My apologies for the long break from WA. Covid 19 is reaping havoc of biblical proportions all over the world. Until 2 weeks Anguilla had 2 positive cases both not of local origins.
We are now in total lockdown except for essential services-6 am to 4 pm.
Kudos to our healf authorities, Anguilla was No 1 in the world for Covid management. In less than 2 weeks we went from 0 cases to 62 due to a cluster supposedly originating from 1 visitor and 1 local. They are trying to bring the cluster under control, one can only hope residents follow the protocol.
Our economy is in shambles as we have Tourism is our only source of revenue; we have some fishing which also depends on Tourism and needs to be expanded, considering we have a 200 miles fishing zone.
Aloe vera is the easiest crop to grow in Anguilla, with little water needed, I am convinced we have not yet discovered all the health benefits of Aloe Vera,maybe there is a new source of revenue for the Island.The only draw back the plant can be grown almost anywhere;; I am positive there is Global secret waiting to be discovered.
Please Stay Safe.
