BU Covid 19 Dash

David; attached are 2 Charts on the daily incidence of Covid-19 in Barbados from 1st August to 8th October. They try to provide a picture of how the 3rd wave of the pandemic has been progressing here. They are essentially based on the raw data. The data suggests, to me, that we are near the eye-wall of this category 5 hurricane and can go either way into an eventual stable calm or an extended chaotic nightmare of expanding cases. The majority of the population needs to concentrate on doing what we individually all know is our part to get out this, battered but not broken.

  • QEH in the news again … AND THE WINSTON SCOTT POLYCLINIC NEXT DOOR

    As a result of the current COVID crisis, the Accident and Emergency (A&E) Department of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital is requesting that only cases classified as emergencies should come to the department.

    A media release said today: “As usual, the A&E Department should not see patients with mild symptoms, non-emergencies or those who are coming for testing.”

    The situation has also been exacerbated by the closure of the Winston Scott Polyclinic as a result of the untimely death of a member of their healthcare team.

    All patients presenting to AED will be assessed by experienced nursing and medical professionals and advised appropriately. Those found to be a non-emergency will be referred elsewhere.

    Meanwhile, members of the public who had appointments for COVID tests at the Winston Scott Polyclinic, at Jemmotts Lane, St Michael are asked to go to any of the other testing sites – Brandford Taitt Polyclinic, Black Rock; Eunice Gibson Polyclinic, Warrens, or the main testing site at the Wildey Gymnasium, Wildey, all in St Michael.

    Did the member of Staff at the Winston Scott Polyclinic who sadly passed get infected at work or at home?

    Another example of a case in the blue zone unfortunately resulting in death.

    Vaccinated or unvaccinated, the member of Staff died.

    So the polyclinic is closed.

    No doubt it will be sanitized, procedures reviewed, above security heightened all perhaps to no avail if the enemy is entering underground through the pipes.

  • While over in Nelson Street, the Flying Squad, acting on intelligence from the public, swooped in on Vincy Town to ensure protocols are being observed.

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

    Head of the Covid Monitoring Unit, Ronald Chapman, yesterday reported that some small businesses in and around The City were closed last night based on intelligence from the public.

    Members of the unit visited the area near the Fairchild Street terminal known as “Vincy Town”, then moved to nearby Nelson Street, where a number of people had gathered and were eating, drinking and liming.

    The Deputy Chief Environmental Health Officer said many of the patrons gathered were not wearing masks and were in close proximity to each other.

    Chapman said his unit had received several calls from Barbadians reporting breaches of the country’s public health protocols in recent days, but special mention had been made of those two areas. (BA)

    Not your buddies by any chance Kammie?

    If so, another Blue Area, Southern Corridor.

    If the virus is coming through the pipes underground the efforts of the Flying Squad are to no avail … except perhaps shutting down the business.

    So patrons will go elsewhere.

    Lockdowns on the horizon?

  • Now that the reality of the many negative fall outs the virus has unleashed on Barbados and the households
    What benefits has Barbados gain by govt letting tourist from hot bed cities enter the country
    The realities of death and high infections are so out of controlled which begs the question would Barbados economy ever rebound from what the virus has unleashed physically emotionally and socially on the lives of the people as well as the economy
    There are many social economic problems that the vaccine cannot fix or help
    There the areas where employment would continue to soar as business closed
    There is the stress which can lead to mental health problems even with vaccinated because people cannot find jobs or the stress of having to deal with daily problems worsen
    How about the children whose lack of necessary interacting with others which is necessary to social growth creates a morbid situation of isolation
    The problems that Covid has embedded in the social norms would long term impact society as people way of life changes and aggression and lack of social behaviour creates
    abnormalities due to social distancing

    You are right, it is possible the death at the Winston Scott Polyclinic may not have been due to COVID.

    But it doesn’t change the fact of what happened at the QEH or the Geriatric Hospital.

    Nor does it change the fact that the MOH says the majority of cases are in the Southern Corridor.

    Possibly one of the many cases I have used may or may not have been due to COVID.

  • Make jab a must!

