  1. 119 cases of Covid-19 in Antigua and Barbuda ??? Are those the correct numbers? Molwyn Joseph come clean.

    • There are13 in the hospital?
      9 mild
      2 moderate
      2 severe
      So the remainder 106 who are not hospitalized, what category would they be placed under? Is this saying that the majority of persons who gets this virus is OK enough to be at home? I am by no means saying that those who fit under a particular category isn’t very ill but looking at the statistics presented, I am just wondering…

  2. The cases are climbing slowly but surely…. Instead of criticizing if u do not believe in taking the vaccine, why not offer a positive suggestion as to how to prevent the infections from escalating….. United we stand & divided we fall……Its all about nation building if u really love this country

  3. 109 active cases + 26 new cases=135 cases – 8 recovery =127 active cases. Am I reading something wrong?
