To BLP Administration: Re. Covid 19 protocols

Submitted by William Parker

I wish to congratulate the BLP government on their handling of the Covid 19 in 2020.

Now that the various “versions” of the original Virus has reached here and the infection rate and deaths are spiralling out of control it is apparent to some, including me, that the government has no answers and is reacting and not pro-acting.

I understand the need for the current lockdown and we all know that 2 weeks is just a start and it will be needed for a lot longer.

However the shutting on the mini marts and way side vendors leaves a lot of us bewildered as the logic behind it. In the area that I live R&R convenience, Mikes Mini Mart, EZ mini Mart and all the others are closed. These were locally owned shops where the poor, and not so poor, could get a little credit until the NIS cheque arrives, when the Post Office reopens, and walk a short distance home in the fresh air.

Now these people have to get an occasional bus to Massy in Oistins, and mix with those in the shop and be infected not only by the current shoppers but those who were there one or two hours ago. Are you telling us that it is safer for a person, who does not have a car, to catch a ZR and travel to Oistins to get a few items than to visit the corner shop?

The word that I have heard from more than one person is that in the last shut down the Major Supermarkets lost a lot of revenue because people switched to minimarts and a lot of way side vendors started. Is the way to make sure that the large foreign owned companies got more of the pie? It certainly seems so.

You have closed them on weekends so their overall sales will increase and their overheads will decrease. Bajans have been very good in following the new rules, and rightfully so, but there is a growing undercurrent of frustration and if the government is not careful there will be mass disobedience. This will hurt everyone. I hope that you can take a pause and consider the additional hardships you are causing a lot of Barbadians.

Thank you. I am a proud Bajan and supporter of the BL&P in the last few elections.

    Wasn’t one of the early reason was because people were catching and keeping bats for food..

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++

    Bat meat or their feces in water enters the body the same way, is processed through the same route and expelled at the same point!!

    Ends up in the sewage, treated in some cases in septic tanks!!

    Detection in the wastewater indicates the presence in the ‘catchment’ area.

    I believe the instructions are that you get tested if you have symptoms. Has nothing to do with detection in wastewater. Hand wash, wear masks social distance and isolate until you get the results or symptoms resolves.

    So how many people do we know of who have been infected directly from eating or preparing bat meat?

    Zero.

    It is just a theory, not a fact!!

  • Singapore as has been pointed out uses 3 steps to ensure no virus gets into the drinking water.

    Even if the virus is present in the wastewater used for treatment and production of drinking water, little if any is going to get out.

    That’s the technology we need.

    The main reason in such a jurisdiction for testing wastewater is to confirm or not the presence of any infected persons in a catchment area who can spread the virus the airborne way.

    Because Singapore collects literally every drop of sewage to recycle, the presence of the virus at any point in the sewage lines can be traced back to source.

    We don’t have that tracing facility.

    Singapore’s water production facilities are tightly controlled and there is little if any virus getting into the drinking water to infect and get spread the airborne way.

    Ultimately, they will be close to virus free once they control the airborne spread and drive its occurrences down towards zero.

    The virus in the waste water will disappear as it can’t go anywhere and will die.

    That’s how to get rid of it.

    Here are Singapore’s cases I posted before.

    They begun and were spread by airborne infection until that mode was knocked out and the virus was present if at all in drinking water in minute quantities so the chances of infection were close to zero.

    Hence the numbers, hence close to zero cases..

    Regarding the new goalpost of vaccine “herd Immunity” in exchange for having our basic human rights back, since when did the presence of an infectious disease create cause to disregard bodily autonomy?

    Since the media decided to cause a panic about COVID-19 in particular? Are individuals also obligated to take every single other vaccine for every single other infectious disease based on state or group pressure?

    Statistically, COVID-19 is a relatively high risk to a fraction of the population – those with comorbidites.

    The reasonable response is to allow those with comorbidites, or anyone who is fearful, the choice to be vaccinated to reduce their likelihood of developing severe complications. But we have jumped into this mass psychosis of disproptionate response. It has become irrational and almost cult-like. We are being required to think, feel and behave the same way.

    Why must we demand that everyone, regardless of their actual personal risk assessment, be cowed into conformity with the group?.”

    Nobody is forcing anybody to be vaccinated.

    What is happening now is that Barbados being a small place everybody now knows somebody who has had Covid, so everybody now knows that the Covid deniers are LIARS. We are almost at the point where everybody knows somebody who has died of Covid, so for most people Covid has now become real-real. And now most people know that the vaccine deniers are LIARS.

    People are rushing to be vaccinated, not because anybody is forcing them, not because anybody is infringing on their rights, but because they don’t want to die just like the woman or man who used to work with them, or who went to school with them, or who is their in-law, or who is their neighbor or church member.

    For the hard-ears people Covid19 is now real-real.

    And here is a saying from my old man, “Nobody wants to be old, and nobody wants to die young either”

    Wha’ to do?

    The people rushing for the vaccine are making the choice to be old, as that is much better than dying young.

    all the info was out there since March last year, and we kept getting more and more, it’s the government that was acting as though the only country in the world that could not lose control of the virus was Barbados, while inviting all and sundry from HOTSPOT countries although people were expressing CONCERN….they did not listen, but there was and still is no shortage of information about the virus, although science is still learning about it, they did not hold back info, they won’t dare.

    Locking down was obsolete after Dr. Zelenko came out with his treatment protocol in March/April. https://www.vladimirzelenkomd.com/

    Closing borders and lockdowns is like when you were a child, did something wrong and run outside laughing cause gran gran cannot catch you. But you already know how this story ends, gran gran will have the final laugh when you think she forget you and you come back home to eat or sleep. Licks now or later but you guaranteed to get licks in the end.

