  1. At what point will it be enough and to start enacting real policies which will curb the virus spread? Vaccinated or unvaccinated, the virus is still a threat on this island and the government doesn’t seem too concerned?

  2. look they don’t even test you. My family and I were feeling sick last Saturday night we call the hotline the woman answer then said to me go get tested on Monday. I just laugh cause that can’t be real. Am telling you there is more than made to believe if that’s the way it’s done, x 10.

  3. This statement sucks,the some 2 letters,copy and paste and that’s it’s!!!! Thise guy at the hospital deserve a trophy for be THE MEGA SUPER LAZY OF THE YEAR.
