One man fell ill this morning. (GP)

A man passed out while among the crowd of shoppers at Hill’s Supermarket on Roebuck Street, St Michael this morning. Worried bystanders shielded him from the morning sun with a box and umbrella as help was summoned.

People rushed to supermarkets to stock up on supplies ahead of the curfew which goes into effect at 8 p.m. today. The curfew was announced yesterday by Acting Prime Minister Santia Bradshaw as one of the measures to limit the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

It was originally to start at 6 p.m. but was extended to 8 p.m.

Dos and Donts


Welcome to our discussion forum here on nationnews.com. We encourage lively debate, but we also urge you to take note of the following:

  • Stay on topic – This helps keep the thread focused on the discussion at hand. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.
  • Be respectful – Meeting differences of opinion with civil discussion encourages multiple perspectives and a positive commenting environment.
  • Do not type in capitals – In addition to being considered “shouting” it is also difficult to read.
  • All comments will be moderated – Given the volume of comments each day, this may take some time. So please be patient.
  • We reserve the right to remove comments – Comments that we find to be abusive, spam, libellous, hateful, off-topic or harassing may be removed.
  • Reproduction of comments – Some of your comments may be reproduced on the website or in our daily newspapers. We will use the handle, not your email address.
