    If the Ndp was in and Walwyn as our premier we wouldn’t of had total cases high to 107, cases wouldn’t of even passed two digits.

    How can one compare the handling of covid 19 when NDP never had this issue to deal with. Covid can make you loose your mind because it's a tricky thing to deal with. Say thank God you are not in the present Government shoes because these are perilous times and a serious issue to deal with. So be truthful to your self and and give credit where credit is due. It has nothing to do with what the previous government would have done.

    Too many testing positive on Day 4.

    Easily could not show a positive result after quarantine is over and be in public spreading the virus.

    Too many images out there of group events, hugging, posing face to face, partying and not a mask in sight.

    I wonder who approved all these events? In order for clubs,bars, etc to have these type of events in communities they must have approval. RED FLAG. INVESTIGATE You may be surprised of your finding. When you give an inch some take a yard. There are no stiff penalties and laws are swept under the rug so take what you ask for. In order to have proper surveillance you have to have enough personal and they must have authority to curb a lot of these issues. It makes no sense to just talk and can't back it up with action. Bvi just a lawless place the law is just slapped at who they want and when they want. Experience is the greatest teacher. Talk for 9 days and go right back to our own same old same old.

    You've said it best, "Wonder", as I'm still wondering how such holiday functions were approved.

    Over here in the US Virgin Islands, not one activity was approved after the25 th of December. As a matter of fact, bars and night clubs remains closed until the eight of January!

    Frankly, I'm not surprised. Again, misguided efforts by our people can prove deadly!

    I am so sick of hearing them saying new covid cases. Well let me say this why don't they ever talk about the false positive cases that have literally ruined people's vacation, yet they don't have the audacity to apologize to the guest. I don't mind they get tested but also talk about the false positive that they also count in the active cases.

    The FDA today joined The WHO and Dr. Fauci in admitting there is a notable risk of false results from the standard PCR-Test used to define whether an individual is a COVID "Case" or not.

    How long will the evil people keep fooling and tricking others into believing that this covid 19 is so deadly it's all an Agenda for them to implement their new world order, taking away the people's freedom right before them with these fake tactics. They are liars, and if you solely trust in God you should not fear men and their invention, for God, has given us these plants as medicine to cure us
