Proposal to allow unvaccinated passengers into Antigua placed on hold



The Cabinet met virtually, for the third time since the New Year began. All Ministers were present.

The Covid-19 pandemic that has challenged economies around the world, remained a primary item of discussion and decision-making for the Cabinet of Antigua and Barbuda.

The proposal to allow unvaccinated visitors to enter into Antigua and Barbuda with the benefit of a rapid antigen or PCR Test, was placed on hold until more data can be gathered.

The progression of the Omicron variant is being evaluated.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has noted that the restrictions inhibit travel and make it more costly to travel, but does not make travel any less risky.

The Cabinet will revisit the subject next week when it convenes. All Covid-19 protocols remain in place.

  1. Finally, some common sense. It is not all about winning the next election or the tourist dollar. 4 covid patients just died at the hospital. Health must come first.

    • Are you sure these dead covid patients were not all vaccinated? I guess you’re not aware that the vaccinated viral load is as HIGH as the unvaccinated– the risks are the same from both.
      Based on the data, the barring from entry of the unvaccinated is no longer about risk — it’s all about punishment for being non compliant. And you’re mad because you believe you should have some special privilege for being obedient.

      • The stupidity of the of some people is so ridiculous. The vaccinated transmit and catch covid just as much if not more than the unvaccinated. All my friends that were vaccinated have covid so what’s the point of the restrictions? To be quite honest I think the vaccinated are the ones spreading the virus. This has nothing to do with health and you better believe that, it’s a control and power grabbing for government s around the world.
        Funny how the yearly flu no longer exist, variants after variants. None that you can go to a testing site and get tested for. Everything now is covid, give me a break.

  2. It doesn’t matter if you are vaccinated or not when it comes to spreading the virus. Both can spread it. All that counts is to have everyone tested with PCR

    • @ Woody : Thank you that was simple and precise so even the Dunce can understand.
      @ Not So Common is a Common idiot..
      The phone is not just to play with educate yourself

    • @woody. Indeed.

      Let us please maintain masks, distancing & sanitizing. These straightforward actions do assist in controlling spread.

      • @Stay Alert
        Show even ONE peer reviewed scientific study that proves mask, distancing & sanitizing do anything to curb transmission. You can’t because none exist.
        These thing are all about COMPLIANCE. You are OBEYING your way to total a loss of your freedoms.

        • The evidence about masking is there, you just choose to ignore it because of your political bent. And there is no amount of research that will convince you otherwise.

          • @Say What
            Researchers (including a CDC doctor) for a February 2021 article published by the Journal of the American Medical Association reviewed data from 10 previous studies conclude mask wearing substantially reduces spread. They write that wearing a cloth mask can reduce transmission of exhaled droplets from infected wearers into the air by around 50% to 70%. Additionally, masks were shown to help prevent uninfected wearers from inhaling large respiratory droplets. Overall, the authors found mask wearing’s main benefit is source control, which protects others by reducing the number of respiratory droplets released, rather than respiratory protection, which protects the wearer. Peer reviewed.

            OK, SOME evidence exists but one needs to ask, to what degree do they protect and at at what risk to the wearer. The study quoted above admits to SOME protection but not complete protection. There is the question remains of how many of these doctors have been bought off by the ‘deepstate’ to advance the NWO agenda.

            At what risk, well they reduce oxygen to the brain (not beneficial) and they trap bacteria within the mask which is continually re-breathed… these is dangerous (MOST of the people who died in the 1918 flu pandemic died from pneumonia from mandated mask wearing)

            You didn’t even respond to the part about masks being all about political COMPLIANCE.

  3. Gaston Browne being the dutty dog he is stopping our people from coming back.

    I have changed my mind as Gaston Browne can’t be trusted. I will not vote for him or his party again.

    I apologise for my stripper pole comments.

  4. So where’s the latest dashboard with the 419 newly diagnosed infections and 4 deaths?

    The vaccines are outdated (they’re based on an extinct early version of the virus) but can still reduce the likelihood of being hospitalized to some degree. Nobody should be traveling to foreign countries while unvaccinated because of the higher risk of ending up in a ventilator in a foreign hospital. Unvaccinated and vaccinated are both catching the virus, spreading the virus, getting symptomatic and dying but unvaccinated folks are dying more often….for now. If the virus continues to change dramatically, vaccinated people may no longer be more protected from poor outcomes. We’re already seeing an increase in the deaths despite the talk about omicron being “milder and less deadly”. Over 10,000 people died of COVID-19 yesterday. Some of the countries that have moving towards removing all restrictions and pretending the virus is the flu are now seeing death rates that will exceed 10,000 a month. And there’s a new version of the omicron virus that no longer looks different from delta on PCR tests and it’s already begun to challenge the original omicron in parts of the EU.

