    My fellow Dominicans please look into your RIGHTS. Article 61 of the MAGNA CARTA.

       Here we are dealing with COVID-19 (a virus) which is pandemic; a plague which kills at random; as of today statistics reveals that one (117,464) hundred seventeen thousand, four hundred sixty-four people in America has died due to COVID-19; in England almost fifty thousand people died.

      So, my question is this?

      What does the British Magna Carta have to do with a killer virus; the British Magna Carta revolves around law.

      The practice of Common law within the Commonwealth of nations are based on the British Magna Carter.

      “The Magna Carta is an English “great charter” that was signed into law by King John on June 15, 1215.

      Some of the best-known concepts outlined in the Magna Carta include making the monarch subject to the rule of law, basic rights held by citizens (or “free men”), and the social contract between ruler and subjects.”

      I don’t like the crap the puppet McIntyre is talking, nevertheless, I don’t see where he’s violating any common law.

      What’s your…

    Dr. McIntyre is the only good thing in the cabal of Roosevelt Skerrit but unfortunately, when you are part of a cabal you become one with them, just as a good man or woman getting married to a bad and terrible person. But Dr. McIntyre could still redeem himself by either resigning from that cabal or help get rid of the chief corrupted, who has corrupted and destroyed the pillars of this nation.

      Good  thing in what Roosevelt Cabal; the man is as bad as Roosevelt himself, a damn liar!

      This man said smokers are more vulnerable to coronevirus (COVID-19, which is a damn lie; he has pulled that nonsense out of thin air, making belief because they say he is minister of health he knows.

      When someone claims to be in the medical profession, before they make erroneous and unfounded statements; they should be in a position to verify their comments by presenting some scientific research which they personally conducted, or reference some medical research institution which did the research and found that smokers are more vulnerable to COVID-19

      Look at that man’s face, his appearance is the epitome of a chain smoker: Unless I am wrong, and be a bad judge based on his appearance, he should advised himself to quit smoking; be it ganja, marijuana, crack cocaine or cigarettes, whatever he indulges into.
      Either that or he is a chronic type II diabetic.

      The man is a hypocritical…

    Given the current situation on the ground in Dominica what purpose does the curfew serve? Doesn’t the government believe the figures? If there are only two known cases on the island who are quarantined, are people more vulnerable between the hours of 10 pm and 5 am?

    At what point are they going to be satisfied this virus poses little risk given the present circumstances? Are they looking for people to live their lives free of any risk?

    I must give them credit for a job well done, but it is time to let people live their lives and get back to normal. If the situation calls for changes, they should adapt as required.

      @Zandoli, If you don’t know by now what purpose does the curfew serve guy you will never know again, and if the government just to people and things started to go wrong people like you and others would jump on his back calling him all sorts of insulting names.
