    We need you back in power. We wouldn’t be in this mess economic and health wise.

  2. Mr. Dunkley your approach to the covid19 disease is no different than that of the present administration and quite frankly it’s amazing how none of you as leaders will speak to the viable options that are out there and being used in the fight against Covid19 and is proven to work, such as Ivermectin and The Regeneron Antibody Cocktail.

    People have a right to choose and we also need to follow the real Data and stop listening to the governments vaccine agenda, which is not been clinically proven, all covid19 vaccines has been given emergency measures approval but not one has been FDA approved, so stop making it look like the people who don’t want to get vaccinated have no right to feel such, and it’s already being proven in the U.S. that many fully vaccinated persons are also spreaders and transmitters of the disease, but we want to in Bermuda put the blame solely at the feet of unvaccinated folk and this is drastically wrong.

    • Question says:

      Obviously you didn’t watch it.
      The government needs to start making life very difficult for anti-vaxxers. They are preventing the rest of us from getting adequate healthcare, and from working.
      Burt needs to lead. Properly. Unfortunately he doesn’t seem capable.

    • conspiracytheory says:

      Ivermectin – I give it to my dog to prevent heartworm.
      Causes blindness and comas in people – for certain.
      I will go for the vaccine proven effective.
      More than 1.04 billion vaccine doses have been administered worldwide.
      Vaccines are, and will be, our best line of defense.
      There is some REAL data.

    • sandgrownan says:

      Ivermectin is a worm treatment you idiot. Perhaps, though, on reflection it might be useful here given how much crap Bermudians shove down their cake holes everyday.

      The Regeneron Antibody Cocktail is a treatment, not a vaccine or preventative treatment.

      • Question says:

        Ivermectin is completely safe for people.
        It is widely used for various conditions, and has been for years. There have been a couple of dozen successful trials in its use for treatment of Covid. It is an effective antiviral.

        • DownDeRoad says:

          There have actually been more than 12 Ivermectin studies, but only one, with 600 people, has done a phase 2 study. They are still gathering research. Merck issues a statement said it wasn;t proven effective against COVID You can read it here:

          What drug do you know will turn down the opportunity to make money?

          • Question says:

            The Merck phase 2 study had an cohort average age of 37 years, it involved only patients with mild symptoms, they started treatment 7 days after first symptoms. And, sure enough, under these circumstances, ivermectin made no difference to the number of deaths.
            Almost as if it had been designed to produce that result.

            You’re the that implied Merck would take any opportunity to make money.
            Would they go out of their way to get a cheap off-patent molecule approved for covid, or would they rather wait for a new, expensive, patented molecule? I think you answered your own question on that.

        • sandgrownan says:

          Used externally for head lice!

          The European Medicines Agency has said the available data does not support the drug’s use for Covid-19 “outside well-designed clinical trials”, and the World Health Organisation also concluded that ivermectin should only be used to treat the virus in a clinical trial setting.

          The drug’s manufacturer, pharma giant MSD, also warned that its analysis of ivermectin identified “no scientific basis for a potential therapeutic effect against Covid-19 from pre-clinical studies”, “no meaningful evidence for clinical activity or clinical efficacy in patients with Covid-19 disease” and “a concerning lack of safety data” in most studies.

          • Question says:

            3.7 billion doses over the past 30 years. Internally. It’s a safe medicine.

            Merck has no incentive whatsoever to encourage the use of an old, cheap, out of patent molecule.

            Remdesivir, on the other hand, at $3,000, got a lot of studies. And got approved. Even though it does absolutely nothing.

        • sandgrownan says:

          There’s also a good article on the FDA website about why it’s not a good idea to use it for COVID. It isn’t an anti viral.

          Good read up, there is no reviewed data to support treatment for COVID.

          You are lying.

          • Question says:

            The FDA page helpfully tells us it’s not a good idea to take medicines intended for animals. Not helpful on the real subject, which is whether Ivermectin has a helpful effect in treating covid.

          • Question says:

            Hey, I just saw you called me a liar. GFY. Stay ignorant. I don’t really care.

            • Sandgrownan says:

              Stop peddling untruths.

            • saud says:

              ” I don’t really care.”
              Yes, you do…that’s why you keep reiterating your ignorance for us.

          • sage says:

            Fun fact: FDA approves and regulates the manufacture, import, packaging, labeling, advertising, promotion, sale, and distribution of cancer sticks which killed 500,000 Americans last year.

  3. No Name says:

    Like Hell we do

  4. Just a regular Bermudian guy... says:

    Is it my imagination or has the Milkman suddenly acquired a much stronger Bermudian accent? He doesn’t talk at all the way in real life.

    • saud says:

      He’s just dumbing it down so more will understand.

  5. drummerboy says:

    So let me get this straight, Dr. Pierre Kory, Dr. Mobeen Syed, Dr. Paul Marik, Dr. Tess Lawrie, Dr. Hector Carvallo are a bunch of quacks peddling snake oil in the form of Ivermectin???? Is that the consensus here? And those who refuse the vaccine should be treated as less than or worse jailed for premeditated murder??? MMMMKAY….Funny how South Africa did an about face concerning Ivermectin: first outlawing it, then allowing it to be prescribed because it DOESN’T work???
