6 new cases of COVID-19


The most recent report received by the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment revealed six (6) new laboratory confirmed COVID-19 cases in Antigua and Barbuda as of Tuesday 22nd February, 2022 at 6pm.

One hundred and thirteen (113) samples were processed.

Fourteen (14) recovered cases were recorded.

Consequently, the total number of persons with laboratory confirmed COVID-19 cases in Antigua and Barbuda is seven thousand four hundred and thirty-five (7,435); which is inclusive of sixty-one (61) active cases.

  1. 7,435 Confirmed Case – 135 Deaths

    What we have here is a covid CASE-demic not an actual pandemic emergency.
    They have stoked the rhetoric 24/7 to instill FEAR into peoples minds.
    STOP… Relax. Take a deep breath without your mask and realize that you’ve been lied to.

  2. Moderna CEO Blames Wuhan Lab – Big Pharma DNA Sequence Patented Three Years Before Pandemic Found In COVID

    Following a recent report from The Daily Mail about a Moderna-patented DNA sequence from 2017 being found in the actual COVID virus, Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo asked Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel what his thoughts were on this discovery.

    “Now scientists find the virus contains a tiny chunk of DNA that matches sequence patented by Moderna three years before the pandemic began. Your reaction Stéphane? What can you tell us?”

    In line with the possibilities explored in the new report on this cancer research DNA strand being discovered in the COVID virus, Bancel said this could very well be evidence that the lab leak was indeed the source of the outbreak.

    “My scientists are looking into [that] data to see how accurate they are or not. As I’ve said before, the hypothesis of an escape from a lab by an accident is possible – you know, humans make mistakes. So is it possible the Wuhan lab in China was working on viruses enhancement or gene modification and then there’s an accident where somebody was infected in the lab and infected families and friends? It is possible. On the claim you just mentioned, the scientists are analyzing to know if it’s real or not.”

    Bartiromo referred back to the report, acknowledging her shock that there are allegations that a patented genetic match – dating years before the virus began to spread in early 2020 – showed up in the actual virus.

    “Yeah, I mean I was struck by the line ‘it matched a genetic sequence patented by Moderna for cancer research purposes,’ Stéphane.”

  3. CDC Drastically Alters Key Measure That Influences Mask Mandates Across US

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Feb. 25 drastically changed a key measure that is used by officials across the country to determine whether or not to require mask-wearing.

    The federal agency now says nearly three-quarters of Americans don’t need to wear masks because they live in areas with low or medium community risk from COVID-19.

    The dramatic switch comes because the CDC switched from only using COVID-19 cases as a factor and are taking into account other metrics, including hospitalizations.

    “This updated approach focuses on directing our prevention efforts toward protecting people at high risk for severe ailments and preventing hospitals and healthcare systems from being overwhelmed,” Dr. Rochelle Walensky, the CDC’s director, told reporters on a call.

    Walensky said the CDC “came up with indicators, including new hospital admissions and hospital beds utilized” and combined “them with case incidents to really create a packet of metrics to be able to understand what’s happening at the local level.”

    After the update, the substantial risk column was removed. Now, just 37 percent of U.S. counties are deemed at high risk.

    People who live in those counties, representing 28.2 percent of the U.S. population, are advised to wear a mask in public indoor settings such as schools.

    In the rest of the counties, people are not advised to wear masks unless they test positive for COVID-19 or have been exposed to somebody with COVID-19.

    People can still wear masks if they feel more comfortable, Walensky said.

    The CDC had resisted calls to alter its community risk metric for months, even after many of the governors who had kept masking requirements in place announced in early February those requirements would be eased or withdrawn.

    Federal health officials say masks are effective at preventing COVID-19 transmission, pointing primarily to studies the CDC has published in its quasi-journal. One such paper, published Feb. 4, relied on self-reporting and found no statistically significant benefit for wearing cloth masks. Critics say the studies don’t support mask-wearing, especially wearing cloth masks.
