  1. Every time 1 recover 1 new case , that seems like fictitious figures always remaining the same, the lower the cases more restrictions, sometimes it seems like cases are manufactured to continue controlling the people.

    “A class of 40 students do an exam each one get the same answers wrong continuously is it not a cause for concern?”

    How come the cases always the same from since march? after i type this i will see a difference in the numbers

    The same statistics for that period of time doesn’t add up

    • Countries that have better protocols have higher numbers than Antigua

      Antigua doesn’t test or quarantine tourists and active cases are always 9 or below
