  1. Thought Gaston said on his radio show on Saturday that the last update was zero cases. Guess they held back reporting the numbers. The Antiguan Christmas visitors done Gawn home so why these high numbers? How long does covid take to manifest itself after infection. Antiguans had better start taking this thing seriously and look after themselves.

    • @….
      Arriving Nationals x 4 couples in past 2 weeks, that live away, have told me they were NOT tested, temperature checked, braceleted, told to call in temperature daily, isolated or quarantined.NONE.
      They all arrived at their respective AirBnB, then went grocery shopping. They told me they out of respect would not visit family home BUT have family visit them by their pools for the days they are here ( without masks or distance).
      All 4 couples were here less than 6-nights.
      These 8 people are a miniscule sample of the daily arrivals in past 2-weeks,. But please don’t tell me every other arrival WAS processed to strict published protocols.
      THAT IS VERY LIKELY WHY # ARE AS THEY ARE!

      Remember USA has daily increasing variant cases.

      ( I observed these folks in various places & placed myself at 8′, I was fully masked, and had a ‘friendly chat’ to understand their airport arrival experience)

  2. How many of the 343 cases that were active on Saturday were hospitalized???
    Why is this information suddenly a state secret?
    Let’s wait for miraculous pronouncements after Cabinet this week.

  3. Unless you the Ministry of Health and the Administration upgrade the Dashboard.I my opinion it should not be shown.Because that Dashboard and zero are one in the same.By itself zero has no value.Looking at that dashboard above.It has no value.Lacks pertinent information like Hospitalizations, outstanding tests, quarantines.
