Health Minister Molwyn Joseph released data late Thursday showing 23 young people, 18 years and under, had contracted COVID-19 in Antigua & Barbuda over the past 45 days.

 

“COVID has now taken a direct strike on the young people of Antigua & Barbuda,” the Minister cautioned.

 

He said the coronavirus used to primarily affect the elderly, but the data is now showing “a lot more young people in their 20s, 30s, and 40s are coming down regularly with the virus.”

 

“Twenty-three children in about 45 days in Antigua & Barbuda have contracted this virus and have become ill. One of them is in the hospital right now, a 4-year-old,” the Minister revealed.

He said the figure included two 18-year-olds.

“We have a 7-month-old who died at the hospital from COVID, a 7-month-old. We have, within the last 45 days, an 11-month-old, a 1-year-old, 2-year-old, a 4-year-old, a 5-year-old, two 6-year-old, a 7-year-old, a 9-year-old, a 10-year-old, three 12-year-old, a 13-year-old, three 15-year-old, one 16-year-old, two 17-year-old and two 18-year-old,” Joseph reported.

 

The Health Minister said people who chose not to get vaccinated were contributing to children in the country becoming ill and dying from COVID-19.

 

“The adults in this country must understand they are doing a disservice to the young people of Antigua & Barbuda, who do not have it within their own authority to make decisions for themselves,” he said.

 

Joseph insisted “children in our country should not be the victim of irresponsible adult behaviour.”

    • Even if they are accurate, who believes anything from the mouth of that messenger. They need to take a back seat and let someone who is actually qualified for their job do the talking. The reason most persons are skeptical about the vaccine is because people are weary of the dishonesty of the messengers.

  1. I did not realized. There was another death by Covid-19 in Antigua.I looked at the Dashboard a day ago and did not see any changes.

    • He stated within the past 45 days. Looking at the dashboard for July 21, 2021, there was 42 deaths. Search the news archives and you will see the mention of the 7 month old child who died and had Covid. Recall the mom being upset because the she felt the hospital did not recognize it as covid early enough. It was mentioned in the cabinet press conference on the 22nd and the covid dashboard that day reflected an additional death. If you have not gotten vaccinated, please with urgency go and get it done

      • The vaccine does not prevent covid nor does it prevent you from spreading it to your children, wearing your mask and sanitizing is a better approach in preventing covid.

      • Tenman,I remembered the story of the baby’s death.However,they did not know.What the baby died from at that time.The Mother was very upset.

  2. Mr. Minister,

    How all of a sudden u find the data for the kids, when u never want to publish nothing before a wa r u a try now……..smh

    • All in their attempt to inject our children with the vaccine! I’m just tired of them trying to present “facts” to coerce people into doing what they are trying to mandate.

    • We have been asking for more data and none was forthcoming. Pfizer is now here for the kids, so all of a sudden we have endless data about kids. SMH.

      Also, note that they now release the information on those who are vaccinated becuase the campaign for the third booster shot is starting.

      The funny thing, we don’t manufacture COVID in Antigua, and we had several weeks with Zero cases. So where did it come from? The airport was open during those Zero cases days, so what has changed, what policies did we change? I can recall one, vaccinated individuals no longer need to quarantine, they can walk right through and go to work the next day. How many persons will they infect before they realize they might have contracted it along the way?

  3. A the vaccine a cause that as before the vaccine trial there were no strange variants the we started hear this and that country variants but the demons an them change the names to Delta etc just to stop persons from tracking them location wise but one hot place reserve for them in he’ll if them no repent

  4. This information is to get parents lining up to get their children jabbed.

    Where there is no transparency lies become the new truth.

    • MELCHESIDEC you are sounding more and more like a philosopher. I need to drink some of what you are drinking.

  5. We know this is the case with the delta variant in the USA. Way more contagious and is infecting and killing young people. Now we same the same here. But you anti vaxxers still keep going. Don’t let that stop you. Want to infect your own family, that’s your right isn’t it?

    • The bible is fullfiling and no vaccine can stop what is to come. Turn to God! He created the people who call them self sciencantis. How is it that people believe that mankind have power to protect us from what the bible said is to be. The whole world needs to pray. There’s worst to come than COVID-19. Read the book of Amos, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Exodus, Leviticus, Revelation the bible is where you will find comfort not from a drug that has not being pass by FDA. People open your eyes this world is changing and nothing we do can stop it. Go to God.

  6. Ummm and this data/message is released as appointments open for children and young people to take Pfizer before returning to school.

