Antigua and Barbuda breaks record of low COVID-19 infection rate


Cabinet notes”

The Cabinet received an update on Covid-19 and learned of the very attractive data showing Antigua and Barbuda as the only independent state in this hemisphere with zero new cases in about one week, zero hospitalizations for Covid, and zero active Covid cases.


The Cabinet congratulated all those who are responsible for this remarkable reporting including the Minister of Health, the Chief Quarantine/Medical Officer, the doctors, nurses, the front-line workers, the healthcare professionals, law enforcement, and the people of Antigua and Barbuda who obeyed the protocols, and those who are fully vaccinated.


The Minister is of the view that the primary reason for this outstanding performance lies in the number of vaccinated people.


He advised against becoming complacent. Every adult is encouraged to step forward for the AstraZeneca vaccine, now available.


An estimated, additional 20,000 men and women resident in the State need to be vaccinated in order to achieve “herd immunity”.

  1. Remarkable indeed.

    Our youth track & field athletes did not think it remarkable the National Trials were cancelled with 24-hrs notice. How could that happen? Lack of planning or lack of Ministry of Health timely decision making?

    Our fully vaccinated fete-lovers do think it is remarkable they will be able to wine, get on bad, and get home at 3am in a time of national state of emergency with an 11pm-5am curfew. How could that happen? Minister of Information says on ABS state of emergency is to remove constitutional rights of citizens to peacefully gather.

    Look at dat.

    Nation-building with very skewed priorities.

    • Sports is s joke in Antigua. The sporting organizations are not serious, this is a side gig for them. They have never been serious, everything is last minute. In covid, that is how they function and this must chsnge.Yasco is not yet suitable for any national event….gimme an aspirin

  2. Is it just me, or is the number of people said to be needed to be vaccinated to achieve herd immunity keeps getting lower?

  3. So I’m skeptical of any claims from this country
