Antigua signs MOU with Chinese hospital for cancer vaccine


Antigua and Barbuda, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with a hospital in China to offer a cancer prevention vaccine.

The Health Minister, Sir Molwyn Joseph, who was part of the delegation headed by Prime Minister Gaston Browne, shared this news on his return to the country. According to Sir Molwyn, Antigua and Barbuda could become the first Caribbean country to offer this vaccine, which could become a reality within two years. During his visit, he was impressed by the state-of-the-art science and technology, and the Chinese approach to dealing with various diseases taking the lives of Antiguans and Barbudans, such as diabetes.

One of the highlights of his visit was the opportunity to visit a hospital and witness a piece of equipment that gives them the capacity to screen for cancer.  The machinery not only diagnoses patients at the latter stage of the disease but is also able to forecast it.

Currently, the Chinese are working on a vaccine that can prevent cancer, and are developing new technology to give the body the ability to fight the disease. According to the scientists, this technology is about two years away from maturing, and Antigua and Barbuda will have the opportunity to be the first in line for the finished product, which can be shared with the rest of the Caribbean.

    Be careful Antigua and make sure your people aren’t used as guineapigs for this so-called cancer vaccine from China.

    That’s what I would do.
    The Americans and WHO/PAHO already injecting or kids at school with Hpv vaccine claiming, just in case they have s*x. Think people think. 🤔

      If you don’t know what you are talking about, it is best you stay quiet. Do you know how many women are diagnosed with cervical cancer every year?
      Have you not seen the benefits of vaccination for diseases such as measles, whooping cough, tetanus, and a whole lot more…..
      What is your objection to vaccination?
      Are you a medical doctor?
      Are you a medical scientist?
      Some of you people shoot your mouths and don’t have a clue about which you speak.

      So because one person you don’t like selling poison you going to buy it from somebody else? Even worse from China which is most likely the source of the covid-19 virus (formerly known as the Wuhan coronavirus), which MOST LIKELY came about due to a lab leak from chinese scientists working on making naturally occuring viruses more virulent. I’m not sure these are the people we should be trusting to make a “vaccine” for cancer of all things
