Local Microbiologist Calls for Curfew to be Extended to 28 Days

The following comment was posted by local microbiologist Dr. Robert Lucas to another blog – Bajans Jettison Social Distancing for Cheek by Jowl. The blogmaster regards it as one of the most important points shared on Barbados Underground since the status of COVID 19 was elevated by Prime Minister Mia Mottley.

David, Barbados Underground

Let me repeat what I have stated elsewhere on the Blog.

The curfew has to rigorously enforced. Once this is done, there is no need for contact tracing. I will explain.

Those who manifest symptoms are easily managed. It is person Z who comes into contact with a person (asymptomatic or beginning to show signs) and is unaware of the fact, who poses the immediate threat. By having the curfew and rigidly enforcing it, means that person Z is localized to a fixed area.

There will be more than one person who qualifies for the nomenclature Z. Since the curfew is rigidly enforced when the Zs become ill and use the hotline, hot spots are known. There will be a number of these hot spots. There should be isolated and all persons in the vicinity of the Z’ screened and placed into mandatory quarantine. No crap about voluntary quarantine.

For this method to work, it means that very tough enforcement it needed. None of this crap about human rights and individual liberty. Human rights and so on can be dealt with after the situation is under control…


Elsewhere on the Blog, I said that a twenty-eight day curfew was needed. I explain my reasoning as follows: there would be different viral incubation times for different individuals. Twenty-eight days would appear to be time for all individuals to show manifestations of the infection.

    as I understand things (and that may very well be inaccurate!) covid patients die as a result of the much touted “cytokine storm”.THEY MAY INDEED DO SO, SIR

    I am told cytokines are part of the body’s inflammatory response against infection. YES THIS IS SO SIR

    Too much cytokines MAY INDEED create a cycle of inflammation that damages the cells of the lung.

    Now if a patient has a weakened immune system wouldn’t that mean that less cytokines hence less inflammation occurs? NOT NECESSARILY SIR. THEY ARE OTHER FEATURES OF THE INFLAMMATORY RESPONSE THAT ARE AT PLAY THAT MAY BE INVOLVED BESIDES CYTOKINES
    DEFECTS IN THE SUPPLY OF BLOOD TO LUNG PARENCHYMA AT THE LEVEL OF THE TERTIARY BRONCHIOLES MAY ALSO BE INVOLVED

    THINK SMALL BLOOD VESSELS BRINGING BLOOD TO VERY SMALL BRONCHIOLES – THE LEVEL WHERE GASEOUS EXCHANGE OCCURS

    IF YOU KNOCK OUT EITHER THE BLOOD VESSELS OR THE TERTIARY BRONCHILOES—TROUBLE

    THE PATHO-PHYSIOLOGY HERE apart from cytokines INVOLVES STRUCTURE (ANATOMY), FUNCTION (PHYSIOLOGY) COMPLEX BIOCHEMISTRY (cf my ppts on EO Douglins lecture), IMMUNOLOGY

    HOPE THIS HELPS

  • Cubans cast aside coronavirus fears to search for scarcer food

    HAVANA, (Reuters) – From the seafront capital Havana to the foothills of the Sierra Maestra mountains, Cubans are defying fear of the new coronavirus to search for food as global trade disruptions worsen shortages of basic goods on the Caribbean island.

    Residents of all ages are trudging from store to store in the country to locate scarce goods despite recommendations from health experts to stay at home and respect social distancing guidelines to avoid contracting the highly contagious disease.

    Communist-run Cuba imports more than 60% of its food, but the pandemic has forced its government to close the borders, denying it the hard currency from tourism needed to pay for goods from overseas. The leisure industry accounts for 25% of the country’s foreign exchange earnings.

    With shortages biting, many residents are using apps to swarm shops when coveted products arrive – from chicken and cheese to powdered milk and tomato sauce – creating long lines on the streets of Havana where police attempt to keep order.

    Stupssseee!!!

    Wunna know that I always had a story.

    In the village in which I was raised the shop keeper had taught her children who worked in the shop that “14 ounces make a pound”

    This came out when the teacher could not get the child to understand sums. So teacher questioned the elementary aged school child to find out why this very bright child was not getting it. The child replied “when i working in we shop, my ma tell me that 14 ounces make a pound”

    True story. But the “child” and the teacher are both still alive so I can’t say na more.

  • Iceland has tested more of its population for coronavirus than anywhere else. Here’s what it learned

    By Friday, Iceland will have achieved something no other country has: tested 10% of its population for coronavirus, a figure far higher than anywhere else in the world.

    No country or scientist or doctor has all the answers about the pandemic that has swept the globe, infecting more than 1.6 million people and killing at least 95,000.

    But some places, such as tiny Iceland, Europe’s most sparsely populated country – pop. 364,134, broadly equivalent to the number of people in Tulsa, Oklahoma – may be better placed to deliver some types of coronavirus information, and even answers, than most, at least in the short term, according to public health experts, international government officials and others involved in responding to the outbreak.

    Facing a crisis to rival Pearl Harbor: World’s superpower pleads for coronavirus aid

    “The size of a place matters. It tracks with the number of introductions of the virus. It is no coincidence the places now doing (the best work) share this feature,” said William Hanage, an epidemiologist at Harvard University’s T.N. Chan School of Public Health.

