‘Miss Ram’ Caught Selling Inferior Covid Rapid Test


Miss Ram always find ways to be in the news mostly in an unfavourable light. Her latest flirt with the local newsfeed is that she has been exposed selling an unapproved, inferior off the shelf Covid 19 rapid test at her hardware store Builders Value Mart. A local press report quoted Miss Ram as saying:

Let me do my own research because I like to understand things. I will have to investigate because when I do certain things, I check first. I don’t know where the error has occurred, were they not known or what has come up. But if it is definitely banned and if they have done it, definitely it will go off the shelves right away.

Miss Ram
It is a Chinese manufactured product with the name COVID-19 (SARS-Cov-2) IgG/IgM Antibody Test Kits (Colloidal Gold).

It was drawn to the blogmaster’s attention the product highlighted below is the real macoy which is sold for about three times what Miss Ram is/was selling her inferior imitation.

The question on the lips of onlookers is – why would Miss Ram import Covid 19 rapid test kits during a pandemic without seeking approval or validation from the Ministry of Health? Whose side is she on besides greed?

    What exactly does she have to research? The government went to great lengths last year to publish the brands that were approved and the countries they were approved for, there is nothing for her to research either. Take the dam rubbish off the shelves as of today.

    What I will say through is Kudos to the local authorities for acting quickly on this issue. The article this week in Barbados Today also posted the brands that were approved, so if BT could find and publish this , how come Miss Ram could not find it? This truly is a despicable act where an opportunist saw the opening to make a quick buck by passing off an inferior product for a real one. I mean we are in a battle for life and death here do some have no shame?

    How is it possible that a Hindu could be in Barbados for 50 years and corrupt every social system there is and no government has seen her as a real and present threat to democracy.

    Has there been anything illegal or immoral which she has not done to mek a dollar?

    Are Bajans really aware that her religion gives her the mind to assume superiority?

    When will the law ever see this woman as a vector for all types of conspiracies against the country, corruption?

    Yesterday we were fighting with you about the prosecution of elites instead of the poor in order to set right examples. This is a prime example. Because you can’t on the one hand be demanding that the general population adhere to all manner of Covid mandates but a Ram goat has no higher order of care to support what are deemed as lifesaving measures.

    This is exactly what we’ve been contending. The criminal justice system needs by focused on her ilk, if we serious.

    We never understood why our country has to be some open ,”sapulcah” for whosoever will. Countries like Mexico don’t sell their people out like this.

Of course one look at the presentation and price would tell you them was a joke. I just Google a recognised brand to see what it sells for in the UK and the price was around $30 Barbados for a single test. So how the hell a real test could sell here for $6 bajan?? Lol

    How then can a business person claim they did not know?

    All these things we as a country will have to watch for going forward. Then we have those that will try to import product off the grey market and bring them into Barbados. This basically is product that is supposed to be in other countries but have been diverted here. Hopefully though the local authorised distributors will deal with those clowns as well.

    What concerns me though is that we already had the vaccine scam and now this, all at a time when we need people to take this virus seriously. I guess the profiteers are no respector of circumstance. It just takes some like those to give all business people a bad name.

    IT SAYS THAT AS THE ESCHATON APPROACHES THAT MEN HAVE LOST THEIR REASON

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—With catastrophic labor shortages and port congestion bringing America’s supply chain to its knees, many are wondering if Transportation Secretary and new mother Pete Buttigieg will ever go back to work and address the problem.

    “I would totally come back to work,” said Buttigieg as he held his new baby, “but I need to take my paternity leave followed by several more months of maternity leave. Plus, as the twins’ mother, I drew the short straw and got breastfeeding duty! These babies are keeping me up all hours of the night to breastfeed!”

    Buttigieg also cited his need for extended bed rest following a difficult labor. “It really did a number on me,” he said. “I’m still so tired and hormonal, and those varicose veins and stretch marks! So many stretch marks!”

    Sources later confirmed the varicose veins and stretch marks were unrelated to the new babies.

    The Buttigieg’s confirmed they are supplementing with infant formula since breastfeeding has proven difficult. “We thought there might have been a problem when the babies started losing a ton of weight. Thankfully, our house servant María told us about baby formula which really helps!”

  • I am at a loss as to how customs could be so lax as to give clearance for this product to be released for use by the public.

    Let me explain why. I placed an order with Amazon on September 14 for two items and they were delivered on September 20 to an express shipper in Miami for on-shipment to Barbados. They arrived in Barbados on September 28 and ONE ITEM was ready for collection on September 30.

    Not so the second item that arrived here on the same date. It is still in customs awaiting processing. What is this highly controversial article that could be a threat to the health and safety of Barbadians? What is this article that requires 20 days (so far) of close inspection and deep dive background checks by customs before release? A pair of hair clippers!!! Now we are told that this Christmas will possibly be impacted negative negatively by supply chain problems. If it is taking over 20 days for customs to clear a pair of hair clippers in Sept/Oct, pray tell what will happen as we get closer to Christmas. This is the same customs that was unable to detect AK47’s and numerous rounds of ammunition a fee months ago and the same customs that sees it fit to allow the clearance of knock-off test kits to be released to a hardware store for sale to the public.

    I think now the legally apponted distributors for these kits need to make a statement and let the consumers know what to look for. I saw in David’s opening he was able to publish with the Ram item a picture of what the real kit looks like. Also where is the FTC on this they are to protect us as well from persons like Ram

The doctor said he reported it to the legal distributor and they told him they will take it from here and thank you.

The distributors will all be asked to provide a copy of their letter of appointment as sole distributorship and then that info will be passed to the customs.

Could this be the reason for the decision not to return to the political fray next election? Being an officer and a gentleman and having been steeped in the discipline of the command chain, would a commander worth his salt stand idly by while his command is subjugated to the whims of a senior officer without so much as the courtesy of a note? In a larger theatre, an immediate resignation would have been a more natural reaction but we live on a small island and it would not be in one’s best interest to antagonize those with greater power than oneself.

    We have the institutions and the ministries, but these are more decorative than functional; more apt to malfunction than to do the right thing and are more for our deception than for our protection.

    It can be likened to Bizarro world or to a toy train with all the bells and whistles. It’s a parody of the Wild Wild West.

    Sometime ago I suggested to question the PS in MoH. In certain parts, that person would be hounded. They may even set up in front of the home. Until that person answers and/or passes the buck. It en hard?

    Religions come from the East
    The West wanted to invent their own and opted for Christianity

    When you go East to Asia there is a spiritual vibe that emanates from the culture that automatically filters into your dharma and no effort is required for spirituality as it is a natural phenomena

    When you go to Africa you see and feel Mother Nature and are in awe

    this won’t mean anything that will resonate with you if you have never been to either place for this experiential awakening
