  1. Cruise ships are coming in planes are coming in as well what do you all expect 0 cases and more travellers are coming than the population, and also the members of the cabinet are great liars also

  2. Vaccinated party is the cause they looking a scapegoat and will try to say is the bar and those reckless individuals Who are in bars and not following protocols

  3. 18 months in the plandemic, don’t listen to the cabinet, use your 5 senses it doesn’t line up with what we are told. All the world leaders are still alive to implement their agenda, the only ones that died is the one that reject their plot and plan is that coincidence ?even when no vaccine has been administered at the time.

  4. Well said 2020 vision… Gaston tell us when you start P.R.A.Y.I.N.G and reading the B.I.B.L.E then we can believe you. Check on yourself good.

  5. Bring back the section where it specified the number of imported and local cases.