    Sir Health…. Messaging is all about timing & honesty. Your PR person may be able to advise you.

  7. All of a sudden, the information is being shared NOW by the minister?

    The information was not important before?

    Trupz, Trupz, Trupz.

  8. So everytime a new batch of vaccine arrive it’s a rise In corona cases or children has to be vaccinated because phyzer is here. Last year we had far more cases but yet no children was recorded to have caught the virus .I would really like to see the real science or the fictional science behind this joke thing.

    • Why Everytime that a Vaccine is available their is a rise in the covid figures I am a bit suspicious on the figures presented by the minister stating that 22children have the desease range from the age of months to 18years in the last 45 days.This is crucial information why the public was not informed of this important announcement before how many of these children would have mixed with their pairs maybe at football game cricket etc was it was for the health care service to get the information out to the public rather than the minister.He should be charged criminally for a Crime against humanity and you know the penalty

  9. Where are the doctors and nurses of this nation? Why are they being told to stay in their lane? We don’t want to hear nothing from no one that did not study medicine. Stay in ur lane and let the qualified persons speak. Kids was going to hospital all the time jus that now every other reason is on hold. The information keep changing as the agenda changes.
    Agenda:🤔 “we have phizer lets give kids.”
    Information: all the kids are getting covid. One died but is a ghost on the dashboard.😂😂😂 this is stand up comedy at its best.
    Am tired of these idiots disrespecting our intelligence.

  10. Children has been getting it since February. I had a child in my class whose mom told me her daughter had it. The student was absent for a few days before I enquired about her and that’s when I was informed. The mom said that the ministry of health told her not to say anything. If me ah lie, me a lie based on what the mother said. I won’t call any names but me know subben fishy about this yah right now. Is this the next drive for the “unvaccinated, irresponsible adults” as the Health Minister claims, to be vaccinated. So ALL unvaccinated people out there is VERY IRRESPONSIBLE? I’LL BE PRAYING FOR ALL WHO HAS CONTRACTED THIS VIRUS, THE HEALTH CARE WORKERS AND OTHER FRONT LINE WORKERS AND FOR THE UNVACCINATED SINCE ALL WE THE VACCINATED ARE SAFE, NOT IN THE HOSPITAL AND HAVE NOT DIED ANY WHERE AROUND THE WORLD INCLUDING THIS FAIR ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA YA.

  11. I heard Bill Gates said he wants to control the world but in order to do so, he has to depopulate the world. Anthony Fauci said the vaccine will mess with people’s DNA. So, will the vaccine, after been injected in our children, cause them to become sterile? Enquiring minds would like to know.

    • Control the world in what way? Dude is rich as f*ck yet has never even attempted to run for president or form a political party.

      Stop believing everything you read on the Internet.

      P.S the world is not flat

      • @James…mos def, Bill Gates is rich as fuck! No doubt!

        A…research his family legacy’s/history in terms of #EUGENICS and the works of Margaret Sanger.

        B…The influence which the Gates Foundation has on world governments, colleges/universities dealing with everything from gene research to global warming.
        Harvard University Engineers with full funding from Gates is now spraying chemicals(dust particles in the stratosphere/atmosphere to block out the suns rays, to help correct what his fore parents fucked up.
        Therefore, Gates doesn’t need to run for #president, governor, or any political office. He controls these fuckers with his money!

  12. The devil is like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. 2Corinthians 4 – If the gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost. In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not… In these last days we are living in, the devil is looking souls before the second coming of Jesus Christ and that’s the real reason behind this pandemic. But God is still on the throne. When He says enough is enough, there shall be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. Be blessed.

  13. To be honest, this country has been fed so much effing bullshit that MAYBE now the reality is coming home to roost, they cant give us anything legible to believe. No doctor from first world countries have confirmed anything even REMOTELY close to this new crap. Wheel and come again!!

  14. They will do and say Anything to meet their quota ( herd immunity).Not enough Adults taking the Jab, so now they trying to reach it by adding Kids to the numbers, and if they don’t get your kids, better start watching your dogs and pets, they already have Covid!!

  15. Why Everytime that a Vaccine is available their is a rise in the covid figures I am a bit suspicious on the figures presented by the minister stating that 22children have the desease range from the age of months to 18years in the last 45 days.This is crucial information why the public was not informed of this important announcement before how many of these children would have mixed with their pairs maybe at football game cricket etc was it was for the health care service to get the information out to the public rather than the minister.He should be charged criminally for a Crime against humanity and you know the penalty