    Can’t say this enough times – this is no flu virus. People should keep trying not to catch it or to catch it again. The less times you catch it the better. It’s confirmed to be a systemic disease, meaning that it attacks your whole body via the bloodstream…it doesn’t just stay in your lungs. Even asymptomatic people have reported long Covid symptoms. They’ve now confirmed that some people who catch Covid have damage done to their Autonomic nervous system, which the special nervous system separate from your brain that controls a whole lot of automatic (involuntary)functions in the background to keep you alive. There’s damage to the kidneys and pancreas also confirmed in some cases. There’s damage to the olfactory receptors in your nose, with permanently reduced ability to smell, which in turn may alter eating habits in a negative way. Persons with Ebstein Barr virus infection ( in especially young people) are also found to be much more likely to report at least one or two long COVID symptoms months after infection. And catching Covid doesn’t give you lasting immunity…you only get some natural immunity protection from the same virus you caught but that only lasts up to 4 months, according to long-term research data. The main reason is that no matter how you got your antibodies (vaccine or infection), antibody level drop in just few months and once that happens your immune system can no longer prevent an infection once exposed.

  5. In a National Pulse article:
    New York Times Admits Unvaxxed People Have ‘Lower Rates of Infection And Hospitalization’ Of COVID-19 Than The Vaxxed.

    The New York Times admitted that individuals unvaccinated against COVID-19 who previously contracted the virus had “lower rates of infection and hospitalization than those protected by vaccines alone.”

  6. You are claiming that the damage you mention is attributed to the virus. I say show a scientific peer reviewed study that says that. I think a case can be made that it is VACCINE damage instead.

    COVID19 vaccines (Dec’2020 – present)

    Number of Adverse vaccine Reactions 1,017,001
    Number of Deaths 21,382
    # of Birth Defects after vaccination 786
    # of Permanent Disabilities after vaccination 36,758

    • You are spewing misinformation again. These figures are bogus, there is no peer reviewed study that links the vaccine to the death, birth defect or disability figures quoted above. Prove it. And quantify adverse reactions by type.

      • OK fine, have it your way… Vaxx yourself up till you die.
        My information is NOT misinformation… ten’s of thousands of doctors are agreeing with me. Are you sure YOU aren’t the one exhibiting either bias or purposeful disinformation to further an agenda?

          • Quote from the article: The New Abnormal
            …for the past year we have witnessed tens of thousands of physicians, medical experts and researchers coming forward publicly with harsh and even damning criticisms of how the ruling medical agencies have mishandled the pandemic.
            They easily recognize these agencies’ contradictions, the conflicts of interest with the pharmaceutical industry, the large body of medical literature deconstructing and discrediting their fundamental claims, and the evidence to prove their policies are scientifically baseless.
            These are not dissident mavericks. Over 52,000 medical professionals representing some of the world’s leading medical schools and research institutions have already signed the Great Barrington Declaration in protest against the official Covid-19 strategies and these policies’ serious adverse effects on the physical and mental health of children, working class citizens and the poor.
            Moreover, they have nothing to gain. No financial interests jeopardize their judgments. And they are fully aware of the pushback and blacklisting that may follow and would injure their reputations.
            Around the world, dissident medical voices are warning us that:
            The official death counts, particularly in the US and the UK are grossly exaggerated.
            Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) was never created to be used as a diagnostic tool to determine Covid-19 infection or any other virus. Over-reliance upon PCR is a travesty that has created a Case-pandemic rather an actual symptomatic scourge.
            The evidence to support the belief that large social lockdowns and social distancing, perhaps even mask wearing, will deter the spread of the virus is overstated and inaccurate.
            America’s official narrative, where the number of cases per capita far surpass any other nation, that effective, safe and cheaper drugs such as Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) have no value and post serious harm is completely unfounded. Rather, if used wisely it is highly effective and safe as a preventative measure for first stage treatment of mild and moderate infections.
            A compilation of 210 studies on HCQ’s effectiveness against Covid-19, 145 peer reviewed, only found 26 that showed the cheap, widely used drug posed some risks or was ineffective. The remainder clearly indicates that HCQ is one of our best and most reliable courses of treatment. For example a study of 585 patients treated with HCQ along with azithromycin and zinc were relieved in under 3 days and none were hospitalized, required ventilation or died. Another study published in the journal Clinical and Translational Science reported 73% reduction in hospitalization with no serious adverse events.
            In the meantime, we are told we must wait for a vaccine or a new miracle drug and no other medical intervention is warranted other than personal hygienic practices, masks and social distancing.
            The New York Times and other major media outlets are misrepresenting new cases of Covid-19 with the actual disease, thereby grossly inflating those who may be positive but are otherwise healthy and pose no public threat.
            The WHO’s, CDC’s and NHS’ internal confusion and culture of inconsistency are leaving more and more citizens questioning who can be trusted. Even the otherwise conservative British Medical Journal published a rare and brutal condemnation of the corruption and commercialization throughout the official Covid-19 narrative. BMJ’s executive editor Kamran Abbasi wrote:
            “Science is being suppressed for political and financial gain. Covid-19 has unleashed state corruption on a grand scale, and it is harmful to public health.1 Politicians and industry are responsible for this opportunistic embezzlement. So too are scientists and health experts. The pandemic has revealed how the medical-political complex can be manipulated in an emergency—a time when it is even more important to safeguard science.”
            Sadly mainstream media such as the New York Times, Washington Post and BBC are revealing a lack of journalistic integrity despite the open accessibility of medical studies to the contrary. Instead the media serves as an echo chamber to continue advancing this international debacle created by our leading health officials…
            The damning evidence, exposing this heinous crime against humanity, is everywhere to be found, if only the sheep would open their eyes and minds, and then recognize what this CV-19 fake pandemic has always been about: the inbred, insane few controlling and ruling over the disenfranchised many:
            COVID has Caused Tens of Thousands of Medical Doctors and Scientists to Wake Up to Corruption in the Medical Industry

