      It need a curfew from 8 or 9 pm 6pm is too early. The government only recently relax the curfew to 11pm and you should see how the bars are overflowing again. The patrons are not adhering to the rules. I even heard the police had to pass and remind them that the curfew time is in effect

    It's amazing how they are quick to point out all of the hospitalized are vaccinated but refuse to post stats on how many of the persons who died were unvaccinated or vaccinated leaving one to assume that all the persons who died were unvaccinated. Why not post that stat then?

      They did say 2 persons who passed away have had just the first shot and only like a week before. It seems those 2 persons already had the virus in them before they took the shot. Also if what you are trying to say that it had some vaccinated death then the relatives of those petsons can speak ot.

        When did they say that? I know the first person who died was a fully vax elderly woman who the Minister said died from covid only for Dr. Georges to say that it is still to be determined.

    Its amazing what happens to the numbers when you stop testing everyone. Surely it is time for USVI to ease their 48hr testing requirement for us if we are in much better shape now.

    We need a full, not a partial summary of the current covid-19 physical empact against us in the B.V.I., including the presently known accurate count, shy of exaggeration, please.

    Let's be realistic you think any one of us or the government really knows how many cases are in the territory. They can only give statistics on what they actually have. Let us all do our part to curb the spread of covid.

    we now know the test is fake and does not work. . . come on man, this is just the flu with a huge fear reaction when pneumonia sets in. . . there is no covid19, it is the flu, nothing more, relax people. Reject the lie, to turn you into a lab rat, full of graphene oxide, that will make you a magnetic nano particle receiver. Propaganda is all they are putting on us. This is all a psyop. Pay attention.

    Whatever numbers you get the actual cases is higher because that is only statistics of those who are tested. There many more out there with mild form of the virus or are asymptomatic that have not gone in for testing. So if you want to keep safe just keep telling your self there is about twice that amount still in the BVI and stop the propaganda S---t. This is a real disease.

        Majority of other countries are shutting down why the heck we are opening up?

    Suddenly 9 new cases when the country supposedly is to open fully next week and also all those cases we had dropped without no new cases and many taking the vaccine but strangely now not 3 weeks ago we got 9 new cases. I think some people are going to to far with belittling people intelligence and there's a backlash that comes from that.
