  1. How did it jump from 32 to 42 Covid-19 deaths? When for some time now it was 32.Last week the Dashboard did say 32 Deaths.Was someone playing games with the deaths? Were they juggling figures?

  2. Look for the numbers to rise exponentially to justify vaccination. Remember for months Antigua had few cases and just before the first shipment of vaccines was due to arrive on the island, the covid-19 numbers went through the roof. The dashboard is back again to facilitate their fear tactic and mind control of the population. Wake up people and put pressure on the government to start providing safe and effective alternative treatments to covid-19 patients such as Ivermectin, budesonide, and hydroxychloroquine, zinc, vitamin D3, and quercitin or as individuals start to boost your immune system with some of these vitamins.

    Stay safe everyone and may the Lord give each of you the strength and wisdom to maneuver during these difficult times. God bless all of you!

  3. The Prime Minister explained why the death toll increased, and it was due to deaths unrelated to COVID but tests later revealed the person had COVID. And please get vaccinated! Long term effects of COVID-19 can be dangerous to the heart, the lungs and the brain, even for those with no or mild symptoms. Hydroxychloroquine is NOT effective, but actually can be dangerous.
