COVID 19: NO Retreat, No Surrender

The fight against COVID 19 by countries across the globe is real. Barbados given its heavy dependence on tourism (services) is exposed more than some other countries. We are here now and we have to do all that we can to survive. The blogmaster predicted months ago the conversations will shift to finding ways to enforce mandatory vaccinations. It is a conversation currently taking place across the globe, including Barbados.


 

This week’s charts suggest that we might be at the start of a new wave that could last for months as was the case of the earlier 2021 waves in Jamaica, Guyana, T&T and St Lucia and with the added complication of the presence of the very virulent delta variant in the region. The signs that suggest otherwise are that the daily positivity charts are all at less than 5% over the past 3 weeks and that the Covid-19 teams are continuing their good work and that, despite the very high odds against, the aggressive work by the Authorities have so far resulted in fairly significant levels of vaccination take up. The ride will still be a rough one but everyone needs to do their part to conquer this insidious foe

  • There is just not sufficient data available from acceptable sources to say anything about the ability of the Jab to prevent you getting sick.

    My experience with the flu shots I had when I was in the US 8-10 years ago is that after I had them the frequency of catching flu was reduced and the seriousness was also reduced.

    It would not surprise me if the same thing happened with the COVID jabs.

    People, mandatory vaccination to work is coming. The stage has already been set. All the big players responsible for making the decision i.e. BPSA, CMO, BAMP, Government have all locked step in letting fear rule them and will selectively follow and ignore the science they choose to achieve whatever their vaccinate every last man, woman and child goal. They, like the rest of the world will hide any statistics indicating otherwise. The only reason government delaying is because elections close and if they back the wrong horse they will be branded a totalitarian government and start loosing seats.

    What are our worker’s union view on this mandatory vaccination push, especially NUPW and BWU since their positions have the most weight? It seems they are purposely keeping quiet while they decide which side to pick.

    Nearly 100% vaccinated Israel is seeing a resurgence in COVID cases with protection against transmission already less than 40% just like Dr Geert Vanden Bossche said would happen if you have a vaccine that is good at preventing severe disease but poor at preventing infection and release it to the masses during and ongoing pandemic.

    The breakthrough infections in Israel are ticking up with the Delta variant (https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/medical/israel-says-pfizer-covid-vaccine-is-just-39-effective-as-delta-spreads-but-still-prevents-severe-illness/ar-AAMu3IG)

    The vaccines are getting worse very fast at preventing transmission but are currently still very good at preventing severe illness/death. Breakthrough infections will continue to escalate since strong variants will continue to emerge because of the vaccinated people will become true asymptomatic carriers acting as walking variant factories.

    Come fall/winter season, the current vaccines will probably be useless at slowing transmission the way things are going.

    Vaccines only work for the variant they were designed for and the percentage efficacy will drop from that initial percentage the more the virus is allowed to mutate.

    We need to stop this focus on vaccines and futile effort at constant testing person and contacts and treating them as infected even if they have no symptoms.

    We need cheap, early outpatient treatment options, period. Once we have that, we can focus on only testing symptomatic, then contact trace the primary contacts and inform them to monitor themselves for symptoms so they can get the early outpatient treatment to significantly reduce the odds of them progressing. That is our only way out whether they realize it now or in December when they finally realize the vaccine is only a stopgap.

  • Rather than argue over the vaccine lets look at the environment that our major source market is in.

    The UK 2 months ago was averaging around 2000 new cases a day. They are now averaging around 40,000 with 95% of them being made up of the new delta variant. So why this massive jump in the UK infections?

    The answer is simple over that period of time they had Football, Wimbledon Tennis and the F1 racing where the Tv showed few if any people wearing masks. So even in a country with relatively high vaccination rates the lesson is if you drop your controls the virus will take over. So what do we know for sure ? We know that persons in the UK who were vaccinated have caught the delta variant. We know the vaccine is not as effective against it as first thought. Unfortunately their easing of protocol and heightened infections is bad news for us, as if this continues Boris no doubt will clamp down on travel again. But we also know that if we stick to protocols like mask wearing etc our chances of control are way better. No one knows how long this thing will be with us but we do know how to protect ourselves with protocols combined with vaccination.

