    1. @THRUDY Smith The big question is it safe and how can you prove it without a trial period ( usually years)

  1. Yeh invite cruise liners and one million more tourists. Have they seen the hospital conditions in South?
    What is jamaica doing?

    1. Actually it is Jamaican causing this spread not outsiders. To be on a cruise ship you have to be Covid free. You are tested before embarkment. Jamaicans are not taking this serious and they need to get vaccinated.

    1. No, bad Jamaican entertainers who are encouraging the people not to wear mask nor to get the vaccine. The Government should prosecute them. They are the one that is making the system overburden with covid patients.

    2. @vermary Our hospitals are in such a bad condition, that even before Covid, our MPs refused to use them, they preferred to go overseas for treatment.

  2. With proper planning and knowing what is pending with covid the space should have already been prepared not in sav alone but the entire island

    1. wash your hands and practise the protocols, but as usual yuh want docta save yuh but yuh nuh want doctor tell yuh nutn, pure ignorance.

  3. Where are those people who were jumping up and down during election talking about Brogad this and Brogad this? Where are you to demand betterment for poor people?

    1. I’m not talking about overwhelming number patience, I’m talking about the deplorable condition nurses and doctors have to be working in. It’s not just during pandemic, I’m talking pre-pandemic. I don’t think you have been to the public hospital. Have you seen the furniture and appliances designated for employees?

    2. @Stone Kinda!! They need people to get the vaccine, Jamaicans needs to stop listening to entertainers and social media buffoons. I have yet to read any anti vaccine article from any Epidemiologists.

    3. @melvin barnett Not interested in neither Andrew nor Mark. The only person I would have voted for died before I was old enough to vote. Until this day he’s the only one that really made a difference in the lives of regular folks. Too bad many didn’t see his vision, until this day the country is suffering from the lack of foresight. I don’t know where poor people would be today without his vision, I also wonder where we would be if we were a more self-reliant country. I’m talking about no other but The Right Honorable Michael Manley.

  4. Jamaicans don’t use their home remedies anymore? Why are they not attacking the virus as the SYMPTOMS start? Jamaicans DON’T let your guards down until this virus is nil.

    1. @Nalecia Clarke what do you say to the patient who has done all that?

      Simply put, everyone is different. Too many times I hear patients saying they used Bush. Some have died, some gotten well. Also people fail to appreciate risk factors.

      This puts me back to my point, everyone is different. Most people sunk by COVID are not the “nice healthy” people.

    2. @Dr Anggelos We’ll have to go, but I rather go using natural remedies other than chemicalized medicine…Nature over medicine

    3. This is not the first time these things are happening even before covid. The work environment is under pressure and people cannot get jobs

    4. Look how many nurses, practical, rn etc leave school and no work. They say they over populated in staff an when you look 1 nurse to 70 people that is madness

  5. Thank u miss Norma Hamilton well said as u feel anything funny go check it out it’s your health. . because all people that got vaccine is not safe only God alone can save us all

  6. This is sad an so the patients suffer…Tufton do the right thing…Praying for all nurses, doctors, hospital worker, teachers, school workers.. lord cover them all keep them from all harm n danger

  7. Its not only in Jamaica. The nurses in the US are calling off every day. I have worked so many OT due to call offs on my unit and the condition is not as bad as Jamaica

  8. You can get as much space as you want but without the staff and protective gear the medical staff will still be putting their lives at risk. More gloves, mask, blood pressure machines, reduce work hours and proper bathroom facilities are mandatory before the staff return to work!!

  9. So everybody that dies from last years until now have covid19? So what was killing the people before covid19?

    1. A NURSE IN ENGLAND SAID THAT SHE FELT ILL AND THEY TOLD HER SHE HAD LONG COVID !!!***THE NURSE SAID THAT AFTER A WHILE SHE REALISED IT WAS ACTUALLY CANCER SHE WAS SUFFERING FROM, BUT THE HOSPITAL MISDIAGNOSED HER ILLNESS AND TOLD HER THAT SHE HAD LONG COVID

  10. That hospital is In deplorable conditions a long , long time ago, I always ask for help for the hospital but blind eyes are turned. Hoping it will be looked after as early as possible.
