BAUGHERS BAY, Tortola, VI – The [British] Virgin Islands (VI) is now at zero recorded active cases of COVID-19, Minister for Health and Social Development, Hon Carvin Malone (AL) announced this afternoon, February 18, 2021.

Hon Malone was speaking at this afternoon's Honestly Speaking’ show with Claude O. Skelton-Cline on ZBVI 780 AM.

“This is hot off the press. The Chief Medical Officer has  advised me that of the 153 positives that we've had, all 153 have now recovered. So currently there is zero active cases in the Virgin Islands,” he said.

According to the Health Minister, to date, the territory has tested over 22,000 persons for the virus and of those who were previously infected all have recovered with just one unfortunate death.

Gov't remains proactive

Hon Malone further thanked God for protecting the territory so far and said the government remains proactive with positive attitudes towards fighting the pandemic. 

He also thanked the people of the VI for their cooperation and adherence to the COVID-19 guidelines and policies to keep the territory safe.

    We keep ignoring God and listening to Satan..World health organiztion is evil...Yet we obey them without questions and disobey God as Useless. God gave us the sunlight to cure this illness and satan gave us the vaccine....We do not need the vaccine,, Its time leaders lead and be courageous..Let them who coming come with their negative test and vaccine card, so they wont give us,,, the evidence indicates we have none to give anyone...

        The difference is the BVI is small so they can’t lie on people down here having this covid thing so easily, in bigger places they can say it’s a million people because it’s too much people and you can’t fact check to see if the numbers make sense. And that’s why our numbers don’t get crazy

        Do you realize there is no virus. One question for you, what has become of the regular flu?

      You stated that Satan gave us the vaccine.
      Why then are you saying that those who come in need to come with their negative test and VACCINE CARD. The vaccine card for the same vaccine you stated that Satan gave us? So if their vaccine card says they are negative, is it a lie because Satan is the Prince of Lies who created the vaccine and should they be denied entry? Or is it true, and thus it's safe for them to come and Satan has nothing to do with the vaccine?

      Also does the sunlight give us this 'evidence' that you claim indicates 'we have none to give anyone'? It have a sunlight card to counteract the vaccine card that we can take with us to go abroad? Strups.

      Keep God out of your mouth when you pronounce illogical foolishness, please and thanks.

      What makes you think that God would be against such Public Health medical measures such as developing vaccines against illnesses that ravage populations? God also gave brains to use to develop treatments to fight diseases. I have nothing against sunlight and it’s wonderful properties, but would you blame satan for the uva/uvb light rays from the sun that cause skin cancers?

      Great Facts Not Surprise. I'm surprise I don't see any church leaders or real Christians standing up and promoting what God can do to help in times like these. Everything is about WHO, Bill Gates, Dr, Fauci etc. like they are God.Where are the believers to promote God.There is enough evidence out there to show how this whole pandemic was planned and there agenda to head towards a one world government. Believers of the one true God must stand up against the rulers of darkness. My people shall perish for the lack of knowledge. Take a real deep look and see what these new version of vaccines are going to do. As Bill Gates said in his book, learn to lie with Statistics.

      @why the vaccine ( God also give us knowledge. Yet we know drinking young coconut is good. Drinking bush tea is good. Get vitamin from the sun is goof etc. But God also give us wisdom and understanding. What if we don’t embrace the knowledge we have to make a vaccine using the ingredients from the world then what?

    Great. 2 questions....

    1) Why are the schools still closed?

    2) When are you investigating how the lady died of covid?

    Until then, stop pretending we have reasons to celebrate these zero cases.

    1/153=.00653 that means 99.93 recovery
    153/22,000 tested = .00695 means 99.993 don’t have it.

    WHO and CDC are frauds and unreliable when it comes to what they really know. WHO is commie backed CCP and CDC changes it’s mind every other day.

    Way to kill an economy and to forever taint and own control over you/us.
