  1. They can’t keep the place lockdown forever. People were and are still given the opportunity to get the vaccine. Some people refused because they believe that their natural immunity can withstand an attack. Others think the pandemic is a hoax. Still, others think that the carbonated drink, Sprite is a COVID-killer. By the way, one can still get COVID after being vaccination…just like other vaccinations. However, the attack will be milder. I say, too each his own. I ran out of sympathy a long time ago and never restocked.

    • I will stay in my small home with no netflix with my grandmother, grandfather, mother, father, 2 brothers, 4 sisters. No Covid for my family. We will play jack stone and listen to bedtime stories.

    • I in dat. Only 7 people in hospital with covid. Dengue far worse than that. Didn’t shut down the world for it. There are flu seasons worse than that. Stop leaving in fear.
