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

    I will submit some names for your consideration as they have second guessed and provided alternative remedies at every step of the way.

    I am hoping that this will add to your bench strength and allow you to ignore Dr A Faucci.

    and those who love to swallow government propaganda whole, need to come to terms with reality and stop being STUPID just because it’s not what they want to hear…..it is what it is, we are down to taking a vaccine to reduce severe symtoms, hospitalization, death or a horrible long haul existence where people have committed suicide just to escape the horror……..or the same scenario from an unknown and only now being tested vaccine…

  • This administration under the naïve dictator has become extremely lazy in their thinking. We have been led to believe that our economic future is rooted on the introduction of some miracle vaccine. The vaccine, we were told, would lead to a recovery of our economy. I seem to recall that our economy, post Covid-19, had been in a deep frozen state with little evidence of it thawing.
    The mandatory vaccination of our population will bring little relief to an economy which remains rooted in tourism.
    If the article below is true we will need to revaccinate our population every six months. This is never going to happen.
    We need to accept that we lacy the capacity to fight this virus whilst keeping our borders open to foreigners and tourists who are the principal sources of the spread of this virus.

    Small sacrifiice in a bigger game.

    Lose a few citizens to show how serious the virus was, again, a small sacrifice.

    So the Rest of the World goes in for lockdowns and loses millions of citizens and nails their economies but the lockdowns just don’t work.

    One of them had the temerity to hold up Rand Paul, that attention seeker, as a rational contributor!

    The man is a drama king! Every damn time one person held up a simple vote on a simple matter, one could place a bet on who it was. And if we are reading body language, his screams, “Do not take me seriously!”

    I was just here watching Fauci being interrogated on the issue of the lab. When he is allowed to answer, and he NEVER IS, when Jim Jordan and Rand Paul are putting on their shows, he makes a whole lot of sense.

    All they do is interrupt the man. Last time the poor man kept begging for a chance to answer. And the stupid Democrat in charge was pathetic, AS USUAL. Had NO idea how to control proceedings. It was exasperating, and exhausting to watch.

    It was obvious that THE TRUTH was the last thing these Republicans want to come out. OTHERWISE, THEY WOULD HAVE ASKED QUESTIONS AND LET HIM ANSWER.

    This is why Pelosi refused to allow Jim Jordan on the committee to investigate the January 6th event.

    I do not come here on BU to feed the masses with food that accommodates their taste buds. We have plenty of fast food outlets and local shops in Barbados who earn plenty, by feeding our misguided local population imported diseased meat which would be rejected in a number of developed countries. There is a good reason for this.

    When people speak out on valid issues which should alert Bajans they are often shouted down. Why is it considered a sin to critique a country were so much is wrong? Am I not supposed to pass comment on a country which according to the Dictator is supposed to be “the best run black country in the world”. A country that since its independence has never experienced famine, civil war, catastrophic once in a century weather conditions and the rest. Please remind me how did our country benefit from this “God is a Bajan” life chance opportunity. Did our roads or beaches benefit? What of our Unesco status capital city and its built environment? The island still remains dependent on old fashioned standby water pipes and an elementary sewage systems; and poverty on the island remains rampant. I can continue but I will not. I would advice you to do some research on a number of countries who over the last sixty years have gone through hell. These countries have now moved far ahead of Little England.

    How does one expect Barbados to develop when its citizens remain thin skinned with a false sense that they live in a paradise: the so-called gem of the Caribbean. I am a Bajan citizen born outside of Barbados and have never believed that bullshit. I have travelled too much and refuse to dumb down my views to accommodate a narrow minded group of island folks who should know better.

    Frank, remove the scales from your eyes. Barbados is in a truly awful position with a maximum of two or three roles of the dice remaining before it completely implodes. You as a Bajan should be focusing on issues in the link below.

If we ALL had never used the imperfect contraceptives we would all have had up to 20+ children just as our parents and grandparents had.

    Before spewing your usual uninformed rubbish, you should ask yourself if the retired NAB employees are entitled to the pensions they’re protesting about not receiving.

    It is a known fact that, over the past few years, that Auditor General has been warning the NAB about paying pension to retired persons for which they were not eligible or entitled to receive.

    “The audit for the year ended 31st March 2019 has been completed. As a result, the audit of the accounts are currently up to date. The Board has not been abating (reducing) the pensions of those workers who came into the service after September 1975, by amounts received as National Insurance pensions as required by the Pension Legislation. This matter has been brought to the attention of the Board and management of the NAB by my Office for several years; however no action has been taken to resolve the
    matter.” [Auditor General’s Report 2019, page 80, Cap 5.21]

    NAB’s Home Help Service was established in 1980.

    What we should be the focus of our concern is, if those persons have to repay the pensions thet received and why stop paying the pensions at this time, when they would have framed their lifestyles on current incomes?

    COVID: Entrance of vaccinated to Israel postponed again amid outbreak
    Amid concerns over the rising number of coronavirus cases, police to employ an SMS-based system to verify location of those quarantining.
    By ROSSELLA TERCATIN JULY 20, 2021 12:03

    Vaccinated tourists will not be allowed to enter Israel on August 1, as had been previously planned, Health Ministry Director-General Prof. Nachman Ash said Sunday, also announcing that the authorities will discuss measures to restrict all travel.

    “We are postponing the date for the entry of tourists; it is not going to happen on August 1,” he said, adding that a new date has not been set. “Unfortunately, the current situation does not permit us to allow tourists to enter.”

