  1. RIP
    Maybe it’s time to put big fines on people not respecting the health protocols!!!
    Every day, I see 7 Americans walking down the road, none of them wearing a mask, not even carrying one…going to the beach like if covid didn’t exist!!!
    If the police was doing their job, it would be 3500$!!!

  2. That’s ridiculous! Those Americans ought to be charged hefty fines as they are disrespecting our country and our laws. They wouldn’t dare do it in their country.

    • Mask are not mandatory in a handful of American States. In fact life in Florida has started to return to pre-covid behaviours and activities. Malls are packed. Both public and private events are packed with no regard for social distancing protocols. So if they (the tourist) are Americans as you said they are probably not behaving any differently from they way they would in the US.

    • Stop playing games with semantics.

      We’re in the middle of a pandemic with a disease that suddenly kills people.

      When people who contact the disease suddenly die, stop acting surprised

    • No… Covid couldn’t be the cause of death because covid has NEVER been isolated. Nobody in the world has seen a ‘live’ covid virus. The only way covid is currently ‘detected’ is by the PCR ‘test’ which isn’t a test at all. PCR is an amplification process for small amounts of material to be made into a greater amount of material. It’s creator said himself that it should NOT be use as a diagnostic tool.

      Most likely cause of death was probably influenza or a bacterial infection due to mask wearing.

  3. I say shut the Nation down for 2 weeks.Try and contain the spread then.Enforce the protocols to all and sundry.No damn exceptions.Regardles of how rich and or poor are you.Drastic times do call for drastic measures.Antigua and Barbuda could survived 2 weeks of total border lock down.You should have enough food,water and cash on island to support a population of 100,000 people for 2 weeks.So what is the issue here? The Virus is spreading like a wild fire.Persons are now dying frequently from this Virus.Do something now.Gaston Browne as Prime Minister,you need to go to the Nation’s Station,ABS.Talk to the people not talk down to the people.Not blame the people.It is too late for that.Let them buy in to what you are asking of them.Be sincere,no bull shit at this juncture.Let action begins,not just words. Mobilize the entire Medical Professionals through out the Country.That would be a good place to start in my opinion.You could figure out the rest with your Kitchen Cabinet.

  4. To all of you Covid-19 experts on this portal.If someone has been suffering with an illness for 10 years.That person fell ill and goes to the Hospital.That person is tested for Covid-19.The results came back positive for the Virus.That person passes away.Why is that person listed.To have died from Covid-19.

    • Not because of the disease you had for 10 years

      If you contract COVID and then get I’ll with RESPIRATORY symptoms and die of a stroke MI or respiratory decompensation, it doesn’t matter that you had diabetes or hypertension for 10 to years prior.

      You’d still be alive if you hadn’t contracted COVID.

      If you didn’t have symptoms of COVID they wouldn’t have tested you for it in the first place

      You people need to wake up. You’re in a crisis. Deal with it. Stop the magical thinking and rationalizations.
