  1. To the below comments, you guys can wear your mask as you please. Keep your opinion to yourself and keep YOURSELF safe. Wear a hazmat suit if you want… Better yet just stay home and have all your groceries brought to you. Pay someone to go pay your bills and request to your place of employment to allow you to work from home.

    Problem solved… Allow the rest of us with sense to move on.

    Simple math and contact tracing defeats the so called severity of this FLU… Just based on simple multiplication the island would have seen this Covid ten times over IF contact tracing had to be applied.

    Accept and swallow this very bitter pill, the media took yourll all for a good ride. Cost people their jobs… Their livelihood… Friendships… Economies… This was blown way out of proportion… And they screwed alot of ppl over mentally… The physiological breakdown will be evident for many years to come..

    But still you wish to bicker on about this flu..

    Just keep quiet… And choke in your house.. Since youre so concerned by something you have to get tested to know you have it..

  2. A positivity rate of 15% is of concern to populations everywhere. Saint Lucia has been averaging a positivity rate in the mid 20s % for the longest while but nobody seems bothered by such a high concentration of Covid-19 in Fair Helen! Maybe y’all know something I don’t know — but to me this isn’t the time to drop the masks or relax any of the other safeguards that are proven measures to curtail the coronavirus!

    • You can’t be that daft now can you. Thank god 70% of St. Lucians aren’t as brainwashed as you are. There is no evidence to show that cloth masks do squat to stop covid. Same for surgical masks. The only one that has any chance of doing anything are those N95 only if they totally sealed on your face. Have you ever seen that. Are you saying standing 6 feet away from someone will save me from covid? What about 6 foot 2 inches. Stop testing and covid goes away. Stop reporting in the media and no one will bat an eye about covid. This isn’t the black death. You have fallen victim to one of the most successful psyops in history. You are under the spell of Mass Formation. Hope you can get out of it.
