  1. The situation will get worse as we see the virus is still raging on the global scene. It is left to the population to act sensibly and be very responsible. Once borders remain open and people continue to behave in dangerous manners…then the opportunities will be present for the unseen guest to attack people.
    We cannot depend on vaccines. There is no telling when supplies will be available for the Caribbean islands. Even Barbados now seems desperate enough to approach the Indian government about obtaining vaccines from India.
    These are warning signs of the times in which we live. My people …. it will only get WORSE as we draw closer to the end.
    We need to take the essential preventative measures and precautions that will deter this virus from jumping from person to person. Let us adhere to the protocols.
    Covid-19 will be with us for a long time. The new variants signifies that as an RNA virus, it intends to do its rounds over and over again.
    PEOPLE BE WISE: PROTECT YOURSELVES, YOUR FAMILY, YOUR NEIGHBORS.
    ONLY WE CAN MAKE THIS HAPPEN !

    WORLD “CRYSIS”: THE END IS NEAR !

  4. There are plenty of people who can help just blockade the hill and ask the yachties and rich “residents” to give 100 US dollars to pass through Liberta on their way to the airport.

  5. The travel protocol to enter Antigua & Barbuda should be revised for persons entering to have a negative covid-19 result from test done within 72 hours before boarding the plane to travel.

    A covid-19 negative person could easily contract the virus within that 7 day period. So the result shows negative, but in fact the traveler comes in being positive.

    Most countries are opting for the 72 hours test results because they know that it makes more sense and is a greater preventative measure against importing positive cases into their borders.
    What is so hard in implementing the same 72 hours test result for Antigua & Barbuda ?

    We are playing a deadly mickey mouse game with peoples’ lives.

    Wake up, Antiguans.

    WORLD “CRYSIS”: THE END IS NEAR !
