  1. I would like for the CMO to give a breakdown. As to where the cases of Covid-19 are highly concentrated. A population of about 90,000 with 222 active Virus Cases and counting.

  2. Seems to me the more people get vaccinated, the more cases of covid we have. What is going on. The airport is packed with thousands of visitors. I am sure they are vaccinated, but we know vaccinated people can shed the virus and infect others.
    Don’t tell me we need more people vaccinated to achieve herd immunity because in Israel, over 80% of the people are vaccinated and they are still having a rapid increase in covid.

    • Sir/Madam, the more people in Antigua get vaccinated is not the more people get covid. It’s the opposite. If you will accept that I’m a healthcare professional with some knowledge of life support machines and oxygen devices please know that 9 out of 10 patients requiring those kinds of support are the unvaccinated. A couple of the vaccinated can catch covid. Again, they recover much faster and seldom requiring hospitalization. My stats come from what I see with my eyes, and touched with my hands. Antigua must get serious, this virus is deadly serious. Protect yourself and family.

      • I accept that you are clueless to bio warfare and you dont realise that almost everyone who took this vaxx will die within 2 years….the doctors in antigua are hiding the fact that multiple normal people are coming in with organ failure after getting vaxxed

    • Wake up me always hear me granny say you can take a horse to the pond, but you can’t make the horse drink. Antigua having the vaccine and people not taking it can’t help in reducing covid. Antigua really need to wake up cuz this Delta covid is serious. I know a little bit about life support machines and oxygen devices. If you will believe me 9 out of 10 patients requiring them are the unvaccinated. Please protect yourself, family, and Antigua/ Barbuda.

  3. What I would like to see that samples of blood taken from patient before and after the jab published the findings to acertain weather or not that the Vaccine is circulating

  4. Wake up me always hear me granny say you can take a horse to the pond, but you can’t make the horse drink. Antigua having the vaccine and people not taking it can’t help in reducing covid.

  5. It probably is close to the peak right now and numbers are being hidden. The peak was only 455 active cases. And 5 days passed with no documentation…50 new infection last Friday…not to mention the airport super spreader event…

  6. Yes, as the vaccine rolled out, we have a steady increase in cases. Why? Well let’s remember how we got this pandemic in the first place. Asymptomatic spread of SARS CoV 2. The distribution of the vaccine had some major negative effects on containment of the infection. One is that vaccinated people began to abandon the mask and distance protocols that limited the spread, falsely believing they were now immune. But the second is that vaccination not only failed to stop infection in the vaccinated, but vaccinated people who catch the virus are mostly asymptomatic spreaders who are not getting tested because the powers that be want to pretend that they’re immune. That’s why the cases are going up so fast. The vaccine resulted in the exact opposite of herd immunity because it just created a new class of silent spreaders who are flying completely under the radar. Did you notice the government closed the gyms and restaurants again, despite these being for vaccinated only? Keep your eyes open, folks. Actions always speak louder than words, especially when the words are lies.

  7. Why is it 1400 persons can at the airport at the same time and it is not considered a SUPER SPREADER LOCATION?

    THE AIRPORT IS A SUPER SPREADER LOCATION THAT REQUIRES IMMEDIATE RESTRICTIONS.

    • Exactly. They have the vaccine which prevents serious illness but you can still spread Covid without symptoms. Please take the vaccine and continue to respect others.

  8. It is rather strange that only Vaccinated person to go to the Jim . Now I am trying to understand the logics if they are fully Vaccinated why close the gym.Please that goat that was in the garden and was impounded gone astray . Not Maria’s goat

  9. The demonic immigration that is coming into Antigua from other countries under CARICOM immigration rules is hurting our nation.

    Withdraw from CARICOM now! Stop CARICOM immigration into Antigua!
