    Once again, wrong messaging coming from a mouthpiece of the opposition. Instead of laying blame at the PM’s feet, why don’t we appeal and encourage Dominicans to take the vaccine, their best defense against this deadly disease? We need all hands (no politics) on deck to battle this virus. We are all vulnerable therefore we should do everything possible to stay safe. I was elated when Honorable Linton agreed to join hands with government in an effort to tackle this problem but it appears some of his diehard supporters didn’t get the memo and are hell bent on trying to score political points. If you’re not prepared to help, please get out of the way.
    A united message is what’s required at this time.

      Mark, who started the politicization of the pandemic? Let me remind you that Skerrit and his minions were on the airways everyday when the covid count was low beating their chests. Do you have selected amnesia?

      Your demigod, Roosevelt, has been the most divisive prime minister in the history of Dominica. He excludes the opposition from everything national. So point the finger exactly where it belongs for the disunity and fragmentation in the country.

      Mark, are you a hired gun (figurative language) for the illegal occupant of the highest office in government?

    Lie that. Number of new cases 133? Gason Paix Bouche alone has over 150 cases ask the Parlrep. Almost every house has a case or more and all you saying Dominica has 133 new cases
    Iie that

    The active covid-19 cases remain stubbornly high. The death rate on the rise. I remembered when the number of cases was negligible and there were no deaths, Mr. Skerrit hogged all the credit. His ministers and cronies touted his leadership skills as the best the Caribbean has ever seen.

    Today, things have changed for the worse. It’s only fair that we should attribute the worsening covid-19 crisis on the clueless, tyrannical despot (Roosevelt ‘Xi’ Skerrit). Why is he and his servile disciples so reticent?

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 11 Thumb down 10

      @Ibo France, your thoughts are so foolish, if only you knew how much, maybe you would stop expressing them.

      Are you not reading the news from other countries because of the “omicron” virus which started just before the end of the year?

      Ontario, Canada has 8 to 10 thousands daily infectants causing the Government to go back to it tights rules for Corvid-19–before it they had planned to open up completely.

      Are you saying that Ontarians should attribute that worsening covid-19 crisis on the back of our Premier Doug Ford–or even Justin Trudeau as the Prime Minister of Canada?

      And how about the other Nations which are faced with that same crisis? Man, you are so …., if only you knew how much, maybe that knowledge would cause you to shut-up, once in a while.

      Two wrongs don’t make a right. He was wrong to claim credit for lack of deaths. At the same time, you cannot attribute the rising case count and death to Skerrit. The fact is, Dominica got lucky in the first two waves. Our people were behaving as if covid was a foreign concept, but unless the virus was circulating in the country, there is little chance of infection.
      Come Delta and now Omicron, that were much more contagious, and the game changed. Also, if you look at the number of vaccinations, we have plateaued. The vaccines are the best defence against hospitalization and death, but we have people who refuse to be vaccinated in the face of a rising death toll. You can’t blame Skeritt for people’s intransigence.

        Zandoli, what I stated was misconstrued by you and your new, best friend, LizX. Probably it was stated in a clumsy and inarticulate manner.

        I was being facetious by ascribing blame solely to the egotistical, little fellow that occupies the PM’s office.

        The message I wanted to convey was this. Since Mr. Skerrit was given all the credit for the good management of the virus initially, then it was only fair that he should take the blame for the exponential spread of it. That’s all.

      Omicron is much milder than Delta although it spreads faster. The scientists have concluded that if you are fully vaccinated and you get a bout of omicron, it can even give you greater protection from the Delta. But it would seem from the sudden spike in Covid cases in DA, there seem to be the presence of Omicron. I suppose the main threat from Omicron is that, because it spreads so quickly it will put a strain on health services such as hospitalization and impacting on the medical staff and resources, which can result in greater death numbers. So far our death numbers are quite moderate compared to other countries. The most sensible thing to do is get vaccinated and keep following the protocol such as masks, hand washing and social distancing etc. Once covid has run it’s course we may be able to either learn to live with it or eradicate it altogether and life will be back to normal.
