Barbados: Following the Science on Covid 19?

Submitted by Tee White

The recent statement by the representative of the DLP calling on the government to initiate a ‘pause for the cause’ and a response from the current BLP government for the DLP to get on board with the effort to persuade Bajans to be vaccinated has once again highlighted the challenge facing the country with regard to managing the Covid outbreak and protecting the population as best possible.

One mantra that has become synonymous with Covid 19 is the declaration to “follow the science”. But this declaration presents science as a body of knowledge which tells you what to do in any situation. However, what it misses is that more importantly, science is a method which human beings use to try to get a better understanding of how the natural and social worlds work so as to work out what to do. Unfortunately, this understanding of science as method is lacking from the government’s response to the Covid crisis. It is a feature that is common across the Caribbean, where government policies are simply copied from abroad, usually North America and Europe, and are not informed by any scientific studies conducted by Caribbean scientists on the actual impact of Covid 19 in the Caribbean.

But without such an approach, there will be no exit from the Covid crisis. Due to the struggles of our ancestors and Errol Barrow’s government, the descendants of the enslaved Africans in this country were given mass access to secondary education. Today, more than ever, we need to draw on our ability to think critically and question everything, to make sense out of nonsense, to find our bearings in the current situation.

Under pressure from local and global elites, the government has embarked on a policy of persuading Bajans to engage in mass vaccination in the hope that this will lead to an exit from the Covid 19 nightmare. To its credit, it has not succumbed to the pressure to embark on the insane policy of vaccine coercion, which is taking hold in the region and which is exemplified in Guyana, Antigua and St Vincent and the Grenadines. But does the policy of indiscriminate mass vaccination actually make any sense? To date, according to officially provided data, just over 3% of the world’s population have tested positive for Covid. That means that 97% have not. Of that 3%, just over 2% have died as a result of Covid infection. That means that 98% of those infected have survived. As a percentage of the world’s population, 0.064% have died as a result of Covid infection. With regard to hospitalisation as a result of Covid infection, there are no global figures currently available but data from the European Medicines Agency state that around 7% of those infected in Europe and the USA, some of the areas with the worst Covid 19 outcomes, have required hospitalisation.

The question then arises as to whether mass vaccination of everyone you can lay your hands on represents a rational or scientific response to the Covid threat. In the circumstances where Barbados, like other CARICOM countries and unlike Cuba, has no capacity to produce vaccines and so must spend its time trying to get hold of these internationally, the question arises as to whether it makes good sense to use your limited supply of vaccines vaccinating people who had a low risk of developing severe Covid in order to protect them from severe Covid. Isn’t that just a waste of vaccines? Would it not make more sense to focus your limited supply of vaccines on those who actually would benefit from them? But this is where following the science comes in. But here it will require following the science as method and not as a body of knowledge which tells you what to do. According to data published by the Covid Communications Unit, as of 9 September, Barbados has had 5651positive cases and 51 deaths. There is no publicly available data on the numbers who have required hospital care as a result of Covid infection. After over 50 years of independence, isn’t this a large enough data set for those in the Ministry of Health or in the research departments of UWI to apply science as method to identify the common factors among those who have become infected and those who have progressed to serious illness and death so that this information can be used to inform the policy to combat the virus and allow for more targeted use of the vaccines?

There are those who promote mass vaccination as the silver bullet that will allow us to return to normalcy, but is this belief based on science? The data from highly vaccinated countries like Israel and Iceland suggest otherwise. With regard to our own reality, the official data published on 9 September shows that 0.094% of the vaccinated population are currently in tertiary isolation in St Lucy compared to 0.246% of the unvaccinated population. Clearly vaccines are not a silver bullet and we will need to think more widely about prevention and treatment for those who are sick. In china, the health authorities make use of traditional chines medicine along with modern medicine to treat those who are sick and in Cuba they have made use of homeopathic medicine in the same way. We will need to think outside of the box with a focus on saving the lives of the small minority who are seriously threatened by the virus but to find solutions we will need our own scientists to take up their responsibility to society and begin to carry out science as method to provide us with answers to pressing questions rather than simply repeating what they hear from North America and Europe. Then we really can follow the science with regard to Covid 19.