  7. If you’re a healthy person with no underlying medical conditions you are unlikely to end up on a ventilator by catching Omicron. It’s characteristically like influenza. It affects the upper respiratory tract. There are places where Delta is still circulating — although to a lesser degree, it’s not totally gone. Any infection that’s going deeper into the lungs is not Omicron.

    Antibodies are not the only source of protection from infection. There’s an innate intelligence that your body has. After infection, you develop memory B and and T cells — they become your watchmen for future infection of the same virus. They respond quickly if you become infected with that same pathogen. Memory B cells gets the ball rolling for production of antibodies upon reinfection.There are people who STILL have immunity from the first SARS infection back in 2003. It is not true that you you cannot develop long lasting immunity to Covid. They is evidence of people with immunity 18 months later. We’ll only know how much longer it lasts as time goes by. I’ll bet it will be as long as 2003 SARS.
    Search: SARS- CoV-2 specific T cell immunity in cases of Covid-19

    There have been studies that shows people with high levels of vitamin D are unlikely to end up in ICU. Adequate levels of Zinc will prevent loss of taste and smell. A healthy functioning immunity system is your army — it can also be your enemy if it’s unhealthy.

  8. Lol @ Brixtonia , Angel and Sugar Apple – Welcome back , you guys went quite for a minute it seems.
    The talking points and false narratives are relentless so must the re-education.
    Always a good read thank you guys blessings.

  9. Some idiot government spokesman was on TV claiming that the Vax entry mandate hadn’t stopped tourists coming to Antigua. He stuttered and became evasive however when asked about the continued exclusion of unvaxxed NATIONALS seeking to return home. We can’t have two sets of rules for different people was the jist of his reply. These corrupt fools have no shame. Putting to one side the evidence that the jabs are dangerous and don’t work anyway, with vaxxed tourists spreading the disease on the island at will, of course there should be different rules for nationals and non nationals. Even the UK and US do not bar their unvaxxed nationals from returning home. But Antigua is up for sale and run for Massa and his hotels. Pure slave mentality. Omicron has killed this scam anyway.

  10. @Say What?
    Re: Tens of thousands??? Prove it.

    A large team of more than 1,000 lawyers and over 10,000 medical experts, led by Dr. Reiner Fuellmich, has initiated legal proceedings against the CDC, WHO and the Davos Group for crimes against humanity.

    Fuellmich and his team present the incorrect PCR test and the order for doctors to describe any comorbidity death as a Covid death – as fraud.

    The PCR test was never designed to detect pathogens and is 100% inaccurate at 35 cycles. All PCR tests monitored by the CDC are set at 37 to 45 cycles. The CDC acknowledges that tests over 28 cycles are not allowed for a positive reliable result.

    This invalidates over 90% of the alleged Covid cases / “infections” detected by the use of this incorrect test.

    In addition to the incorrect tests and fraudulent death certificates, the “experimental” vaccine itself violates Article 32 of the Geneva Convention.

    Under Article 32 of the 1949 Geneva Convention, “mutilation and medical or scientific experiments not required for the medical treatment of a protected person” are prohibited.

