  1. Wow this is an all time high. So we r nearly out of hospital beds and many fools still saying they not taking any vaccine, go ahead and play with ur life, how very very sad!

  2. This is now well out of control. The longer the government delays lockdown the harder it will be to get the numbers down. It didn’t have to be this way but you are now close to a public health disaster. Lockdown and pay workers a special subsidy and small businesses as well. Put a levy on big business to pay for it

  3. As T Baptiste said it was only left to time for us to see the effect of what that Snake had done. Look how he made the numbers jump. I wonder if he has a special mutation.

  4. Dear God,Father of Jesus and Mankind.I Pray for my Country,Antigua and Barbuda.That You would lift this Pandemic off of your Children.The evil that men do lives after them,the good is oft interred with their bones.Please folks,wear your masks properly,wash your hands often,disinfect things before you touch them,do not shake hands,keep your physical distances.When your neighboring Islands are in dangers of increased Covid-19 numbers.Take heed and protect yours.Do not jump and laugh at them,because what goes around comes around and bite you in your tushies.

  5. 111 New Cases of Covid-19, 457 Total Active Cases in Antigua and Barbuda.Those numbers should be of grave concern to all of us.Some are saying shut down the Island.It has been proven that shutdowns do not work.When Covid-19 exploded in California.They had a lockdown and the numbers continued to explode,I used California as an example.Look at the Countries that did similar lockdowns.It did not work for them either.

    • LoL…American lockdowns aren’t real lockdowns so they never work. Real lockdowns combined with widespread testing are working in China as they have since the beginning of the pandemic. But we shouldn’t need lockdowns at this point. What the world needs is the ability to test at home for the virus. Until that happens, this virus will continue to overrun the human race indefinitely.

    • Countries where lockdowns proven to work New Zealand, Australia, Taiwan, Antigua, ( locked down last year, number went down)

    • CartoonBoss: Speaking of not following protocols. Perhaps you should speak to the owners of the Royalton Hotel.They follow nothing .

  6. How can you have more fully vaccinated than first dose?

    “Meanwhile, Antigua and Barbuda has fully vaccinated thirty four thousand five hundred and twenty-nine (34,529) individuals while seven thousand one hundred and ninety-three (7,193) have only received their first dose”.

    • What don’t you understand? There are fully vaccinated individuals plus individuals who have only received their first dose.
