      Coved must be on the rise because when the country lockdown over the weekend when it touch Monday morning everyone is going to bundle up in the super market and no one will be social distancing.

    When the government lockdown the country how do they expect the citizens to survive financially? Most other country provide a stimulus to aid their citizen’s survival. How are their bills paid? How do they feed their family?

    • life over business, people before party!!

    • @glen glen So a you ago drop off food at the people dem doorway?

    • @Tony Clarke Most people do not work weekends you can buy food in the week it’s not that hard it’s only three days the rest of the week people have till 8pm to organise food provisions for the weekend.

      Most people work on weekends

    • Christian Royal | April 7, 2021 at 4:50 PM | Reply

      @glen glen You seems to be oblivious to the poor man’s plight. I use to see what goes on a weekend in Jamaica. Most people in particular higlers and hustlers of different trades makes most of their money on the weekend.

  11. politicians are not seeing a spike in crimes because it is not happening in their neighborhoods.

    • Crime help them and their lawyer friends dam liers dem

      How you people showing the lockdown and you not showing the kias in the supermarket and on the shops when you give such a short notice for people to shop that’s madness

  18. Pedro Johnson | April 7, 2021 at 8:21 AM | Reply

    No wonder Jamaica is like this because our security minister is living in his own dream, he needs to come to terms with reality,

    • Markus Tillman | April 8, 2021 at 5:48 PM | Reply

      No instead of killing of eachother..why don’t they unite and take some politicians off the bucket list?

    Wear did you record all those Covid cases from when everyone was at home for days

  20. The words coming from the National Security Minister makes me feel sick, he makes it sound like crime should be a way of life, I have never heard of nothing like this before. SMH