    I posit again. The world response to COVID-19 is flawed and the emphasis needs to be rigid enforcement and adherence of protocols. How will open economies like Barbados tourist dependent expect to isolate itself when the vaccinated tourist will continually import the virus.

  • My man, I just came in from walking the stray dog down by the cliffs. This morning, since we are now in sync, I tackled the steep steps down to the beach. I got my feet wet. She had a bath. She did not like it at all. The east coast waves, I guess. When I let her, that five pound puppy pulled me straight out of the water, clear across the sand and up the steps with haste. Not hanging around was my Suga! It was hilarious!

    Watered my plants. Pulled some weeds. Reaped some okras. Admired my flowers, recalling the names my best friend taught me yesterday.

    And here I am watching CPL highlights.

    No anxiety. No fear. If Bajans wish to self-destruct, I stand a pretty good chance of being one of the survivors.

    Don’t have to leave home really. Don’t have anyone in my home who has to leave home at all. Just the two of us content with our own company.

    With Moderna and Biontech-Pfizer, the epidemic is completely controllable – provided our government finally stands up to the radical anti-vaccination opposition and their lawyers.

    It is not acceptable that harmless vaccinated tourists and the vaccinated, sensible majority of our local population continue to suffer at the hands of a radical minority and their treacherous advocates of the opposition.

    Any politician who speaks out in public against universal vaccination is an enemy of the people according to Corona’s emergency legislation. If no criminal offence is applicable, the emergency legislation allows at least protective custody until the end of the crisis.

    I think all the link is saying is that if you have been infected by COVID and have been lucky enough to survive, you may be a hard target for future infections to hit.

    But I am no doctor, I can only wait and see and have a little faith that God is watching over me.

    Someone once sent me Psalm 91 after I had survived 7 minutes of extreme darkness and survived.

    I was struck by this passage.

    4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

    5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

    6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

    7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

    In this way I try to set any disorder of fear or anxiety which the doctors describe as a major comorbidity to one side and get on fearlessly with the life God gave me and which only He can take as he pleases.

    The only injury I sustained in those 7 minutes of extreme darkness was when I decided to take matters into my own hands and not do as I was being directed.

    I learnt a lesson.

    So, I’ll wait and see this time.

  • Three types of confidence

    There are at least three types of confidence. The first is the type of confidence you have when you’ve done something over and over. You’ve already succeeded at doing the thing so many times that you are confident that you can do it again. Think about riding a bicycle or driving. If you are an experienced rider or driver, you hop in or on that seat without giving it a second thought, with a confidence that does not doubt, that does not question.
    The second type of confidence comes not necessarily from having succeeded at the thing before but from having prepared thoroughly for it. Even though you may not have had the experience of actual success in a real-world setting, you may have practised, or rehearsed doing the thing to such an extent that you are confident that when the time comes, you will rise to the occasion.
    If you’ve had a good instructor, you should have successfully simulated the driving test so many times that you have a reasonable level of confidence that you will pass. However, taking a test, like the driver’s license test, for instance, can be nerve-racking. Even if you’ve done the thing a hundred times in practice, there is something about a situation when the stakes are high that can bring your self-belief down low. Every experienced driver knows the difference between the confidence of a well-practised learner and that of a seasoned veteran of the highways and byways.
    The first and second types of confidence are related, in that the first type of confidence can be an alternative form of the second type of confidence, and the second can be an alternative version of the first. Let me explain. Having successfully done a three-point turn during driving lessons, you can be fairly confident to extremely confident that you will be able to do it if asked to in your driving test.
    The new context of a testing situation is a big deal to some but not a big deal to others. If your psychology is such that the higher stakes of the test don’t test your confidence, then your confidence, in this situation, is more like the first type. Though you’ve never been through the actual situation, the rehearsals and practice sessions are close enough to make you feel like you’ve been in the real deal situation before.
    If you, however, are the kind of person who feels added pressure when placed in high-stakes situations, even when you have successes under your belt, then your confidence is more akin to the second kind. You may even have passed the test or been through the situation several times before. But every time you enter a high-stakes situation you may start to feel the pressure. If you are a good singer at home, for example, and you’ve ever tried to sing in front of an audience, you know what I mean. Those eyeballs looking on can add a layer of pressure that shakes your confidence and negatively affects your performance.
    Confidence is not only about competence, what you can actually do. Confidence is also about what you think, what you believe, your attitude.
    Confidence is in your mind.
    The third kind of confidence brings home this point about confidence being about attitude and in your mind and not necessarily related to what you have the experience to do. The third kind of confidence is a general state of being that some people seem to possess all the time and most people have probably experienced at some point in time.
    It is the kind of confidence that does not stem from previous successes or from practice or rehearsal. It is totally a product of your mind and nervous system.
    No prior experience
    Have you ever been confident in a situation which you were totally unprepared or unqualified for? We all know that person who gets by not on skills or experience but seemingly on self-belief, self-esteem or, as we would say, confidence.
    Another word for this kind of confidence could be “faith”.
    I know this word may trigger some non-religious people, but it is what it is. There are times when you have to do what you’ve never done, be what you’ve never been, go through what you’ve never gone through. You have no prior experience of the situation and you had no chance to study or rehearse. In a situation like this you need that third kind of confidence. You need some faith.
    What you have faith in is up to you. The fact is that you are called to believe you can succeed without prior evidence. This is not a religious statement.
    This is where many of us are in our lives today.
    This is where we are as a nation.

