  1. First let’s give God thanks that for a second time around, our dash board can reflect zero infected cases…. Yes, there might be an argument that within the communities, there just might be some cases lingering around…. If that is so, then we the citizens of this beautiful & blessed nation needs to display our civic duty. The authorities can’t be blame if we do not report any cases that we know of or any irresponsible person who should be in quarentine and refrain from doing so…. Kudos to the health authorities, us the populace and Gaston Browne’s administration for the fight with Covid, our invisible enemy.. One thing I must add, the information of fighting this virus needs to be constantly in our faces. As a result Bulletin boards need to be erected at strategic locations throughout the island & catchy jingles should be constantly be played on the airwaves
