More females contracting virus in Antigua

Meanwhile, the CMO said more females than males are being infected with the coronavirus in Antigua.

She said of the last three confirmed cases, one is male and two are females, bringing the count to 57 males and 65 females who have been infected since the outbreak began.

“So we have slightly more females than males who have had confirmed COVID in Antigua and Barbuda,” the CMO said.

  1. Totally agree! they keep talking about about imported and non imported cases. They said the virus stem from china. Is it because we are developing into a colony of China they keep putting it that way?The virus was brought by travellers why they keep talking about imported and non imported cases? What are their motives to create more rules and regulations and say we are not responsible people. The problem is the lies and failure for them to address the problem at the root. The community is not the root, its the entrance at the borders is the root. It seems like the entire population is asymptomatic in Antigua. I hope when they are ready to start implementing more people will start resisting. Resist the DEVIL and he and his minions shall flee
