Chief of Staff Lionel Max Hurst is correcting last week’s Cabinet notes which spoke to the elimination of Covid-19 in Antigua & Barbuda.

He said “I have adjusted the language in paragraph 7 of the August 26, 2020, Hurst Report to reflect the accuracy of the Minister’s statement in Cabinet.
Please forgive the error.”
“7. The Minister of Health reported to Cabinet that only two active cases of Covid-19 are being treated in Antigua and Barbuda currently. If no additional cases are reported, the Minister expressed the view that it would only mean that no active cases are being treated in Antigua and Barbuda, not the elimination of the disease. The Minister cautions that there is to be no relaxation of the vigilance that has brought Antigua and Barbuda to this juncture, and cautions the population to continue to wear masks, to practice safe hygiene, and to continue to wash hands frequently. He reminds that it takes only one infected person, coming into contact with even four persons can cause domestic spread, which can lead to community spread. All are asked to conform to the regulations. A new website: www.covid.ab.gov.ag has been launched, and it contains all the regulations, the protocols, the requirements for entry, and other pertinent information that will make the management and information availability easier than ever before.”

  1. “A new website: http://www.covid.ab.gov.ag has been launched, and it contains all the regulations, the protocols, the requirements for entry, and other pertinent information that will make the management and information availability easier than ever before.” GOOD, BUT IT DOESN’T WORK.

  2. If the population of Antigua is 100,000 and only 3 people have died of covid-19, then 3 divided by 100,000 equals 0.00003 times 100 equals 0.003% death rate.
    100% minus 0.003% equals 99.997%.
    That means 99.997% of people that get infected withcovid-19 do NOT die from it.

    This whole scare was without merit… a total sham. Many people are beginning to think it was NEVER about the virus but about greater control of the people. (Loss of personal freedom). STOP THIS NOW…
