  1. Aua students, please wake up. You all are vaccinated and crying that new cases are rising and wanting to do remote.

  2. dashboard missing how many vaccinated people contracted the virus. No transparency in this dashboard

  3. The majority of these cases are local! Dear Antigua, stop being so foolish! Wear your damn mask, practice social distancing and get vaccinated!! If you did these 3 simple things, we would soon be Covid-free again and we wouldn’t have to live under these ridiculous restrictions like little naughty grounded children. Grow up!

  4. The virus was imported from the onset 1 tourist in the hotel could infect 20 staffs and it spread onwards to their household etc, we still looking to cast blame about locals spread. The virus was imported no matter how you twist and turn it. I think this non imported and imported need to remove from the dashboard because it’s a way of trying to cast blame on locals. There was a hotel that had a lot of cases the other day in a biosecure, bubble and all kind of different scientific protection but still there was a break out

  5. When you tell lies and more lies. The Truth always rises to the top and exposes those lies. That Dash-Board reflects numbers from August 26,2021.Whether the cases are imported and or non imported.Who gives a donkey’s backsides. The cases are there in Antigua.That is all that mattered.Do something about it you bull chit-ting Politicians.
