    On the 649th day of COVID
    my government gave to me:

    12 Useless masks
    11 Lords a’lying
    10 Docs a’grifting
    9 Nurses singing
    8 Fictitious models
    7 Fake tweets
    6 Flawed tests
    5 Quar-an-tines
    4 Shattered friendships
    3 Lost jobs
    2 Freedom passes
    And a vaccine that I don’t need

    I thought it was nice!

  2. I know of some tourists that tested positive after they got here, I am sure its the Omnicron variant, authorities said they had no where to put them so they were told to stay where they are, no way of checking if they left their accommodations or mixed with others, no monitoring. Bad mananagement by the authorities.SMH

  3. I know that the Omicron variant is already here. People get ready for the spike. Brace yourself for this war. I blame the ministry of health for allowing this, by not putting confinement hours earlier during the festive season. What’s sad is the poor children will not be able to return to school in January. I think it’s time for a wisdom in the ministry of health.

  4. I agree with Mary No one can trust these numbers. its impossible for the cases to be so low even as more people don’t even care to follow protocols

    • You can’t trust the numbers if they’re low yet you trust them if they’re high, yet they information is from the same source. The amount of stupid things I’ve heard in the past two years, I never thought was possible.

  5. Mary Issack said on a talk show she doesn’t trust the covid numbers coming out from the officials. The same officials dat was probably working under her during UWP. Add that to the list for vaccine hesitancy, you cya trust the system folks.
