  1. Sad to say but we will lose our Greenlist and level 1 rating if we continue in this trend. We know what works and we were able to bring our count down even without the vaccine. We are getting an increase in the number of flights coming to Antigua and that is a good thing. We are also starting back Cruise tourism and we need that as well. But we need to stick with the protocols and stop the polarisation between vaccinated and unvaccinated.

    Treat everyone as a potential case and let it be in the mindset of the front line workers. Stop letting them think they need to run for their mask when they see an unvaccinated and take it off for the vaccinated. The vaccinated can catch and spread it too.

    The vaccinated travellers can bring it right into the workplace the next day since they dont have to quarantine. By the time it is discovered, many persons may have already contracted it.

  2. When your neighbor’s house a bun. Wet foo you. I listened to a recording of Gaston Browne. He was accusing a former health inspector from Antigua. For the increase in Covid -19 cases in the BVI. Gaston Browne are responsible for the upticks in Covid cases in Antigua now.

  3. How many people are infectious out of the
    positive cases? A Postive pcr test doesn’t mean you are sick or infectious.

  4. Why when I go into IRD on mon the guard is chasing me down to take my temperature, no mask on him, under his chin of course. Then I look behind the glass wall and 9 employees are there, 3 with mask around their chin, 3 with no mask visible, and 2 with mask on there arm, and 1 on proper. These people work for the government, and can’t do it as stated. I will walk out and not pay my taxes if it is like that next month. Get Your, house in order Gaston before you try to correct mine.

    • So Gaston Brown suppose to go into every government department and tell ADULTS what to do? How about taking personal responsibility for ones own health why don’t you suggest that? No wonder why after a year and a half there is no end in site for this pandemic because big grown ass people don’t want to be responsible for themselves.
