  1. That's an uncivilized decision and I wonder why it is been celebrated in a publication too. It sounds vindictive of the opposition and shows that public health matters not to the ruling party.
    It's a shame!!!
    I'll implore the MHAs to watch News as see what is happening in the entire world especially the global response to the pandemic COVID-19.

    Don't take me for a politician, I'm not one and my opinion is as objective as you ever imagine.
