No New Cases Of COVID-19


The most recent report received by the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment from the Mount St. John’s Medical Center (MSJMC) has revealed no new laboratory confirmed COVID-19 cases in Antigua and Barbuda as of Tuesday 13th October 2020 at 6pm.

Subsequent to the publication of the dashboard on Tuesday 13th October 2020 with the cut off time of 6pm, twenty-seven samples were processed at the Mount St. John’s Medical Center’s Laboratory which increased the pending results from zero to twenty-seven.

All twenty-seven samples processed by MSJMC yielded negative results and are reflected in the total samples taken and total tested columns of the dashboard.

Consequently, the total number of persons with laboratory confirmed COVID-19 cases in Antigua and Barbuda remains at one hundred and twelve (112) with nine (9) active cases.

    Obstructed air flow keeps more carbon dioxide for extended time in masked airspace –> more carbon dioxide in lungs –>More carbon dioxide in lungs (hypercapnia) –> lowers pH –>increasing acid condition (respiratory acidosis) overwhelms compensatory mechanisms of the body –>The kidneys now have the hard job of dumping acid. How do the kidneys get rid of bad stuff? Excrete that acid in the urine. –> Urinalysis shows very low pH, bottom of the chart: pH = 5.0. That’s about as acid as coffee. Which is fine for coffee, but not so great for urine, which reflects what got taken from blood (remembering that kidneys’ main job is to clean the blood, by excreting less than ideal substances into urine for disposal).

    The moral of that story is that #masks, by way of the lungs, not only harm the brain (hypoxia), and the heart (tachycardia) and the immune system (acid favors viral replication), but also the kidneys.

    We all should be concerned that the hematuria and proteinuria may also result from this strain on the kidneys. As nephrologist Dr. Humphries says, “If you wear a mask, I hope you have strong kidneys.”

    Dr. Heinrich Warburg (A 1931 Noble Prize winner) “All forms of cancer have two basic conditions: Acidosis and Hypoxia (lack of oxygen) Cancerous tissues are acidic and healthy tissues are allaline.

    Deprive a cell 35% of it’s oxygen for 48 hours and it will become cancerous!

  2. @ DR. Lester Simon
    Do your own research. I don’t need to prove I’m correct, you need to PROVE me wrong!

    What I’ve provided here is BASIC, fairly easy to understand medical information that can be understood by most people and wouldn’t be considered controversial by any REAL doctor. Are YOU saying this isn’t true?

    I could post some publish some peer reviewed data but this site doesn’t seem to like EXTERNAL LINKS.
    BTW That type of peer reviewed information wouldn’t be easily understood by most people.

    • @Will

      Places like India and China has been wearing masks for decades kindly provide facts from these two countries proving your theory….

      East African women has been wearing mouth and nose covering (Hijab) from genesis again using data from East African countries kindly prove your theory…

      I am in no way saying you are wrong I just need physical evidence of your Theory based on real known circumstances.



    This is the issue

  4. Hold on Sir.

    1. Anyone, including Nobel Prize winners can say and write anything.

    2. We are in an era where everyone or at least many people want their 2 minutes of fame.

    3. My reference to a peer review journal is not for the public to read. Rather it’s for people like you and journalists to simply reference by noting that the contents were peer reviewed and have some weight rather than just being seemingly good advice put out without any critique.

    4. You are the one that put the article in this medium and hence the onus is on you and not me or your readers. You didn’t even do basic thing by listing the source; and you are asking or suggesting that I do the research.

    5. Science has already been through this mess you are creating: cheap talk that sounds basic and sensible without proper reference.

    6. And may I end by saying that science is simply applied organized common sense, using a well established scientific method.

    7. Do your own homework or leave the class.

  5. OK here are a few: (remove #)
    Search terms: peer reviewed journal+Acidosis and Hypoxia cause cancer

    British journal of cancer:
    PLOS Genetics: #/

  6. Regarding Dr. Humphries author of the article ‘Why Mask wearing is dangerous’ :

    Dr. Suzanne Humphries is a nephrologist in Searsmont, Maine. She has been in practice for more than 20 years. Nephrologists specialize in the kidney, treating such ailments as hypertension (high blood pressure), kidney stones and kidney failure

  7. This is not peer reviewed information. These are published reputable newspapers and magazines:

    Indian government claims this popular face mask can’t block the coronavirus

    Many in China Wear Them, but Do Masks Block Coronavirus?

    Is there a difference between a niqab and a face mask?

    • @Will
      The basis of your argument was wearing masks is dangerous to ones health.

      That argument did not mention COVID19.

      My assertion strictly relates to your theory that wearing masks is dangerous to ones health.

