    It look like the whole island is going to supposedly get it ☹️

    • Yes eye. And many older may not survive. I feel like sitting duck and I cannot control the unruly non complying country. Excuse please, wear mask etc. I really want to live and so do
      Many others. Save me, save your neighbor, save your mom. For Gods own sake follow the guideline of this government. You dont want this illness. Follow the science and educate yourselves. Listen to the PM and do what he asks.

  3. This is why the election was called so soon. They want to protect the party so that even if they are blamed they are their party is in.

    • Hi rayon
      Yes you may be right. Anyone paying attention to
      World wide situations, has a right to be scared. Noone around us wears mask

    Am from grenada why the government open up the airport so early why it will be a big problem for the ppl of Jamaica after election is do or die ppl try and b safe πŸ‡¬πŸ‡©

  6. We’re making up for the time we lost, and numbers that weren’t reported, in the last 5 months – in deaths, critically ill and positive COVID cases. Waiting to see how the political nitwits, from both parties, will spin this since they contributed to the chaos that I’m sure is fuelling this new surge. Also, as it relates to the ‘entertainment industry’ that promised to be responsible in their gatherings – the two parties that yielded at least one positive case (that we know of) – we are not ready to reopen that industry. Jamaicans are not capable of following simple guidelines and procedures when sober, you can imagine what’ll happen when they are under the influence of music or some other intoxicant.

  7. So sad Jamaican get out of hand with distant them sell y.y.y

      @Mimi Uk same thing me would like to know they just dumb

  11. Hypocrisy wearing mask on tv but out carelessly campaigning for election. What is wrong with uuno. You talking bout Usain what about what happen on nomination day. Shameful.

  12. Yo beta call of the election because it only going to get worst

  13. I’ve caught covid 12 times now

  14. Well done Mr Holiness, imagine the election meant more to you than the very people who are voting for you. And you was also happy to mix our children in this crisis. Keep the borders open keep the virus coming in, kill us all you will still have the money you are successfully selling us for.

    What I found out just yesterday about the Call Centers in Freeport Montego Bay, whenever the workers wear mask to work they have to take off their mask when they started working because they have to talk on the phone.
    Tell me something, isn’t that a very big risk for the workers and their family? What is the Prime Minister and the Minister of health doing about this? That is so dangerous.
    I get this from good source

    83 new cases and them want to call election so after election how much more cases the country is going to report? Bunch a scammer on both sides. I CALLED FOR ALL JAMAICANS TO BOYCOTT THIS ELECTION. Remember your heath and your family health

    Sure when the election is over see the rise in covid death and confirm case

  19. Before the emancipation hoilday and the election campaign every jamaican knew their is a virus circulating worldwide. It’s all of us responsibility to protect ourself from this virus by simple wearing a mask, practice social distance and always wash our hands. How can we blame the government for us failing to wear a mask.? This is gross carelessness on every citizen. We need to be responsible for our actions. Usain Bolt, Beenie man Krystal and others must be charged. So its as if they are above the law.