    Unless we can isolate Barbados for 3 years, the only way out is with a cheap effective treatment protocol.

    “But we know for example the Polio Virus is spread by fecal matter in the water and it infects!!”
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    So too do the bacterium cholera and certain strains of E-coli.

    Shouldn’t you therefore be equally concerned that the HIV can also be transmitted to ‘innocent persons’ through the same “fecal matter” ‘disposed’ in the water by infected persons?

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    So, ask google this question and see what its answer is!!

    How long can HIV survive in water?
    How long does HIV live outside the body in water? One older study showed that after 1 to 2 hours in tap water, only 10 percent of the HIV virus was still active. After 8 hours, only 0.1 percent was active. This shows that HIV doesn’t survive long when exposed to water.

  • Then look at polio.

    It can survive for a few weeks.

    https://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/poliomyelitis/facts

    Transmission
    Humans are the only known reservoir of polio virus.
    The virus is transmitted via droplets or aerosols from the throat and by faecal contamination of hands, utensils, food and water. The majority of transmissions occur through person-to-person contact via the faeco-oral route, although the oro-oral route is also possible.
    The incubation period is approximately 7—10 days (range 4–35 days) and about 24% of infected individuals develop clinical symptoms including fever, headache and sore throat.
    Infected persons are most infectious from 7 to 10 days before and after the onset of symptoms. However, poliovirus is excreted in the stools for up to six weeks.
    Immunodeficient patients can, in rare cases, become asymptomatic chronic carriers of WPV and VDPV.
    Poliovirus can survive at room temperature for a few weeks. Soil, sewage and infected water have been shown to harbour the virus.
    All unimmunised persons are susceptible to the infection. Infants in the first six months may have some protection from passively transferred maternal immunity. Children younger than five years are at highest risk.
    Poliovirus is highly infectious, with sero-conversion rates of 90–100% among household contacts.

    A reason for their good results
    When one look back at how tourist took to wanting things there way and govt decisons under attack by the Hotel industry was a tell that govt Portocols would fail
    Those three countries lead while barbados govt was misled by the Hotel industry.

  • This is his life story.
    ·
    “I’m blown by the fact that the last Black American to be legally enslaved, Sylvester Magee, died in 1971. (1841-1971) the man lived for 130 years! This means if you’re 48 or older, you lived at the same time as slaves. Slavery wasn’t that long ago. Let’s stop pretending it was.
    Sylvester Magee may have been the last living slave in America, and the oldest person who ever lived! Born a slave in North Carolina, he was the son of slaves named Ephraim and Jeanette, who worked on the J.J. Shanks plantation. At age 19, just before the Civil War, Sylvester was purchased from a slave market at Enterprise, Mississippi by Hugh Magee, whose surname Sylvester eventually adopted. Hugh Magee owned the Lone Star Plantation in Covington County, Mississippi. One source indicated that Magee was in time sold by Magee to Victory Steen, who operated a plantation near Florence, Mississippi. Sylvester eventually ran away from the Steen plantation and joined the ranks of the Union Army. Magee obtained his freedom after the fall of Vicksburg and served with Union troops. By the mid-1960s, due to his advanced age, Sylvester Magee became nationally famous. On his 124th birthday the citizens of Collins, Mississippi threw him a party and Magee was sent a letter of congratulations from President Lyndon Johnson. Governor Paul Johnson even declared the day « Sylvester Magee Day. » Magee took his first flight to New York for a television appearance and later flew to Philadelphia to appear on the Mike Douglas Show. He appeared in the March 1967 issue of Jet magazine, and was noted by President Richard Nixon as probably the oldest citizen of the United States, having been identified as the nation’s oldest living person by a life insurance company. When asked why he had lived so long, he simply stated that the Lord had been good to him. Reportedly, his last words were « Lord have mercy. » Sylvester Magee was likely the last living human being who possessed any firsthand memory of the trials of the Civil War or institutionalized slavery. #bhm”

    RE: “Grenada to open its Borders to tourism in April. Grenada closed its borders in December 2020 to ensure the safety of its people.”

    Before I ‘say’ you’re misleading BU, perhaps you may want to present the source of your information so we could probably discuss this issue further.

    From what I’ve read:

    (1). GND is expecting a MORE active tourism sector from April 2021 and one of the reasons given is “because commercial passenger flights from the United Kingdom are set to coincide with the reopening of Sandals and other properties in the accommodation sector.”

    (2). GND’s borders were NOT closed in December 2020. The Ministry of Civil Aviation announced the suspension of all passenger air traffic between Grenada and the UK, effective 10pm on Sunday, December 20, 2020, until further notice, due to the new variant strain of COVID-19 in that country.

    However, international travel to and from other countries were to CONTINUE, under the enforcement of strict entry requirements and quarantine measures for travelers.

    @ManyPoser the treacherous clown. Grenada had reopened its borders since Oct 2020. It had only forced Sandals to close in Mid December. There was a travel ban imposed to and from the UK ONLY from 22nd December until Feb 1st. Travel from other countries was allowed with restrictions.

    Since you have the mind of an infant. I was that hinting to the fact that the correlation between border closures and containing the virus spread was weak. Using the smaller CARICOM countries, most that had closed their ports reopened them by Oct 2020 and kept them open even when cases had spiked

    As of March 1st:-
    Dominica:- population=approx 71,000; total cases = 148; deaths=0
    St Kitts:- population~ 52,000; total cases = 40, deaths = 0
    Grenada:- population=111,000; total cases= 148 deaths 1
    Antigua:- population ~ 97,000, total cases = 730 deaths 14
    St Vincent:- population ~ 110,000 total cases 1418, deaths 6;
    Barbados:- population ~ 287,000; total cases = 3115; deaths = 36
