MJS & Associates, a company in the British Virgin Islands, statistics show that the dual-island nation has the least severe rate. In a recently published update chart depicting cases in the Caribbean per 10,000 population St Kitts and Nevis has only reported 28 cases with zero deaths. This is a reflection of the government's effective management of the virus since the pandemic begin, which included shutting down borders from March to October.

At the onset of the pandemic, the government moved quickly to ensure the safety of its citizens and the continued support of its economy from providing stimulus package to introducing a waiver of specific payments.