    To be clear, Iceland has not yet been able to provide definitive explanations for the most pressing coronavirus questions vexing scientists, politicians and publics the world over. Among them: its transmissibility; why it hits some people exceptionally hard and affects others only mildly; the most promising vaccines and treatments; actual mortality rates; and whether lifting lockdowns will later usher in a deadly second and third wave of new infections – if the so-called coronavirus curve, in fact, looks more like a loop.

    I found some information about a lecture he was supposed to give at Combermere School Hall on Friday November 27th, 2008 at 7.00pm. The following information was also given, which, putting all things aside, is pretty impressive:

    Bio:

    Hal Austin is a Senior Editor of the Financial Adviser, and has been an editor there for over ten years.

    Before that he worked as a freelancer, on contract or staff for Professional Pensions, the News of the World, Sunday Times, Sunday People, Evening Standard, BBC Radio, where he was a news and current affairs producer, and for the Daily Mail, where he worked for 14 years.

    Hal has been:

    Pension reporter of the year,
    Investment reporter of the year and
    Won the Association of British Insurers’ Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008.

    Hal, who was born in the Ivy, St Michael, won a scholarship to attend Combermere School and left in 1963. He then went on to study at Middlesex Polytechnic (now university), and undertook various undergraduate and post-graduate studies at Cardiff, Thames Valley and Bristol Universities. Hal also done a number of course at the London Business School.

    Hal has been living in London now for over 40 years, and have been a financial journalist for well over 30 years. Hal was the driving force behind the joint Financial Times/City University Masters degree in financial journalism, which comes on stream in September 2010. {QUOTE}

    .. so their fellow crooks…finances the election campaign with the money they stole from taxpayers, pensioner and whatever loans borrowed in the people’s name that they skimmed off the top………..AND REPEAT…next election cycle..

    Since 74.58% of Bajans who turned out to vote in May 2018, voted for this BLP government, are you suggesting that 74.58% of Bajans are big business people or drug lords?

  • “Greene April 10, 2020 3:06 PM #: There are confirmed reports of price gouging going on in Bim during this shut down.”

    @ Mr. Greene

    That’s true….. and I’ll ad there were reports of price gouging before the first curfew was announced. As far back as early March people were complaining of price gouging, relative to an obvious increase in the prices of items such as hand sanitisers and Lysol wipes, which are now in high demand.

    Take Jordan’s Supermarket, for example. Customers complained the price of ‘Lysol’ increased to $19.99 to $26.85. The explanation Jordan’s purchasing manager gave, was in December 2019, they purchased ‘Lysol’ at a special price of $162 per case. In March, 3 months after, the price increased to $211 per case.

    To be fair, a meeting was held between the Barbados Private Sector Association, whose Chairman, Edward Clarke, sought to address the issue… and the Minister of Small Business, Entrepreneurship and Commerce Dwight Sutherland, who said ‘government’ would work with the business community to maintain a pricing regime that allows for a stable structure.

    People encountering what they suspect may be price gouging, could also go to the FTC.

    As it relates to this silly issue of egg prices. Local eggs have been retailing between 70¢ and $1.00 at various supermarkets and village shops, not ‘just the other day,’ but for a very long time now. However, what has been occurring, is people are importing eggs and selling them much cheaper.

    The problem with Barbadians is they don’t ‘shop around.’ If anyone believes 85¢ is too much to pay for an egg, they could either check which establishment has them cheaper, or they could buy and complain.

    I remember one night going at Freddy in Tweedside Road to buy a pork chop, when I heard $25, I said, “Nah… keep it, dat too expensive.”

    My other choice was to buy it and, similarly to Mariposa, come to BU complaining it’s ‘government’s’ fault Freddy’s pork chops are so expensive.

  • RE: “Not everyone has the ease of shopping around. Not everyone has there (their) own mean of transportation.”

    @ Mariposa

    I beg to differ.

    You can’t deny the fact, FOR EXAMPLE, several people shop in Bridgetown, where several different supermarkets, convenience stores and mini-marts are located, all in close proximity to each other and the bus terminals……….. and some with shuttle service.

    Consumers’ choices vary from Jordan’s, Cherish, Lionel C. Hill, 2 Savings Plus, 3 Popular Discounts in Spry Street, ShopSmart, Scotty’s, Buy-Rite, Chickmont, French and a few more I can’t recall at this time.

    Then there are vendors on the ‘way side’ all over town, as well as in the Marhill Street, Palmetto Square, Cheapside and Harbour Road markets.

    Based on the above, if I were to follow your logic, I won’t have “the ease of shopping around” between Savings Plus on St. Michael’s Row and a ‘stone’s throw away’ at Popular Discounts in Spry Street, because I don’t have my “own means of transportation.”

    The list includes discarded West Indies Test opener Rajindra Chandrika, Demetri Cameron, Steve Ramdass, Kandasammy Surujnarine, Paul Wintz, Garfield Benjamin, Samuel Kishnasammy and Dion Ferrier who were all playing in the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board National League.
    Stabroek Sport reached out to a few of those players who shared their views on the situation.
    Their biggest concern, they said was the uncertainty of when they will be able to return home.
