    Why isn't this article not telling us if this new case is community spread? Why is Carvin playing with us?

    According to Billy Boy Gates, if the vaccines are successful, the world population will be reduced by 15 percent.

    I'm going to open a graveyard. Maybe a mortuary. I see big money to be made.

    Are all these cases seriously on the island of Virgin Gorda? When it is beneficial, the islands are known by their actual names.

    Please report the number of cases to the WHO. Please stop being hypocritical and do the right thing. All other countries are reporting as requested. The numbers indicated on the worldometer is not a true reflection of the number of cases in the BVI

      You think VG immune to the virus?

      Tourists visit VG and as you can read it says 6 of the 8 are tourists.

      Necker Island is Necker Island. VG is VG.
