    What are you doing in there? So....nobody going to try investigating other treatments? It's obvious what you are doing is not working. Allow the families the right to try.

    When did these people died? When was the autopsy done? Can't trust these actors at all. All politicians,tv doctors, sellout puppets,etc are really enjoying the Earthly values now but what about burning in the lake of fire while the pureblooded live happy in eternity

    Six covid-19 virus related deaths since the New Year begins is not a mythical story. If any or many think that it is, then contact the love one that grieving the list of their love ones. They may care to tell you.
    My in-depth condolences to all those that lost their love ones to the life snatching covid-19 virus transmitted decease. I pray the God would comfort your minds with His graceful love.

    To all that believe that the Covid-19 virus pandemic is a myth. Hear me. It is not. It time to search our hearts (minds) carefully, and seriously draw near to God. He is eager to draw near to us, because he cares compassionately.

      How do you contact the relatives when the identity of.our deceased are secrets No obituary listing in the vi.
      It might have to do with property rights and claims and illegal complicity.

      And you know what? You have a very valid point. This custom have been going on in the BVI for a very long time. Someone is sick and the family would prefer to keep the person at home and treat them with all kind of bush medicine rather than get them to medical help. I will give you two examples. And I have witnessed it in the village I grew up in. Someone get stuck in their foot by a rusted nail, rather than going to get a tetanus shot, they would put garlic and rock salt on the wound. I have seen many people whose children were born with developmental disabilities and they would isolate the children in a room, the children is never seen or get a chance to see the outside world or get a chance to breathe fresh air. That is just plain cruel. What is the shame in having a developmental disable child. They are living breathing humans also. And I am telling the truth.

      Truth, that is a very common practice right here in the BVI, they would prefer to treat illnesses ate home rather than going to the hospital for treatment. They believe in bush treatment at home which often times does not work. The dog is sick, they would give the dog Canadian Oil instead of taking the dog to the vet. Someone would get bitten by a dog, they would pull a few hairs from the dog and pack the wound instead of seeking medical attention in the event the dog has rabies. Maybe that is why so many people here is messed up in the head.

    I don't understand what's all the dislikes are for when I said the truth. The Bible clearly says who's takes the mark will burn in eternity. Those are not my words. No autopsy was done so yoh have no reason to dislike the truth

    People when you speak or blog about and invisible intervention through prayers you are only giving the politicians more power. Try coming together with solutions and you will see a instant change.
