    I have always been proud to be a Trinidadian, but lately I have bin disappointed with the governments decision on carnival and the ebola virus , what is wrong with you people why is it so hard to cancel carnival what (Money) $$$$? I thought the welfare of the people came first. Are you really willing to deliberately infect people for two days of fun and $$$$. Carnival is the best time for ebola you can’t get more personal than that people bumping and whining on each other ,Ebola will spread like wildfire. Please please please i’m begging please cancel carnival if you have the people’s interest at heart.

    Oh God people this thing serious ban it for 2015 nah.Carnival is really a nationwide street party.Ebola is a worldwide epidemic.

    The PP Government should put in place measures to Screen people entering the Airports in both Trinidad and Tobago, instead of cancelling Carnival. Taxpayers dollars should be spent to protect the citizens of the twin island republic.

      The Ebola virus takes 21 days to show up in test so if someone comes into the country and it hasn’t taken effect yet it will be a sad story its better to be safe than sorry!!!