    According to Article 147, conducting biological experiments on protected persons is a serious breach of the Convention.

    The “experimental” vaccine violates all 10 Nuremberg codes – which carry the death penalty for those who try to break these international laws.

    This is a “leaky” gene therapy that does not provide immunity to Covid and claims that they reduce the symptoms, but double-vaccinated are now 60% of patients who need ER or ICU with covid infections.

    This gene therapy does not provide immunity and the double vaccine can still catch and spread the virus.

    This gene therapy does not reduce deaths from the infection. Double-vaccinated people infected with Covid have also died.

    This gene therapy still allows the virus to spread because it gives zero immunity to the virus.

    This gene therapy still allows transmission of the virus because it does not confer immunity to the virus.

    The following violations of the Nuremberg Code apply:

    No person should be forced to take a medical experiment without informed consent.

    Many media, political and non-medical people urge people to take the injection.

    They do not provide information about the negative effects or dangers of this gene therapy. All you hear from them is – “safe and effective” and “the benefits outweigh the risks.”

    Countries use blockades, coercion and threats to force people to take this vaccine or are banned from participating in free society under the mandate of a vaccine pass or Green Pass.

    During the Nuremberg trials, the media were also prosecuted and members were killed for lying to the public, along with many of the doctors and Nazis found guilty of crimes against humanity.

    As mentioned above, gene therapy does not meet the criteria for a vaccine and does not offer immunity to the virus. There are other medical treatments that give fruitful results against Covid, such as Ivermectin, vitamin D, vitamin C, zinc and strengthened immune system for flu and colds.

    This gene therapy skipped animal experiments and went directly to human experiments.

    In mRNA research used by Pfizer – a candidate study on mRNA with rhesus macaques monkeys using BNT162b2 mRNA and in that study all monkeys developed pneumonia but the researchers considered the risk low because these were young healthy monkeys from 2-4 years of age.

    Israel has used Pfizer and the International Court of Justice has accepted a requirement that 80% of recipients with pneumonia should be injected with this gene therapy.

    Despite this alarming development, Pfizer continued to develop its mRNA for Covid, without animal testing.

    Since the launch of the experiment and listed under the CDC VAERS reporting system, over 4,000 deaths and 50,000 vaccine injuries have been reported in the United States. In the EU, more than 7,000 deaths and 365,000 vaccine injuries have been reported. This is a serious violation of this code.

    See No. 4, based on fact-based medical data, this gene therapy causes death and injury. Previous research on mRNA also shows several risks that have been ignored for this current experimental gene experiment. A 2002 study of SARS-CoV-1 nail proteins showed that they cause inflammation, immunopathology, blood clots and inhibit Angiotensin 2 expression. This experiment forces the body to produce this nail protein that inherits all these risks.

    Covid-19 has a recovery rate of 98-99%. Vaccine damage, death, and adverse side effects of mRNA gene therapy far outweigh this risk.

    The use of “leaky” vaccines was banned for agricultural use by the US and the EU due to the Marek Chicken study which shows “hot viruses” and variants appear… make the disease even more deadly.

    Nevertheless, this has been ignored for human use by the CDC aware that the risk of new, more deadly variants arises from leaky vaccinations. The CDC is fully aware that the use of leaky vaccines facilitates the emergence of hotter (more deadly) strains. Yet they have ignored this when it comes to humans

    No preparations were made. This gene therapy skipped animal experiments. The pharmaceutical companies’ own clinical phase 3 studies will not end until 2022/2023. These vaccines were approved in an emergency

    Use only action to force on a misinformed public. They are NOT FDA approved.

    Politicians, the media and actors who claim that this is a safe and effective vaccine are not qualified. Propaganda is not medical science.

    Many stores such as Walmart & drive-through vaccine centers are not qualified to administer experimental medical gene therapies to the uninformed public.

    Despite the call from over 85,000 doctors, nurses, virologists and epidemiologists – the experiment does not end. In fact, there are currently many attempts to change laws to enforce vaccine compliance.

    This includes mandatory and mandatory vaccinations. Experimental “sprayers” are planned every six months without using the growing number of deaths and injuries already caused by this experiment.

    These update images will be administered without any clinical trials. Hopefully, this new Nuremberg trial will put an end to this crime against humanity.

    It is clear from statistical reporting data that this experiment leads to death and injury. But not all politicians, pharmaceutical companies and so-called experts make any attempt to stop this gene therapy experiment from harming a misinformed public.

    Legal proceedings are progressing, evidence has been gathered and a large growing group of experts is sounding the alarm.
