Dominican Republic ends its pandemic measures

Santo Domingo.- Since 8:00 p.m. yesterday, Wednesday, February 16, the more than 11 million people who reside in the Dominican Republic can carry out their activities without masks, without presenting vaccination cards and without restrictions in public spaces.

The measures established in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic have come to an end.

“I am announcing that as of today all the restrictive measures imposed by COVID-19 are suspended,” said President Luis Abinader just at that time in a short message of three minutes and 11 seconds, aired by the Government in social networks.

A “recovery of freedom” that, in the words of the Dominican president, “is a collective success and a goal achieved” that is guaranteed by “the individual responsibility of each and every one of us.”

This is the first decision of this president that I disagree with. Going from one extreme to the other. In my opinion the use of masks should still be mandatory in supermarkets, farmacies, public ofices and public transport. I myself feel unprotected now. But then again, the same thing I feel while driving a car and others disrespect traffic rules right in front of the Digesett, and absolutely nothing happens.

Masks are proven not to work, but actually cause more damage. If you feel you need to wear one, wear one.

Go to your favourite search engine and type in the search bar:
“covid masks don’t work”

Even Google is allowing articles to be shown that state that cloth masks are useless against Scamvid19.

People who are triple jabbed and masked are being infected; so that shows that masks are really superfluous. If you’re infected, yes it’s a good idea to wear one not to infect others.

Yes I can wear one, but now it will have to be N95. Two cloth masks (yours and mine) provided decent protection and they were much cheaper.

Onionfish: nobody is going to keep you from wearing your mask if you choose to do so; now it’s your choice it’s not mandated. That’s the only difference;where’s the problem?

You can always leave. In fact, let me be the one to gift you your one-way to Pyongyang.

Every country in the world should follow exactly what he just did. Was about time they put an end to this damn lies. Putting fear in people for a virus that they have been living with for ages. Smh. If you want proof PURCHASE a copy of the American medical association encyclopedia of diseases which was published. 1989. Majority of the new doctors and nurses fo not even this book exist. Smh.

As I read these comments, it is amazing how some people unknowingly or knowingly do appear to turn their brains off when it comes to the use of masks during a pandemic. Ignoring the FACTS does not make for a very good reality!
