  1. To the Government if Antigua, I’m asking for a friend.

    What is the plan to move forward !?! Covid isn’t going anywhere on any particular day!?! So do we keep looking for ways to keep the people locked up? If so, until when…. any particular day in sight !?! Because the numbers have been down to zero for many weeks then increased, then decreased, that’s just how it is and will be, because covid is here… not leaving… it’s something our world now has..: so HOW DO WE DEAL!?! Cause we can’t stay locked up forever… people will all start traveling and life will go on !?!

    Will we continue To have people quarantined for 14 days… many countries have done away with this now that they are understanding covid.

    Many countries have found safe ways to continue daily existence when In Antigua the banks, the financial backbone of our country, still do not have regular hours.

    It seems like most of our resources are going into scaring the public, forcing the public into submission, threatening with fines and jail time just for simply their human existence.

    Maybe Antigua leaders should themselves, find a source of education concerning the transmission of the covid 19 virus, the potency of the virus today, things to do once the virus is contracted, BecUse the fact is, IT IS A VIRUS. You can get it, survive and move on.

    Once the leaders have this education, then maybe they can have zoom constituency meetings or physical constituency meetings over a few nights to educate the public. Following protocols of course.

    This is just a thought. Since it seems like the leaders of the country are stuck back in March 2020, when so much progress has been made in studying the virus and how people can CONTINUE TO LIVE A HEALTHY AND SAFE NEW NORMAL LIFESTYLE.

    Please let the people Of Antigua live A healthy and safe new normal life style void of the constant hysterics, fear, dictatorship behavior and threats being spewed every week by the government to lock up and fine people who are already under employed.

    Antigua’s government insist on driving the fear of God into its citizens by threatening and keeping them isolated from normal life every week.

    We already have God! What we need is efficient governance.

    …. just asking for a friend … smh

  2. To the Government of Antigua, on behalf of a friend.

    You are doing better than most countries around the globe in dealing with this pandemic. Look at the UK, America and the most of Europe, and You’ll find that Covid-19 is running rife, because people are not paying attention to Governmental or scientific advice.

    I applaud the way you have handled this wicked virus from the get-go!

    You have informed, warned and applied the correct course of action that leave the people of Antigua in no doubt of the consequences if ignored.

    Finding the balance between safety and trying to keep your economy going is to be admired. Take business for instance, many of them had to confirm to the safety of their patrons, and you ensured, for them to re-open, they had to confirm to Governmental guidelines before issuing safety certificates – you are leading by example. Well done (I wish the UK would do the same)!

    In contrast, the virus is running amok here in the UK, with half the population doing whatever they like and the other in lockdown. All because of the mixed messages coming from the UK Parliament – What a mess!!!


    Here’s a thought. Antiguans don’t let the naysayers like Miss Mal make you believe that you can take a relax attitude to this virus, because it takes no prisoners, and its soaring again – as I speak – in the UK.

    Antigua, there is nothing hysterical about Covid-19, and also, there’s a big big difference between being dictatorial and being given good Governmental advice.

    … on behalf of a friend – WBW (Works Both Ways) Miss Mal

    STAY SAFE and Keep up the good work in fighting this virus Antigua – GOD IS GOOD!!!

    Love Antigua

    • Brixtonian please ! I advise you stay in the Uk as u said so many times. People in Antigua knows the hardship we are going through so please write your letters to your queen and let the Antiguans here do what we must.

      The woman is right! People are fed up… nobody is saying we are not taking it seriously but come on man not even bank opening hours people can go.

      Thank u miss Mal … the hysteria is the problem
