    Please follow the loving truth that helps others survive and be better you know, your conscience. G really loves you, pls be safe and get both doses of the vaccine, after 2 weeks of the 2nd dose you are vaccinated fully. Eat + exercise healthy to avoid clots please use a mask even with the vaccine to be ok. Others and I also love you! Luke,14 Forsake all you have everyone and yourself for J

    Luke,16 Work for J, not pay$, then J will give you and your family the food and clothing if they follow too

    Last time DNO posted the one saying no cases I pointed out that it was a lie cause 3 days before a guy from Guadeloupe tested positive and was in quarantine dno did not post my comment. I bet they say they never got the comment in the first place. It’s there usual story. So if when the gov said 0 cases there was actually 1 at the hospital. How we so sure that the so called 2 cases they claiming now is actually true?

    ADMIN: We acknowledge the comment but we were unable to substantiate it at the time. We receive many such reports of that nature (often proven erroneous), we tend to err on the side of caution.

      Dominica’s bad new is posted on Facebook, Dominica’s ‘good news’ (propaganda and mainly lies) are being broadcasted on his propaganda radio station.

    Vaccination is of no use. Before that we had 0 cases, but they want to make vaccine mandatory. COVID-19 is not our problem here in DOminica. It is the ruling administration.

      @If we knew better, I suggest you remove that “we” and replace it with “I” to make that foolishness you wrote above more complete because it is all about yourself–there is no “we” who wants to be part of it. None at all!

    Are they imported cases because if it is then the person was not vaccinated then or if yes vaccination if of no use

      Vaccination doesn’t mean you’re immune to infection, it means that your risk is lower. Protect yourself and those around you, don’t stop wearing your mask and social distancing. COVID has no end in sight yet. Don’t be a pessimist.
