Barbados Goes on Partial LOCKDOWN

Prime Minister Mia Mottley  advised the country tonight that Barbados will impose a curfew from 8PM to 6AM starting on Saturday 28 March 2020  until 14 April 2020. On a personal note the Prime Minister also shared she will be MIA for a while because her medical team advised her to undergo a medical procedure this coming weekend. Minister of Education Santia Bradshaw will act as prime minister. The blogmaster wishes her well.

  • Here is the PRIMARY infection.

    Once infected, these independent imbeciles return to their Mummy and Daddy’s home where the SECONDARY infection occurs.

    They will also infect their grandparents because they depend on them and are not as independent as they would have you believe.

    It is actually quite horrible.

    I doubt very much that 87 will get to 6,937!!!

    Agree the number of infections will climb after Spring Break but that does not mean the deaths will rise.

    Looks like the UK is going through a second wave of deaths.

    https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/uk/

    Were there more celebrations in the UK after the Chinese New Year?

    Was there an equivalent to a Mardi Gras/Carnival?

    It is just 3 days.

    Here is what I think was the first wave of infections in London and Milan, the days leading up to February 10.

    First deaths March 14th, 10 that day.

    What would have happened in the days after February 10?

    Could be mass transit, London Underground.

    Looks like services were curtailed on 19th March.

    On that day there were 40 deaths.

    So the virus had more than a month to spread via the underground if it did.

    Maybe it isn’t a second wave, maybe it is a continuation of the first wave.

  • Milan also has a mass transit system.

    By Feb 26 it had emptied out, Northern Italy then went into lock down on 12th March.

    Probably same thing happened in London, people stopped using the Underground before the authorities closed it.

    Looks like week of March 8th to 15th, a couple of weeks after Milan in this graph below.

    https://qz.com/1824243/coronavirus-has-killed-off-public-transportation-across-the-world/

    How many passengers in the various mass transit systems around the world?

    https://www.citylab.com/transportation/2018/09/the-global-mass-transit-revolution/570883/

    Unfortunately it doesn’t separate England from Europe.

    “Worldwide, mass transit carried 53 billion passengers in 2017—an increase of roughly 9 billion passengers since 2012, with most of that growth occurring in Asia, and the Middle East-North Africa region. Asian transit systems carry more than 26 billion passengers a year; European lines carry more than 10 billion passengers; Latin America nearly 6 billion and North America (U.S. and Canada) just 3.7 billion. Metro networks are most utilized in Eurasia, with the average inhabitant taking 117 trips last year, although simultaneously, Eurasia is the only region to see a decline in trips per capita.”

  • London, Milan and Madrid are not in the top 10 but they do have mass transit systems.

    What can we get from the table of the top 10?

    China where the virus originated has 3 cities in the top 10.

    New York where I suggest the virus was first spread in the New Year celebrations is #6.

    Hong Kong canceled its New Year celebrations or had them cancelled by China which also cancelled its own.

    Possibly the spread in China was due to Mass Transit and not the New Year celebrations.

    Possible absence of spread in Hong Kong was due to lack of numbers to spread via Mass Transit.

    Possible New York had both the initial numbers through its celebrations and the Mass Transit.

    New Delhi, Russia and Tokyo are like Hong Kong, no large numbers to spread.

    BUSINESS MONDAY: GOVERNMENT SUPPORTS HEDGING OF ENERGY PRODUCTS

    Mon, 03/23/2020 – 5:30am
    GOVERNMENT wants the Barbados National Oil Company Limited (BNOCL) and the Barbados Light and Power Company Limited (BL&P) to lock in the currently low oil prices for a period of two years.
    Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley said so on Friday night. But that’s not all.
    She also said that the Minister of Commerce, Dwight Sutherland, will have to issue general policy directions to the Fair Trading Commission (FTC) to indicate Government’s support for the policy of hedging of energy products.
    Her comments have come almost four years after the FTC had turned down an application by the Light and Power Company to go ahead with the hedging of electricity charges.
    Ms. Mottley said in Parliament that the Government wants to ensure that this is done before the country loses the benefits of low energy prices.
    The last time this subject of hedging came up was in 2016 when the FTC took a decision not to allow the BL&P to apply the results and costs of fuel hedging to the calculation of the Fuel Clause Adjustment.
    According to the FTC at the time, the risks asso-ciated with fuel hedging are grounded in the ability of the hedger to guarantee the achievement of the objectives that were established at the outset of the programme and the incidence of substantial financial loss.