    BCCI wants mandatory vaccines for front-line workers
    ADD THE Barbados Chamber of Commerce and Industry (BCCI) to the list of organisations calling on Government to make vaccines mandatory for all front-line workers.
    BCCI president Anthony Branker also wants an urgent meeting of the Social Partnership so a way forward can be found to deal with the ongoing third wave of the COVID-19 virus.
    His call came a few hours after six more COVID-19related deaths were reported by public health authorities yesterday.
    In a statement, Branker said the executive council of the BCCI, which represents the voice of over 240 members from all sectors of business on the island, met recently and with one voice expressed concern about the lack of action by Government on the escalating COVID-19 cases and the impact this was having on their businesses and society in general.
    “The BCCI is calling on the Government of Barbados to get back to the negotiation table of the Social Partnership, where labour, Government and the private sector can carve out a sustainable future for all Barbadians, COVID-19 or no COVID-19,” Branker said.
    The businessman said the BCCI agreed at the last Social Partnership meeting six weeks ago to encourage and educate its members on the benefits of vaccination against the virus.
    “However, in light of the current deleterious situation, the BCCI adds its voice of support to the Barbados Private Sector Association for a vaccine mandate in the form of a risk-based approach to mandatory vaccination that will see all front-line workers vaccinated or tested frequently for COVID-19.”
    Time for decision
    Yesterday, the Barbados Hotel & Tourism Association (BHTA), which represents more than 70 hotels and
    accommodation properties, in a whole page ad in the SUNDAY SUN, called on Government to make vaccines mandatory for all workers in the hospitality industry.
    Branker said the time had come for a decision to be made.
    “As president of the BCCI, I must now ask, how many more? How many more potential visitors to our island will have to cancel their planned trip? How many more cruise line calls need to be cancelled? How many more doctors and nurses must reach their breaking point?”
    He also said Barbadians were being seriously affected by mental health issues associated with COVID-19 fatigue, and the children remained away from the classroom.
    “How many more of our children must be left behind because of the online learning? How many more businesses must be interrupted or closed? How many more jobs must be lost? How many more Barbadians have to die?” he queried.
    When contacted, general secretary of the Congress of Trade Unions and Staff Associations of Barbados, Dennis De Peiza, said he would not comment on the BHTA’s call for mandatory vaccines in the tourism industry, but did reveal the issue of mandatory vaccines would be the main item on the agenda tomorrow during a special meeting of their occupational safety and health division.

    #COVIDDispatch – Social worker says changes needed in approach to COVID-19 victims – by Barbados Today October 11, 2021
    Who feels it knows it. That’s how Pamela Jones-Goodridge sums up her life-changing COVID-19 experience.

    Speaking to COVID Dispatch from home isolation, Jones-Goodridge said the seven days she spent in an isolation facility have altered the way she performs her day-to-day duties as a clinical social worker.

    Always extremely careful to follow the protocols, it came as a complete shock when she contracted the virus.

    Jones-Goodridge said: “It will always remain a mystery to me because I pride myself on being pretty safe in terms of following the protocols. Monday night, I felt like a tickling in the back of my throat and I ignored it. I came home the Tuesday night, took a shower, went to bed and I woke up in the early hours of Wednesday morning with chills.”

    But again, she brushed off the symptoms and reasoned that it was because she had been sleeping directly under a fan. However, things took a turn for the worst in the morning.

    “I took my temperature and I realized that it was high, and I said, ‘well that is odd’ so I took it a half-hour later and then 15 minutes after; it was still high. By then, I started to feel pain in my eyes and in my upper nasal cavity, but it didn’t feel like a headache, it just felt like sinus pressure,” she explained.

    Jones-Goodridge said she called her doctor and was directed to get a COVID-19 test. She was given some Zyrtec and told to get some rest until the results came in.

    She recalls getting the dreaded email at 4:30 on Thursday morning. It was at that point that she began to panic, not for herself initially but for all her close contacts who she said had underlying health challenges and some of whom were only partially vaccinated.

    However, after bringing her anxiety under control, the clinical social worker got a first-hand view of the problems in the process and how they can be fixed. She now believes that Government is using the wrong people to do the COVID-19 outreach.

    Jones-Goodridge said: “When you bring a celebrity that, in the average Barbadian’s mind, you and I are miles apart in our experiences, in our outlook on life, the average Barbadian finds it hard to relate to that person. So that celebrity or that doctor or the politician telling persons you should take the vaccine because it will save your life amounts to nothing unless they can safely say ‘I am recommending you to take the vaccine because I know what it is to walk a mile in your shoes.”

    “Up until last week Thursday, I was like any one of those celebrities. I have been counselling a lot of people that have been positive that have been in facilities and up to that point I was very far removed from them and their situation and their experience until I found myself one of them. One of the things that I also realised when I was there was what I thought I was doing and how effective I thought I was being when I was counselling persons, I really wasn’t,” she reflected, noting that her seven days at the isolation centre at Blackman and Gollop Primary School caused her to reflect on her approach.

    Jones-Goodridge said that one of the major shortfalls throughout the whole process was the lack of information which was causing many people anxiety.

    113 are in isolation as at 7 a.m. today.
    The tertiary facility at Harrison Point is being refitted with oxygen machines so it looks more like a secondary facility.
    There is an increase in the number of people quarantining at home.
    This had to be rolled out because of the increasing number of cases.
    The Ministry of Health is trying to move faster in removing people from home who need to go into isolation facilities.
    The roll-out of home isolation has not been perfect.
    We are experiencing delays in getting people out of home isolation to the isolation facilities for assessment.
    We expect in two or three days to be able to get to a point, where within 48 hours, we will be able to do everything.

