  1. If you’re looking at this with logic, nothing they do make sense. If you start to look at it from the perspective of an authoritarian eye you have that aha moment and realise what is happening. Don’t think for a second this has anything to do with public health or good. There have been enough work to show these restrictions made no difference. And even the most fervent branch covidians are questioning their gods. Truth you are certainly speaking the truth. This will get far worse before it gets better. We better start learning how to be as self sufficient as possible. You are not in control of outside factors but certainly do what you can to cushion the ill effects of what is to come.

    • Come to think of it there was covid and supposedly got the vaccine then it was a new variant and a new variant Russia needed more time. Pjp need to get with the times and start creating employment because soon other country won’t have finance to give. Everybody will now spend their money on defence.

  2. Remove expensive PCR testing requirements for inbound travellers too. That would encourage more tourists and boost trade.

  3. Give the people a break covid was made to distract nato from seeing Russia plans so there will not help Ukrainians get ready. Everywhere in the world people living there life normal. Give my st Lucians a break. What you’ll should do invest in farmers so when get worse people will have food to eat and stop depending on elsewhere.

  4. Great that the numbers are significantly trending downwards. We can soon start having a bit more leeway in terms of relaxing restrictions somewhat.