      Whether or not it protects against COVID19 is a separate argument.

      Please stay on point and prove your theory based on people who have been wearing face coverings since genesis.

      In other words tell me the increased rates of cancer etc especially in women Vs men in East Africa.

  8. See what I mean Mr Will:

    1. I look at the first reference only since I have work to do; and this is a quote from the conclusion:

    “However, the empirical results in combination with the mathematical modelling simulations do support the hypothesis that the hypoxia–glycolysis–acidosis cycle does occur in somatic evolution of breast cancer and that further investigation is warranted.”

    2. You need to study some more.

    3. Was the article by Dr. Suzanne Humphries published in a peer review article for her peers to critique and reproduce her findings and conclusions?

    4. You have done some homework so now you can stay in the classroom but kindly sit at the back.

  9. If its is safe to wear mask for long period of time it is safe to drive around a vehicle with a cloth covering the muffler

  10. Dr Lester Simon
    LACK OF a specific peer reviewed study in no way invalidates the thesis that ‘wearing masks is dangerous and can damage your brain, heart and kidneys… possibility even cause cancer.

    “…can stay in the classroom but kindly sit in the back”?
    You can take you condescending attitude and….

  11. Again Mr Will

    1. Do you know what is a thesis?

    2. The conclusion of the message you posted at first was “ If you wear a mask, I hope you have strong kidneys.”

    3. That was irresponsible on your part and on the part of the writer, whose name only came to light after questioning.

    4. No one is suggesting wearing masks all the time. Just a few days ago in press conference we spoke about the need for a mask break and ventilation.

    5. The condescension is yours by condescending to an article by cutting and pasting it with an irresponsible conclusion that is looking for sound bytes.

    6. Since you are so good at it, you should copy and paste more, as punishment in lieu of writing lines, in the classroom all by yourself.

    Every good wish.

    • Dr. Simon
      Thesis definition – a proposition stated or put forward for consideration, especially one to be discussed and proved or to be maintained against objections.

      So, you are admitting to the need for a mask break and ventilation. Well, that’s a beginning.
      You didn’t, unfortunately elaborate further as to why y’all came to that conclusion. Could it be that you know it increases CO2, and hence respiratory acidosis which was the articles main point?

      • Dr. Simon,
        I researched your bio and found that you are a respected consultant Pathologist at MSJMC and Medpath Lab. Very impressive.

        At least there is at least ONE THING we DO agree on. “TESTING WON’T SAVE YOU”
        I’m NOT a doctor or ever studied medicine but I do have a brain and can reason fairly well. I usually can detect bullshit when I hear it, and there is a bunch of it coming out of the mouths of so called ‘experts’ these days, like Dr. Anthony Fausi, Bill Gates, Dr. Deborah Birx, W.H.O. and CDC etc. So, you’ll have to excuse me if I sound SKEPTICAL Of alleged ‘experts.’

  12. Dr Lester Simon
    On a related subject:
    Since you are a skeptic, please explain this statistical analysis.

    Total US deaths in 2018 – 2,839,205
    Total US deaths in 2019 – 2,855,000
    Total US deaths in 2020 up to Sept 29 – 2,130,000
    Total US deaths in 2020 if you project to year end at same rate – 2,838,000
    So where are the 220,000 Wuhan deaths? Deaths’ should be like 9 % HIGHER but they are flat, actually a bit lower than last year.

    Looks like the CDC hid the actual information that less than 6 % actually died OF the Wuhan Virus which would be 12,000 because that would not fit the fear mongering narrative.
    Want some more numbers?

    The average age of death so far from Wuhan Virus is 78. US life expectancy is 78.3 So basically those who died WITH the Virus, most of them would have died anyways.
    The numbers that are coming out are showing more and more that this thing is a scam. Sure, it is a new virus, sure it is very contagious, but the TRUE death numbers are nowhere near what the world media is blasting. Anyone wonder why China says they had 85,000 cases and 4,500 deaths?

    If we tested all deaths for the flu, chances are we would have around 500,000 deaths FROM the Flu, when actually those are just deaths WITH the flu, but of other causes [assuming only 20% of the population had the flu in the last 9 months].

  13. Mr Will

    1. I am not a skeptic by any stretch of the imagination.

    2. I can’t understand how you came to that conclusion.

    3. You cut and pasted a serious article with an irresponsible conclusion without saying who was the author, until prompted to do so.

    4. A simple search showed that the author was accused of lying about another medical matter.

    5. Whether that accusations is true or false I cannot say.

    2. I am not a skeptic. I am a medical scientist or pathologist.

    3. I am very busy.

    Every good wish.
