  1. So many breaches of the protocols between yesterday and today. From isolated persons mixing with family, to tung looking like jouvert, to inside gatherings of 40 for xmas dinner, to no masks worn at all.
    We will see what the fallout will be. I guess if minister of health does not ban uk flights, then john public sees no need to take any of the variant strains (the uk strain, the SouthAfrica strain, the wuhan strain, the chinese strain, the santodomingo strain) serious.

  2. And few V are taking it seriously because the government told them for months it wasn’t a problem, were covid free

    And now there’s no apparatus to test sick people in the community

    People are just staying home for 1 day and then back to work.

    No isolating for 14 days. No getting tested.

    This will be nothing short of a disaster.

  3. I have given up too many of my liberties to see us through the pandemic for me to stay quiet!!
    If unnno antigua people nuh fraid COVID, then let’s go back to how life was December 2019. If unno know that what unno ah do can cause covid fu spread, then stop it.

    It can’t be both, it can’t be AMBER. It is green or red til vaccine reach. Mek Up UNNO MINDS.
