    Of course you parasites would say that and DNO would publish.

    Dominica is just lucky and blessed when Govt is doing well but if things were going bad guess whose fault it would be ?

    No wonder we have to bring Cubans in to help when the poisonous local uwp ppl sit there praying for it to go bad so they can blame you know who.

    I would like the Ministry of Health and commissioner to give us an update on the officers from the Eastern District Police Station that were quarantined/ self quarantined/ Station quarantined over the last week or so.

    I am stressing over it still because my family in the area are complaining that the same suspected officers are roaming the district visiting women, rum shops (that should be closed) and close friend with no regards for social distancing. Yes, sometimes they don’t ride in the polo van but use their private vehicles. Who is in charge of the two police stations in close proximity to each other on the East? Where are the Supervisors who should be reminding these officers that they should not be behaving like that? Mr. Dep Police Chief you are from the East so are you not concerned about your people being exposed to covid by reckless men and women under your command? Please send these people on time off and send a new set of officers to serve the affected eastern…

    Why Ministry of Health is a cloth store at Borough’s square Portsmouth still operational?

    Why Ministry of Health is an ice cream place on Independence street still open?

    I am listening to the Ministry of Health and it is extremely pleasing to hear we are not experiencing an exponential outbreak of Covid19 especially at community level in spite some of our early failures to act and the population carefree behaviors and practices. I am also hearing a voice recording from an English source stating Dominica’s current ref: Covid19 example no recorded deaths , no one on ventilators or in ICU etc . On both fronts we seem to be doing very well however I am of the strong opinion it is not because we are doing anything extra-ordinarily or differently than other countries. In fact given our laisser- faire attitude and obvious lack of decisive action and proactive planning at the beginning, ex failure to shut our boarders early, and not having properly quarantined and supervised the first imported case, we can count ourselves extremely blessed and lucky thus far. I hope our blessing continues. Suffice it to say the health team must be commended.