  • Fauci says new mask guidelines for vaccinated Americans under active consideration by CDC amid delta outbreak

    Dr. Anthony Fauci announced on Sunday that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is assessing new COVID-19 guidelines that would require face masks for those who are already vaccinated. Fauci, who is the chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden, said the change in mask guidance may be necessisary because the United States is “going in the wrong direction” as far as COVID-19 cases.

    During an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union, Fauci cautioned, “And I have said, it is really a pandemic among the unvaccinated, so this is an issue predominantly among the unvaccinated, which is the reason why we’re out there, practically pleading with the unvaccinated people to go out and get vaccinated.”

    Fauci expressed concern about the outbreak of the virulent delta variant, “And since we have 50 percent of the country [that] is not fully vaccinated, that’s a problem, particularly when you have a variant like Delta, which has this extraordinary characteristic of being able to spread very efficiently and very easily from person to person.”

    Because of the delta variant, some local governments, such as Los Angeles County, have reimposed its mask requirement for people in public locations, including for those who are fully vaccinated. In May, the CDC issued a new guidance that said fully vaccinated Americans are no longer advised to wear face masks indoors or outdoors under most circumstances. However, Fauci said the CDC may walk back its mask guidance for those who received the COVID-19 vaccine.

    This has nothing to do with the election or the COVID-19 crisis. It’s a huge, unstoppable stock market trend.

    “That’s a local decision that’s not incompatible with the CDC’s overall recommendations that give a lot of discretion to the locals,” Fauci told host Jake Tapper. “And we’re seeing that in L.A. We’re seeing it in Chicago. We’re seeing that in New Orleans, because the officials there, many of them are saying, ‘Even if you’re vaccinated, it’s prudent to wear a mask indoors.’”

    Fauci revealed that mask mandates for vaccinated Americans are “under active consideration” by the CDC, and said that he is “part of the discussion.”

    Fauci praised Republicans, including Govs. Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas and Ron DeSantis of Florida, for fervently urging their constituents to get the coronavirus vaccine.

    “What I would really like to see is more and more of the leaders in those areas that are not vaccinating to get out and speak out and encourage people to get vaccinated,” Fauci said.

    The director of the U.S. National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said a booster shot “might likely” happen, which would be for people with suppressed immune systems, such as organ transplant and cancer patients.

    Over 163 million people, or 49.1% of the eligible U.S. population, are vaccinated, according to CDC data.

    Then we can agitate for repeal of laws or we boot you out of power or we can sue like some of the other people and business owners with the resources to do so have done.

    That is one of the reasons I have been constantly asking what is the recourse in Barbados if someone is injured by the vaccine and what will happen if it is mandated and injury results from that forced mandate.

    We in Barbados like opening cans of worms expecting them to remain in the can because we tell them to stay in the open can.

    Does a Condom prevent pregnancy 100% of the time?

    Had a nice discussion with a microbiologist who argued that the virus is too big to fit and it could therefore not be spread by desalination.

    The point that the process is a production process subject to breakdowns completely eluded the microbiologist who assumed perfection.

    1) Do you think slaves had a real vote in naming places. One could also point out that the desire to name places harmony could have been prompted by the amount of disharmony there was in the society.

    2) if you understood the slave-master relationship, you would understand there was a ” whole lot of harmony”. Disharmony could have brought a harsh and cruel punishment.

  • Extreme right-wingers – wrong!

    Extreme left-wingers – wrong!

    All extremists who cling to beliefs in the face of all evidence to the contrary, in the face of provable falsehoods are WRONG.

    Here’s an example of balance – “Defund the Police!” STUPID! “Reform the Police! Smart. It is obvious that a police officer can err while making split second decisions under high pressure. Not all police killings of unarmed black men are as a result of racism. Each case must be examined on its own merit. But it is obvious that police officers are not always the best persons to make decisions when perhaps mental health is the issue. Some serious reform or re-imagining is necessary. But there must be policing and sometimes force is necessary.

    But John Knox saw nothing wrong with what Derek Chavin did to George Floyd. He has no problem with the police acting as judge, jury and executioner on the spot. And GP said he did not die from having a knee on his neck for 9 minutes and 29 seconds. Several experts disagreed. They were able to explain why. The defence’s expert was DEFENCELESS. I watched the trial.

    These people twist the facts to suit their agenda.
