  1. Still calling on the health officials to thoroughly explain the data on the dashboard.
    Active cases: 324
    Hospitalized: 36 ( Is this figure an overall of the total number of persons who have been hospitalized thus far ) Or is it specific to the present dashboard ?

    Government quarantine : 51
    Home (self) quarantine: 35 Total” 86

    The questions are: 1. Do you have persons who are known positive cases in home quarantine ?
    If so..that would certainly be pure madness!

    2. Does the quarantine refer only to persons who are tested positive ?
    ( Since the policy is such that everyone who comes into the nation has to be quarantined for 2 weeks…..whether being negative or positive )

    Proper explanation must be given for the data presented on the dashboard. It is misleading.

    WORLD “CRYSIS” : THE BRIGHT PEOPLE NEED TO EXPLAIN THIS

  2. Tommy John- With Covid. How many more suicide,road deaths, drown, overdose, murder etc? So stupid when some you say people them dying in the street. Ridiculous smh

    • Are these cases really a fact or they making up numbers . who are these anonymous people who are being recorded as covid patients ?

    • There is no pleaseing you people is there. If they give the vaccine to the general public first you would still complain. If they did not bring the vaccine here you would still complain. They close the island you complain. They open the island you complain. That is all we do in Antigua complain but offer no solution. That is what sick my stomach.

  3. Can someone please answer …. What is this ? This dashboard is saying that they have had home quarantined patients for a while now and nunber had not reduced. How do u know these people Are positive or negative so u can know where to place them on the board ? Whats going on. All of a sudden cases beyond cases. Just the other day all the bars opened Christmas eve corked no cases. Stores filled with people . no cases not even one . where all these coming from . please people stop lying to us. Stop it

  4. The R-rate is out of control. There is only one solution and that is to have a shut down for at least a month. Antiguan people WILL survive because there is CARE for each other. A need to look after each other is vital. People who have money are leaving. You must protect yourselves. No part time residents are going to help. They just leave, sailing or flying away. Be kind and generous with each other. Keep safe, share, and get any vaccine available. Remember the vaccine does not have any protection for 3 weeks so you still need to be careful. God Bless Antigua.

  5. Did anyone hear that desperate man on 911 this morning. He was gasping at straws, trying to sound relevant. HWFL, we all acknowledge what the PM did optically leaves a lot to be desired. MOVE ON. If it did happen then it done happen. Why you keep on harping over it. Would it prevent you from catching covid?

    • He thinks it is going to be his meal ticket to re-election; but it sounded sad and pathetic; certainly no help to the current situation.

  6. What a joke. Didn’t the lying govt say they have it under control?

    Let’s see what new lies they try to come up with.

    Where are Nigel Christian’s murderers? Why haven’t they been caught? No one seems to be doing anything about finding his murderers now. This stinks of high ranking officials involved.
