  1. Is this a hoax? What is really going on here? Am I correct to say 4 women died from Covid-19 in two days. Heaven help us all.

    • Look at the ages of 3 of the women; 97, 78 and 80. I find this to be extremely alarmist and fear mongering. Those women were past their prime and could have had underlying conditions, which of course they won’t tell us because it’s none of our business. Although the 24-year old was young, she could have also had underlying conditions. My condolences to all of the families, but people need to stop acting surprised.

      • What’s alarming is that you put little value on these lives. Who are you to decide who is past their prime. So cases rises isn’t alarming? People dying isn’t alarming? Maybe when children start dying you will start being “surprised”

        • Totally Agree! I also appreciate your comments. It is the usual and totally insensitive comments and disregard for human lives knowing fully well these are people’s family. Very disgusting, it is just a norm with these people on this portal. Shameful.

  2. Sad news. Especially when we had our cases down to zero until the planes started coming back. When you call for Antigua to open up to Red list countries this is what happens.

    • You sound stupid. You actually believed that there were zero active cases in Antigua at any point in time; and that it was the reopening of the country that caused the spike????

      These new cases are likely from the mandatory testing that’s happening right now. People weren’t getting tested before and were more than likely walking around with the virus unknowingly because they were asymptotic and not getting tested.

      But anyway that’s my 2 cents.

      Stay safe, wear your mask and take the vaccine.

  3. The game is clear,you die for whatsoever stuff is and their charging as a COVID dead,or the people are stupidor their brain take a vacation…in this hospital some sinister stuff is going on… that’s why this bastards not allow you going there….and look the same copy and paste for this suspect DOCTOR DUNCAN…go to the school back or get a communication officer to explain better,shame on you old man

    • WOW just WOW.

      When people were dying before everyone was convinced that it was COVID and wanted more testing. Now COVID is being blamed, everyone wants to blame underlying conditions.

      Round and round the merry-go-round we go as usual.I just can’t keep up.

  4. Why y’all so pressed in if they were vaccinated or not? To prove what point 🤣…. Sigh condolences to the family may God comfort u in these difficult times
