  1. Meanwhile:

    State Surgeon General Dr. Joseph A. Ladapo Issues New mRNA COVID-19 Vaccine Guidance

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, State Surgeon General Dr. Joseph A. Ladapo has announced new guidance regarding mRNA vaccines. The Florida Department of Health (Department) conducted an analysis through a self-controlled case series, which is a technique originally developed to evaluate vaccine safety.

    This analysis found that there is an 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related death among males 18-39 years old within 28 days following mRNA vaccination. With a high level of global immunity to COVID-19, the benefit of vaccination is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiac-related death among men in this age group. Non-mRNA vaccines were not found to have these increased risks.

  2. It is alleged there are about 20 Doctors to 1 patient and 50 Nurses to 1 patient at Victoria Hospital. Therefore, based on those ratios zero deaths should be recorded. What is the problem?

  3. Is is ok to say that the clinical staff are falling asleep due to the very, very, very low or no workload at Victoria/Covid Hospital.

  4. We are still waiting for the Ministry of Health (which is ironically more concerned about sickness) to publish the number of Covid-19 vaccine-related deaths in St. Lucia. There are many relatively young people who died suddenly within days or weeks of taking the “safe and effective” vaccine. There are many people who have had strokes, blood clots and heart issues since being jabbed. The Covid lies can only continue for so long. Good will prevail over evil.

  5. i believe we need a new update to this mask thing. Why is it that the minister of health said that it is NO longer mandatory required for people to wear masks but the security at the N. I.C building wants to say you need a mask to enter ? they even have a sign still outside saying this. this is BS cause as of this new update no one really makes it a duty to carry a mask around, not even the banks dont force this on people so why is this at the N.I.C building
