  1. Cases are rising becaise we got too many white people walking around with no face masks or even mesh face masks around and these bitches jist got vaccinated so who is bringing in the virus then?

  2. @Eli you sound ignorant. Personal responsibility you idiot. Next thing you blame the government when you become ill. Hush

  3. Brace yourselves whilst you protect yourselves. Cases may rise exponentially if you don’t cover our faces whether vaccinated or not. Alcohol consumption and mass gatherings will occur over the festive season . The mask is the key to limiting the spread and protecting oneself.

  4. We need to look into the “vaccine” thing because I know a vaccinated person who got Covid and had zero symptoms while everyone else was suffering.
    This should not be allowed, why are they making people suffer while they don’t? Someone needs to contact people in order to investigate this nonsense

  5. There should be a programme during the christmas season to hand out free face masks.small bottles of hand sanitizer etc.which one is more expensive trying maintain an overcrowded hospital with no beds or to do simple things that can help stop the spread.?

  6. Do what you want on Christmas and New Year’s Day, Saturday 25th and1st Jan 2022, from 4am until 10pm. That’s according to the protocol. With the increase in deaths I new something was coming.

  7. This is really SERIOUS.
    Case numbers are on the rise, positivity rate is going up, active cases going up, hospitalized patients on the rise and Christmas isn’t here yet!!!!
    TIGHTER PROTOCOLS PLEASE, FOR OUR OWN SAFETY
