According to the Minister of Health, Wellness and the Environment there is no need to change any of the protocols governing Covid at this time.

The Minister of Health, Wellness and the Environment informed the Cabinet that there is no need to change any of the protocols governing Covid at this time. The determination is dependent on the number of hospitalizations of patients suffering Covid; at the moment the number of persons hospitalized with Covid is zero. The infected patients, numbering less than 200, are isolated; that number has begun to decline following the post-Labour Day swing upwards that was registered.

The Minister continues to warn nationals and residents about Non Communicable Diseases (NCDs) that plague the communities throughout Antigua and Barbuda. Too much salt, sugar and starches form part of the diet that imperils the good health of the Antiguan and Barbudan people, he remarked. Sedentary lifestyles contribute significantly to NCDs and, therefore, people of all ages are encouraged to walk, run and practice healthy lifestyles and to eat balanced meals.
