  1. People please don’t be silly and celebrate like the UPP hierarchy about these things. I understand the thinking in their camp is that given “a crises is a terrible thing to waste” they are strategizing to take advantage of it politically!!

    • My Word it is just a pity that the UPP is not a little bit more proactive and aggressive like the ALP when they were in opposition. If the ALP was in opposition now I am sure they would be saying, especially Molwyn, Max Hurst and Gaston that the UPP created the Corona virus in Harold Lovell’s kitchen. That is how ridiculous and desperate is the ALP always.

    • @insight WELL SAID. Where are those 100,000???
      Cabinet notes 3 Feb 21 state ‘5000 laptops on order’ awaiting fulfillment & shipping.
      These laptops for students promises might be similar to the ‘500 homes in 500 days’ promise.

  2. You cannot run and or hide from Covid-19.You cannot “cover” up Covid-19.It does not like to be suffocated.What you hide in the darkness of nights.Would come out into the sunlight.You the Leaders with Knighthood cannot lie to the people anymore about no Covid-19 inna Antigua and Barbuda.Many of you in this Administration were laughing and pointing your fingers at Barbados some weeks back.The Tap Dawg,even went as far as to write a letter filled with sarcasm to Mia Mottley, Prime Minister of Barbados.Never laugh at someone else’s misfortunes. You never know when it would be your day.Good luck Antigua and Barbuda.God speed.

  3. Some schools nah even take the time out to sort out google classroom some parents still can’t afford internet neither do they have laptops or computers so what remote learning u r talk bout?

  4. Some nations wait too late to act and thus allow the situation to get out of control.
    Need to be proactive in these times.
    The virus is on a rampage around the world. Vaccine or no vaccine….covid-19 shows no sign of slowing down.
    I reiterate again….this is just a test run for BIGGER WORRIES to come. We ain’t seen anything yet !

    The world is on a downward spiral…out of control….with no sign of reverse. Stuck in destruction gear.
    All because we are greedy, selfish, evil in heart… reaping the consequences of our wicked ways. It will only get much worse before the Master of the universe steps in.
    I say again: God will NEVER force His will on mankind. He made us free moral beings. Gave us the choice between GOOD & EVIL. Encourage us to select good…..but we prefer evil. Now we see the results. God will never force us to follow His way. That would make us robots. You just cannot force someone to love you. That definitely would not be love at all.
    Yet….there is hope for all who want to turn and make that change.
    Realize that we are not living in normal times. These are SERIOUS DAYS. Consider what have brought us to this point…and also consider what can bring us out of this calamity. ONLY THE CREATOR CAN !



  5. We need a vaccine and we cannot wait on Covid as we will all die before we get enough from them. The government needs to source a good vaccine now. Pfizer, Moderna and Astra Zeneca are all committed to sell their Doses of the vaccine to first world countries. They have none for us. We need to look to Russia and the Sputnik vaccine which has today been hailed as very good by Western scientists through The Lancet publication after peer reviewed stage 3 studies. Take a look. The Lancet is the medical bible for the Western first world. Will Russia not sell us that vaccine? I bet they will.

  6. the thing is they cant blame the spanish community like before GOD punish weaky talk never laugh after nobody
