      Why are you guys blaming the government. Each and every time the minister for health spoke he keep saying we are not out of the woods yet and it’s becomes the punch line for every one. It’s every one responsibility to protect them self so we all can get out the woods.. set a selfish persons we are and blaming the government for what we all can somewhat control. Never one day I here the man say we out the woods yet

        Maybe they didn't say it but their actions says it. How about putting a curfew in place don't you think ppl catch it at night clubs etc also when drunk and talking unmasked close up to others unmasked ppl. Didn't you think ppl with catch it when there is no mask in public. Large social gathering. So tell me how the government not responsible

          Because they lift the mask don't mean you have to participate in gatherings or night clubs!! Take responsibility for your self and your actions.

    Well, I guess I will have to start stocking up on goods now so I won't be in those crowds trying to shop last minute because we have to be outside on long lines distancing again. I saw this coming with all of the parties going on and knew the numbers would rise again. STUPID PEOPLE! Shopping tomorrow so I can stay home for a couple of months until the coast is clear, if ever.

    Humans are the dumbest people around that's why the government world wide is doing a Purge. Why would you believe your sick if the test comes back positive and you have no symptoms. Why are you scared of an invisible virus that you only see on the News as deadly. The biggest hoax ever and people are still believing in it. That's why you all will have no control of your life

        Human are not the only humans being so your only program to believe what they tell you but you don't do research. It has the Almighty creation and the Elites reptilians creation. Now they have the Vaccinated people which is gene altering which is cut DNA and inserted Luciferase okay. You do your homework because book knowledge is nothing you have to dig deep into the rabbit hole

    Who cares? Nobody is sick. So what if the cases spike to 300? Why are we still counting? Why are we publishing these numbers in the news? All it doing is making BVI Xget blacklisted by other countries so their citizens cannot travel here. So our economy suffers. Shut the hell up about cases and stop using sensational words like spike. Did we used to publish the number of flu cases all the time before 2020? Number of herpes cases? Number of asthma cases? No. So what is the purpose of counting and publishing the number of cases now?serves no darned purpose at all!

      Your wrong it's does serve a purpose it's called pandemic, without the numbers you have no pandemic. Lockdown is coming have your house in order because this time it will have no warning. If you are blind and don't see we're living in revelation with the mark of the beast is full effect. Wars,and famine is whats going on. Biden works build back better,of course everyone and everything is going to be reset. Get ready for transhumanism new agenda for agenda 2030

    People who never went to class became smarter than the specialist doctors, this happened around the world. So we'll never be over it, when we had a chance to kill it Alpha & Beta variant not enough people took the vaccine to kill it from the world. Made our bed now we've got to lay in it
