  1. I do hope carnival is over for this year and for a while, the health care workers need a well deserved brake. Without Carnival, health care workers in the big Countries are overwhelmed. What is there in carnival that some people can’t do without? if its still a good time to have it, but can’t we abide by the rules? it has been said, that some in high places are profiting from that show, irrespective that show is childish and unhealthy. Its better to find something more wholesome and fulfilling to satisfy the mind. May God bless them all, and the Nurses too.

    • Exactly! The numbers are so much higher. Some people (like me) tested positive through rapid testing and so we’re not part of the figures.
