  1. Oh no another case of covid. Lets close the borders!!! We going to be dropping down like flies Barnes and Starffie go overflow!!! Says the covidiots!

    • If Antiguans start dropping like flies, even Barnes and Straffes won’t be around to collect the dead.

    • The only idiot around here is the guy who has for months been trying to minimize how serious this pandemic is

      Thousands of people are dying every day from this disease and yet the Antiguan government has instituted discriminatory and illogical protocols that do absolutely nothing to protect the citizens from disease vectors arriving from high COVID countries.

      But yes, keep up with your silly comments trying to minimize how serious this pandemic is.

      • Oh look here comes the covidiot. Coming in like mosqutio after rain!! Maybe if we lock down we will drop dead from starvation not covid.

        • If the choices are continue to let in thousands of potentially diseased tourists or everyone starve to death.

          The truth is this government could have implemented sensible protocols to protect their citizens but chose not to because the wealthy and elite didn’t want to have to shoulder any of the burden of the pandemic.

          The truth is the PM could have stopped taking a salary immediately and cut the salaries of the wealthy minsters and pensions of the wealthy former ministers to keep money in the treasury.

          They could have let LIAT go bankrupt and sold off it’s assets to pay those workers who still haven’t been paid. Instead the Antiguan government is pouring what 500K into a dying airline every month.

          Yep, someone is an idiot here. It’s you sir.

          • Yeah the covidoit still biting like a misqutio. Funny the media who y’all listening can report on how many deaths but no recovery. Funny they aint sayiny that there 98% survival rate from this so-called deadly deasies. Funny how people cant get a common cold or have sinus now. Funny that people don’t died of cancer, heart attack, car accident hell even a gun shot wound or a srabbing. Every sickness now is covid. So wheel and come anagin covidiot with your long winded crap.

          • We don’t know what the long-term ramifications of being infected with COVID are.

            But what we’ve seen so far is that thousands of people are dying from it every day. That is not something to be minimized.

            we’ve seen people re-infected weeks after recovering from an initial infection

            We’ve seen young, healthy people drop dead suddenly of MI and strokes.

            We are seeing a new variant that is more virulent in children and more children are being admitted to ICUs with this strain of SARS-2.

            We’ve seen people with reactivated disease after recovering from their initial infection like happens with other viruses such as VZ and HSV1 and HSV2.

            We are now seeing new variants of this disease that are more infectious and/or nonreactive to neutralizing antibodies. Meaning if these variants continue to spread around the world the existing vaccines may not work on them.

            This is a disease where ICU and ER doctor after doctor have described it as the worst thing they’ve ever encountered.

            So yes, numbskull this is something that should be taken with the utmost seriousness.

            And that is precisely what the Antiguan government has failed to do with their ridiculous protocols of letting in people from high COVID regions without testing them on arrival and without quarantining them.

            So keep up the propaganda if you must. I hope you’re getting paid for it.

  2. Hey moron no I font get paid cause I don’t give af about the government. But I know more people survive from this hoax assed virus than what your gods in the media report. Hope the opposition party pays you well and gives you a band aid for your fingers for typing all that long winded shyte and to keep refreshing the page. Stay blessed and remember to wear your mask!

  3. So much sickness in this world the media magnify covid only, to instill fear in the people . Fire is St.johns and a fire truck goes to St. Paul to wet up all the houses does that make sense. Alot of things dont make sense with this plandemic, hypocrisy, controversy and greed
