  1. Many if not all of them probably died of COVID as well.

    They also were not counted in the official numbers.

    If the government would have been honest about how deadly and serious this disease is months ago and didn’t hide those deaths, regular citizens would have been scared and took things more seriously

    • Why do you people keep blaming the government for everything? The government is not GOD! No one really thought that this virus was so deadly. I remember hurricane Hugo. We just shrugged it off until we saw the after effects. Then we started to take hurricane season seriously. Now we see what this virus is doing to human beings, we will be more alert. Same with Trump. He didn’t take it seriously and the Americans are blaming him for deaths. People— we are not GOD.

      • Ssandra , I will not read another comment from you .The nonsense that comes out of mouth on multiple occasions is appalling and is killing off my brain cells . Not even going to address all the foolish and not well informed statements you just wrote .I will leave that for someone who can tolerate it . This forum is read all over the World not just in Àntigua .

        • Bury your head in the Mud, you delusional person. Only God can control diseases. We cannot cure if there is no cure. No one take anything seriously until they see the outcome.

  2. So why did they keep her body all of this time.I knew someone who passed away.It was later found out that the person died from Covid-19.That person was buried so quickly.Some of the loved ones could not attend the Funeral.They had to be in quarantine for 14 days at their homes.Because they were in contact with her before she died.

  3. ,, a uniform COVID-19 post-mortem diagnostic protocol has not yet been developed. She,,Nicole Munroe-Baptiste was most likely,,administered a PCR test,,for Covid,post mortem,,not autopsied.

  4. Gone are the days when people died from other ailments besides covid. It could be a gun shot wound or accident covid gets all the blame like death is something new, death exist before we ever encounter this virus
