  1. I this dashboard should not be dated Dec 15, since there is only information up through Dec 13. Dates on dashboard should reflect the time of updated info not publication date as there’s always a lag.

  2. Only 5 ACTIVE CASES of Covid-19 in Antigua? How do you know of that. Because the Government tells us so.If you do believed that.Then I have some ocean front property to sell you in the Greencastle area.

  3. From my knowledge we have 1 imported case that resulted in death. Why is the dashboard now saying 2. That lady is an Antiguan that lives here, so where does the importation come from?

    In addition there are two yacht workers from English harbor that were been hospitalized for covid one was recently released and the other remains in the hospital. Why is it we weren’t informed of that?

    This government needs to be transparent and not put $$$$ before life…..
