  1. Who won’t hear will feel. Innocent will always suffer for the guilty and in the end we will all suffer.

  2. The cmo should worry about the tourist that keep spreading this virus in the country and stop blaming locals with the government . First it was hodge Bay club now its Royalton and they still refusing the fact

    • Maybe all hitels should be closed and workers sent home. Then the Government can layoff 75% of their staff. Then the private sector would then do the same. Where does that leave us? All starving. THE TOURIST NEED TO KEEP COMING SO WE ALL CAN EAT!! The locals just need to think of others above themselves and not be doing unnecessary things to spread the virus.

    • Is true sir, remember this acting C.M.O getting pay for amplify the same rethroric we master of the master PM tell she

  3. I have no data before me, but I don’t believe that it is either nationals / residents or visitors alone. I do believe that its BOTH categories of persons that are spreading the virus. I trust think that there are some that don’t believe the threat is real, and there are some that are tired of the protocols that we’re to follow to try eliminate the disease.

  4. So if the authorities are aware of pool parties why are no persons arrested? Please go into Grays Farms and Point and investigate those persons with pools and effect the arrests if they are guilty.

  5. Charles Tabor,funny,very funny.Both you and I know that the people of Point and Grays Green have no swimming pools. A wanda which uppity area inna Antigua had pool parties over dee weekend?

  6. Double Standards are the norms in Antigua.If the people in Grays Farm/Greenbay had parties over the weekend.The Police would be all over them like white on rice.Because they are poor,unlike those living the areas on the far North Sides of Antigua.