  • The legal opinion on vaccine mandates

    I wish to briefly comment on an aspect of the excellent legal opinion on vaccine and PCR mandates that was prepared by Leslie Haynes QC at the request of the Barbados Government. The opinion has since been widely circulated.
    I agree with the majority of the views expressed in the opinion and consider it very well researched and articulated. I believe that vaccine mandates may be justified for some roles within high risk jobs where the duties make social distancing impossible and the risk of interacting with COVID-19 positive people is high. However, I disagree with some of Mr Haynes arguments used to justify vaccine mandates in high- to moderate-risk work environments.
    At paragraphs 2.2.46 to 2.2.47 of his opinion, Mr Haynes argues, among other things, that vaccine mandates in high-risk environments may be justified since vaccination reduces the likelihood of severe illness and hospitalisation, “so as to manage any hospital surge . . . and would satisfy the employer’s steps as are reasonably practicable to ensure a COVID-19 free workplace and environment”.
    When has it ever been the duty of an employer to protect an employee from the risk of severe illness or hospitalisation for a reason that did not originate from the workplace environment, its procedures, processes or equipment? I have repeatedly stated that I have found no case where a court held an employer liable for breaching his duty to provide a safe place of work when the employee’s injury or illness was caused by something outside of the workplace and within the general population.
    Are we unreasonably attempting to extend the employer’s duty to something that is outside of his control? An employer cannot forcibly inject the vaccine into an employee, nor can an employer easily dismiss an employee for being unvaccinated without risking financial and legal liability for unfair dismissal.
    The duty to take reasonably practicable steps must be limited to those matters which are within the employers’ actual control, such as enforcing the safety protocols advised by the Ministry of Health within the workplace.
    Case cannot be relied on
    At paragraphs 2.2.53 of his opinion, Mr Haynes references the Australian case of Barber vs Goodstart Early Learning, where the Australian Fair Work Commission held that “the termination of a childcare worker who refused to take a flu shot was justified . . . in light of Goodstart’s legal responsibilities under work and health safety legislation . . . .”
    However, this case cannot be relied on by an employer in Barbados to justify the dismissal of an employee who rejects a COVID-19 vaccine, since: a) The Commissioner who decided the case emphasised that the decision was limited
    to mandating an influenza vaccine within a childcare environment and should not be applied broadly or to the COVID-19 vaccine; b) The law of unfair dismissal in the Australian Fair Work Act 2009 under which the case was decided is significantly different from the law of unfair dismissal in the Barbados Employment Rights Act (ERA). The CCJ clearly stated in its judgment in Cheffette Restaurants Limited that overseas authorities should only be relied on when their legislation is in pari materia to the local legislation; c) the Fair Work Act requires the Commission to consider the harshness of the dismissal by examining whether the conduct of the employee affects the safety and welfare of other workers. No such provision is found in the Barbados ERA; d) The Australian Fair Work ombudsman has since publicly stated that employers should not assume that they can implement a COVID-19 vaccine mandate.
    Finally, at paragraphs 2.2.58 to 2.2.
    59 of his opinion, Mr Haynes suggests that an employer can be liable under the SHAW Act for the knowing or reckless transmission by an employee of the COVID-19 virus within the workplace. However, section 109(2) of the SHAW Act states that an employee is personally liable where he contravenes his duties under the Act.
    Section 123(1) of the act also allows an employer to show that the duty was breached by some other person and that the employer had done all that was reasonably practicable to prevent the breach.

