  1. Can’t it be revealed where the imported cases are coming from and whether they are visitors, nationals returning or citizens? How can we know what to be aware of if all we are being given are numbers. It is not necessary to reveal personal information but knowledge of where the infections are coming from will help in decisions made. In terms of community spread cases, locations of possible infections are also markers for the population to be aware of.

    • @ Joan. Far too sensible a request !
      Many have been asking for such helpful information for months, Cabinet commented ‘we are a small society and to give that type of information would result in people being targeted/ostracized’ (I paraphrase), yet many OECS islands ARE giving such information in a general manner.
      Smoke and Mirrors Governance.

    • Avatar photo How can you know what to be aware of ? Be aware of Covid . You want 2 American 1 English man 1 Dominican 1 puerto rican it's all Covid be aware of Covid.

      No, the information given is sufficient . What you’re suggesting will surely lead to discriminatory practices and behaviors after all we are ONLY HUMAN .

  2. 421 active, now let’s do some math. 421 – 128 ( self quarantine) = 293. 293 – 80 ( government quarantine) =213. 213 – 42 ( hospital) = 171. Where the 171 positive case be hiding???

    • In QUARANTINE DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE THE VIRUS. Stop counting people in quarantine as if they are positive. The 42 persons that are hospitalized are included in the 421 active cases.

  3. If u get wet by rain n ah coughing after simple you have COVID 19 so just do yah best and keep out the public… everything is COVID even if u sneezing

  4. Just go ahead and post the data for the 26th, today so you’re back on track.
    Getting tired of our delays, usually means bad news

  5. The protocols in place are already discriminatory . Returning nationals are been ask to go into quarantine,while tourist are been told to move around freely within the curfew time . Even all over without wearing mask in some cases.