    The director-general also warned the public that with the Delta variant raging around the world, this is not a time to fly abroad. He said the authorities are examining how to restrict travel, either by expanding the list of countries under the travel ban or severe travel warning, or by other means.
    Channel 12 reported that health official are considering several options for a recommendation to bring before the cabinet, including shutting the airport for non essential traveling and requiring all travelers to enter isolation regardless of their immunization status and the country they fly from. However, according to the report, the most likely recommendation will be to significantly expand the list of countries under travel ban or travel warning – in both cases all returnees have to quarantine, for the first group Israelis are prohibited from visiting unless they obtain a permission from the devoted special governmental committee.

    53 Dead in Gibraltar in 10 Days After Experimental Pfizer mRNA COVID Injections Started

    What Connection Does Gibraltar’s High Covid Death Rate Have With Vaccines?

    The Pfizer Massacre in Gibraltar

    Gibraltar hardly had any Covid cases during 2020, until they began mass vaccination at the very end of 2020, starting with almost 300 newly-vaccinated Spanish healthcare workers working on the island, who travel in daily from the Spanish mainland. Vaccination was started on the local population on January 10. Cases and deaths started to spike quickly.

    Gibraltar: 100% vaccinated – Corona incidence is going through the roof
    REPORT24
    Gibraltar was sold in the media as a prime example of how wonderfully “normal” life could be if only every citizen dutifully picked up his vaccination: on the small peninsula with fewer than 34,000 inhabitants, a vaccination rate of 100% was actually achieved. In the meantime, however, it has become suspiciously quiet around the oh-so-successful country. This is hardly surprising, because the incidence in Gibraltar has exploded: it is currently well over 400.

    Data from Gibraltar already raised serious questions at the beginning of the year when, just in time for the start of the vaccination campaign in January, the previously low corona death rate in the country began to rise massively. Fact checkers financed by the pharmaceutical industry tried to deny any connection between the deaths and the vaccination – but, as usual, they could not provide any counter-evidence: The conclusion was simply that a causal connection was not officially confirmed. Of course, that means nothing – so far, every serious side effect of the Covid vaccine has been downplayed unrestrainedly, until sooner or later an official warning had to be issued.

    And now the numbers from Gibraltar are fueling all doubts about the meaning and purpose of the corona vaccinations. Most recently, a 7-day incidence of a whopping 489.8 was recorded – and the number of cases continues to rise. There are hardly any serious cases; however, this is not surprising, after all, Covid-19 is not dangerous for the majority of the population. Officials attribute the explosion in the number of cases despite vaccination to the delta variant, i.e. the variant because of which every adult (and every child) in this country is supposed to be forced to receive the supposedly protective vaccination.

    Other countries with high vaccination rates also have high case numbers
    Gibraltar is anything but an isolated case . For example, Report24 reported on the Seychelles as early as May : Their vaccination rate is considered exemplary worldwide – to this day the Seychelles have one of the highest vaccination rates in the world. At the same time, however, they also have one of the highest incidences with values ​​well over 500 .”

    as a lump sum it has reduced big numbers to smaller numbers

    but vaccine program is supposed to be a means to opening up places under lockdown, which may result in more deaths, but relatively speaking will be less than they would have been

    the variants seem to be less deadly but still spreading

    seems like easing lockdowns might only be temporary efforts and put they will be put back in place again if things go from bad to worse

    CDC QUIETLY REVOKES COVID TEST EMERGENCY USE AUTHORIZATION, WAIT UNTIL YOU FIND OUT WHY
    Cooter COOTER JULY 29, 2021
    I don’t know if you noticed it or not, but something very unusual happened last year as a result of the pandemic.

    As if by magic, the number of flu cases fell off the face of the earth.

    Take a look at this chart:
    https://steadfastclash.com/the-latest/cdc-quietly-revokes-covid-test-emergency-use-authorization-wait-until-you-find-out-why/

    Isn’t that just the most fascinating thing you’ve ever seen?

    Well, it would be if it were true, but the truth is that this isn’t really the case. I was very suspicious of this reported all last year when I kept seeing the flu at all time lows, yet we saw COVID at the highest levels that we’d seen yet.

    If the masks were really supposed to be helping, and the lockdowns were supposed to be helping, and if this is what was preventing the flu from being spread last year, then how on earth would the same measures not be working for COVID as well. It didn’t make sense.

    That’s because it was false information. The cases were exaggerated once again, just like they were done in the summer.

    According to the CDC,

    After December 31, 2021, CDC will withdraw the request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, the assay first introduced in February 2020 for detection of SARS-CoV-2 only. CDC is providing this advance notice for clinical laboratories to have adequate time to select and implement one of the many FDA-authorized alternatives.

    In preparation for this change, CDC recommends clinical laboratories and testing sites that have been using the CDC 2019-nCoV RT-PCR assay select and begin their transition to another FDA-authorized COVID-19 test. CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses. Such assays can facilitate continued testing for both influenza and SARS-CoV-2 and can save both time and resources as we head into influenza season. Laboratories and testing sites should validate and verify their selected assay within their facility before beginning clinical testing.

    This really says it all. The RT-PCR tests could not differentiate between the flu and COVID. So once again, the numbers are proven to be a lie.

    IT IS SO AMAZING HOW THE SO CALLED “”ESTABLISHED GLOBAL MEDICAL FRATERNITIES”‘ CAN LIE AND MISINFORM THE GLOBE.

    LIARS AND MURDERERS “”FROM THE BEGINNING”””JUST LIKE THEIR DADDY.