    “India charges WHO Scientist Soumya Swaminathan for Mass Murder: The beginning of Accountability
    3 weeks ago

    Herland Report: India charges WHO Scientist Soumya Swaminathan: India is a forefront nation in demanding accountability from the WHO, the Indian Bar Association (IBA) now suing WHO Chief Scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan.

    They are accusing her of causing the deaths of many Indian citizens by misleading them about the effect of Ivermectin, which she stated did not work against Covid-19.

    As a result, the use of Ivermectin to cure Covid-19 was stopped and Covid cases exploded with deaths increasing ten-fold.

    Point 56 states: “That your misleading tweet on May 10, 2021, against the use of Ivermectin had the effect of the State of Tamil Nadu withdrawing Ivermectin from the protocol on May 11, 2021, just a day after the Tamil Nadu government had indicated the same for the treatment of COVID-19 patients. (Feature photo: WHO Scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan)

    Specific charges included the running of a disinformation campaign against Ivermectin and issuing statements in social and mainstream media to wrongfully influence the public against the use of Ivermectin despite the existence of large amounts of clinical data showing its profound effectiveness in both prevention and treatment of COVID-19.

    In particular, the Indian Bar brief referenced the peer-reviewed publications and evidence compiled by the ten-member Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance (FLCCC) group and the 65-member British Ivermectin Recommendation Development (BIRD) panel headed by WHO consultant and meta-analysis expert Dr. Tess Lawrie.”

    India charges WHO Scientist Soumya Swaminathan: Dr. Paul Craig Roberts comments: As I posted this morning, Florida’s governor Ron DeSantis pulled the rug out from under the lying scum that constitutes the American medical establishment by establishing throughout Florida medical centers that cure Covid instead of spreading it with vaccination.

  • One pandemic for sure lasted longer than COVID – 19 , that was the BLACK DEATH.

    But every body accepts these days that at the time of the BLACK DEATH, people were fairly ignorant of medical issues and relied on masks and social distancing as protocols to curtail its spread.

    Silly people. absolutely stupid idiotic people.

    Of course it spread unchecked because the people who were largely ignorant were unable to figure out there was another vector through which they were being infected, that is to say. fleas from rats.

    “Scientists think that plague bacteria circulate at low rates within populations of certain rodents without causing excessive rodent die-off. These infected animals and their fleas serve as long-term reservoirs for the bacteria. This is called the enzootic cycle.”

    Maybe it was the fleas in bats which started COVID!!

    I know, everybody knows COVID is caused by a virus, not bacteria but like me most have not got a clue what the difference is as most of us have know little of microbiology..

    What is plainly happening before our eyes is that technology from 7 centuries ago that failed to work then is continuing to fail to work now.

    Clearly there is another way through which the virus is spreading.

    Maybe we should put a bounty on bats and their fleas.

    There is a far simpler explanation just as there was for the BLACK DEATH.

    The island started recording an upsurge in mid-August of COVID-19 due to mass gatherings, some of which were not authorised.

    The latest figures revealed that local actives cases moved from 5 on August 17 to 1 791 on September 10.

    As a result, the Health authorities declared that the island was affected by community spread with the Delta variant which was detected in early August as the main strain.

    “There are a number of policemen, I think is over 160 odd policemen who are infected, and many of them have to self-quarantine, and it is affecting them and their families and it’s affecting the productive level of the force,” said Dr Keith Mitchell, Prime Minister and Minister for National Security.”

    The Chinese are doing two things.

    FIRST, THEY ARE PREVENTING IT, AN OUNCE OF PREVENTION IS A POUND OF CURE.

    SECOND, IF IT ARISES, THEY ARE CONTROLLING IT.