    The news of curfew was just aired by V.O.B

    You might have wonder about my not talking of buying food stuff. You need not worry. I buy all my stuff on special just before best by dates at knock down prices. I have enough canned stuff for more than six months Two-three weeks ago ,there was a sale of grade B chicken at $6.00/kilo stocked up. The portions are individually packed in two-piece portions in in small zip-lock freezers bags. Then placed into larger zip-lock freezer bags. Stocked up on the green sweet peppers ,have blanched and then frozen them. Got carrots at $1.15/lb from Scotty’s and have been making carrot juice. I am also using iced tea ( York Tea at knocked price $1.99/40 bags).Have lot) and am using the natural sweetener Stevia. In other words am using my scientific knowledge to my advantage. You must know about Yorkshire teas)Have the sweet potatoes and rice etc.. Have germinated some Bodie beans (Bora) but have a problem with the monkeys. Have to germinate some runcifers ( you will know then by the name increase peas). Last week bought 3liters of sunflower oil for $9.75( cheapest on the market from Jordan) Also bought another gallon of bleach. From the time I wrote that article (4th. February, Barbados Underground) I did what I had to do . stocked up on anti-histamine pills. Already had 70% iso-propyl alcohol. Also stocked up on three 18.5 lb bags of cat food for my cats ( in addition to the one that was currently in use).Also antibiotic cream. Discovered nearly 5-lbs of raisins, in a container will use some to tone down the J.Wray &Nephew. The cub motto : be prepared.

    ” Most of the Dullard’s is ahead.”

    Don’t you think you should use the proviso if ” you survive this current problem?” At some point in time you will have to forego hunkering down inside and go outside. A mighty sneeze could put paid to all of your expectation. All things being equal I should be shuffling off before you. I think you should contemplate a fruit tree full of fruit of all ages. An examination of the fallen fruit under the canopy reveals a lot of young green fruit: fruit that one would expect to be at the height of a long and gainful existence. You ought to ponder on life.

    Great shopping. Stock up, there will be a food shortage coming. It is when we should fall back on the skills of our grand parents – cou-cou, stew food, soup, bakes, muffins, flour drops in hot chocolate, rice and salt fish, sweet potatoes, yams, etc

  • @ Blogmaster;

    Can we stick to the subject, important as it is? Why waste time? As you know from a couple of unpublished texts, personalizing the debate advances us not a bit. Thus, I had long dismissed “Baje”, a brutishly, brutally ignorant, ignoramus. Why therefore continue to waste time? As I said, “too much to do, too little time”.

    You, for your part, remain no more than a pompous, pretentious bone- head and an empty, disgruntled anonymous twit. Gottogo, clown. “Too much to do, too little time”.

I was in a line for 2 hours yesterday at a major supermarket and i saw the proper distancing in operation.The amout of people told me that people need regular and rrliable supplies which cannot be guaranteed by village shops who depend on deliveries from such places.Therefore i think the closure of supermarkets should be reversed.

  • ‘We are on the verge of a massive collapse’: Ex-Energy Secretary Perry says COVID-19 will ravage oil industry

    Former Energy Secretary Rick Perry believes that the oil industry could collapse because of the dramatic decrease in demand worldwide caused by the coronavirus outbreak and a steep decline in prices.

    “Our capacity is full. The Saudis are flooding this market with cheap oil,” Perry told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday night. “I’m telling you, we are on the verge of a massive collapse of an industry that we worked awfully hard, over the course of the last three or four years, to build up to the number one oil and gas producing country in the world, giving Americans some affordable energy resources.”

    Many U.S. states and countries around the world have ordered their citizens to stay home in order to contain the spread of the virus. And airlines have dramatically cut back on flights as the number of passengers has fallen off. Fewer cars on the road and planes in the sky means far less demand for oil.

    Coupled with a dispute between Saudi Arabia and Russia that has resulted in an oil surplus, the price for crude as well as gasoline has plunged. The national average for gas in the U.S. is now below $2 a gallon.

    No one know how many cases have recovered just as no one knows how many cases exist!
