In January, eight government legislators tested positive for COVID-19, causing Parliament to suspend the debate on the EC$1.3 billion budget.

The budget was passed after Gonsalves replaced a senator who had tested positive and reappointed him after the debate and his recovery.

    After five vaccines jabs ar yo still getting covid? I don’t believe and so are many others. Or is it that jah is killing we wid disease? Lol.

  2. Duke De Arment says:

    The best immunity is natural immunity. Such people may not get Covid again. The experimental vaccines were rushed through and I have only heard of people that MAY have died of Covid, but I have personally known 4 people that died soon after vaccination, usually of heart complications. This includes many young athletes.
