  1. 22 Jan update 3 new cases
    23 Jan 3 new cases
    Any guesses what numbers will happen on 24,25,26,27,28? (Based on Sir Health words delivered by Minister of Information !)

  2. They let in thousands of folks from disease areas over the holidays

    Didn’t bother testing or quarantining them

    There are hundreds if not thousands of cases on island

      • Where is the proof. U here pan ebry post but up to now cant bring one piece of proof thousands of cases here. Way de proof dey!!! But u won’t u will just respind wid one long winded essay cause that is ur job!! Ya fingers most rejoyce wen ya sleep ah night!!

  3. Everyone want to blame these on people comin in. These are us not wearing masks and staying distant. All you have to do is drive around to see people not following the rules with parties and gatherings. We need take responsibility! Do what’s right. No vaccine comin for us lowly people anytime soon.

  4. Wish that was believable. Smh
    Only God Knows.
    Everyone be responsible and follow all protocols.
    True transparency is a challenge for this government and that’s exactly why we are never told where the cases are.
    It would blow their cover……..

    GOD HELP US ALL!!!!!!!!!!!

  5. So many second home owners who are illegally resident on the island. People who have no respect for Antiguans and deny Covid is a problem. Falmouth and English Harbour is brimming with them. The government needs to take a close look.

    • W.H.O. has not approved the vaccines from China or Russia as of 25/1/21.
      It would be riskier to use non- approved vaccines.
