  1. If there’s a new case, there’s got to be a recovered case so the case count doesn’t go over 9… ever.

    Imagine if they tested everyone the let in and in the community. There would be hundreds of recorded cases.

    • I was waiting for covidiots like you to lament. I presume you are a member of the community and not an alien from space. Are you prepared this minute to get tested?

      So you are saying from your nonsensical logic that there are hundreds of persons out there with covid. For a minute just think about your statement and answer..does it make sense? Where exactly are these people? Do you know at least one? Are you saying that these hundreds are asymptomatic? Logically if there was this 100s and you have put it dont you think that for a small society these persons would be knocking on the doors of the hospital? Where then are they? Are they at home suffering?

  2. Since the recovery rate is so high without any special regimen why a vaccine?

    If you will die eventually and this vaccine will not allow you to live for ever what’s the point in taking it.

    How many different types of vaccines can a human body tolerate safely?

    Where is the research on the effects of different combination of vaccines on the body?

  3. But there is no dashboard attached to this publication. Also I still don’t understand the continual lagging of pending tests missing most of the dashboard updates. Surely this information can be obtained on a timely basis to coincide with dashboard updates

  4. I second that opinion, new case are mostly followed by recoveries. Lies, lies and more lies.

    Why aren’t we reporting the cease from the private doctors? My guest is they didn’t do it in the past when we were all aware of those cases, why break the silence now?

    My fellow Antiguans don’t be fooled by the health authority and it’s administration. They care only about themselves.

    I live in the southern end of the island where most white residents, tourists and folks from the yachting sector all congregate at the restaurants in the area and there is ZERO social distancing and protocols are thrown out the door, so the prime minister isn’t too far fetched in his information of having cases in the twenties, because he knows the geographic of the situation and does nothing about it all at the cost of our lives trading for a US$.
