  1. Taking out covid with everyone having under lying conditions paint a dire picture as to the health of Antiguans so far!!!!

  2. Dr. Duncan, please be clear,
    Did the unfortunate gentleman die of covid
    OR of the ailment he went to hospital for treatment?
    Did covid hasten his death?
    Most people admitted to MSJMC appear to test positive in the A&E area, before entering the building.

    The public would like statistics on heart attack, stroke, diabetic, hypertensive & cancer deaths for January to June 2021, that we may compare them to the reported ‘covid deaths’ –
    OR are they one and the same?

    People, protect yourself…
    Mask up, distance, sanitize, exercise, eat healthy & drink at least 1.5L water every day.
