Nurse In Hiding
An unusual impeccable source who has asked not to be identified has told our International News Bureau (INB) that the life of the nurse who administered the Ascazenica vaccine to popular broadcast journalist employed to Jamaica News Network (JNN) has to be placed under police protection as her life has been threatened. The nurse is said to be in hiding. We are unable to confirm this report.
Our news bureau has also been advised that the police are trying to identify the source of the threat with a view to making an arrest. The police probe we understand is getting top level attention. We further understand that top cyber security experts are combing through all social media platforms with a view to try and unearth the origin of the post. It is a violation of Jamaica’s cyber crime law for threatening and or obscene data to be transmitted over the internet. A serious crime indeed!
Today Sunday Reverend Khan Honeyghan in his sermon at the regular Sunday Mass at St. Jude’s Anglican Church, Stony Hill at about 8:45 AM, blasted those who threaten a Nurse’s life. He said inter alia:
“It is shameful that the life of the nurse who administered the AstraZeneca vaccine on Michael Sharpe has had her life threatened. She was just doing her job.”
The Ministry of Health & Wellness through their Chief Medical Officer Dr. B. McKenzie has stated that she got permission from Sharpe’s family to disclose that he had a heart condition prior to getting the vaccine to stem the coronavirus. Sharpe did not die from the vaccine. She further stated that an autopsy will be done to ascertain the true cause of his death.
We are disappointed at the sad turn of events. The Michael Sharpe I knew would frown on such conduct.
