  1. 702 Active Cases,95 Deaths,too many. More deaths that many Caribbean Islands of similar populations. Where did we go wrong? What did we do right? Just hoping we as a Nation learnt somethings from this Pandemic for future similar situations. Like the Leaders going out there and talking with the People. Not be abrasive, condescending, nasty,and expects a positive solution.