    We do not feel mandating vaccines will work.
    We do not feel lockdowns will work and will lead to loss of jobs, closure of businesses.
    We need to start the process of safe zones.
    We need to have places where people are either vaccinated or recently tested.
    The Ministry of Health will lead the process of rolling out guidance notes in bite-sized chunks to make it manageable and sustainable.
    People will be tested based on risk.
    High risk: ICUs, A&E, urgent care facilities, isolation facilities, swabbing centres, nursing homes and outpatient clinics.
    Unvaccinated people in these high-risk areas will have to be tested once a week.
    Vaccinated people will have a less frequent regime of testing.
    Government will pay for the tests in public sector.
    The Prime Minister has written BAMP, Nurses Association and trade unions to indicate this will be done.
    After healthcare workers, there will be a guidance note for frontline workers, then tourism and hospitality workers, then workers in the education sector.
    We will meet with the business community and labour unions to see how we can create safe zones for patrons.
    60 per cent of the eligible population (people 12 and older) have already said we accept the responsibility to protect ourselves.
    142 543 people have taken a first jab up to 5 p.m. today.
    This country has remained stable because the majority of Barbados has done the right thing.
    I have confidence in our people, and they have proven us right.
    We are not doing incentives for people to take vaccines because Government has paid the bills for building the facilities, hired the staff, got the vaccines and done everything we had to do.
    7 000 single dose vaccines of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccines will be coming at 10 a.m. on Tuesday from Guyana
    Government is still waiting on 14 000 Pfizer doses purchased through COVAX.

    Remember it was 300 plus a few days ago!!

    Cases dropping?

    What caused the drop

    Or just a random variable over which there is no control?

    Will it go up tomorrow or continue down?

    The problem is no one has gone back to first principles and analysed the problem.

    They are playing with numbers.

    I would argue the very randomness of nature regardless of protocols speaks volumes.

    I could make a good case for predicting it will continue to fall except that we have a major weather system on our doorstep.

    Looking at Dominica and Grenada It may very well be the cases will continue to fall.

    But I would be optimistic.

    If that happens I would argue that it meant the contamination in the water is finite and has passed for the moment.

    But then I would expect it to rise if we were to get alot of rain!!

    Booster mandates will be required to ensure the vaccinated remain “safe” enough to be permitted entry to “safe” zones and avoid breakthrough infections which will render the “safe” zones unsafe for both the vaccinated and unvaccinated.

    BARBADOS WILL SOON be introducing safe zones, where vaccinated people can work, socialise and even entertain in an environment in which they are less likely to be infected with the COVID-19 virus.
    This was revealed in a national address last night by Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley, who said that would be the best way forward in the absence of a mandatory vaccination policy for the country.
    In a 40-minute speech from her official residence at Ilaro Court, Mottley said her Government had no intention of forcing people to put things into their bodies which they did not want to but preferred instead to find a balanced way of protecting the health of the country.
    “This is a difficult time for our nation, and our health system and our professionals have been under severe strain,” she said. “We have to see where we can fill the gaps. We have to find balance in what we do. We have a duty to create a safe space. People have to understand there will be consequences to the choices they make.”
    She explained that the safe zones, to be instituted in the coming weeks by the Ministry of Health and established in a priority framework, with the first guidance notes to be issued this week, was the most realistic option in finding such balance.
    “We have to start the safe zones, where we have places where people are either vaccinated or recently tested. At the end of the day, what matters is that you are safe and not in a position to put people at risk. So if you are not prepared to take the vaccine, then you would have to be prepared to be tested to assure the rest of us that as we mix at work or at places of entertainment or worship or at restaurants, that there must be a safe place.”
    The Prime Minister said 142 000 Barbadians had been vaccinated, just under 60 per cent of the eligible population, and now was the perfect time to introduce the safe zones.
    She said when the country does reach 70 per cent of eligible people in the population being inoculated, she would immediately review the current restrictions, including the 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily curfew.
    High-risk areas
    “We have to do this in a sustainable way, so we will test people based on risk,” she said about the proposed safe zones, noting that the Accident & Emergency Department of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, swabbing centres, medical and surgical intensive care units, isolation facilities, nursing homes
    and outpatients clinics would be the first facilities entered into by the Ministry of Health to conduct testing.
    “Unvaccinated people in these high-risk areas would have to be tested at least once a week, or those who are living at home but depending on caregivers or generally sick,” she added.
    All testing in Government facilities will be paid for by the Government, and all workers in health care institutions will have priority testing.
    “If you are not going to mandate vaccines, you have to mandate safe environments, and that is what this Government is doing,” said Mottley.
    In response to a question from the media, she said she fully expected the country’s major sector, tourism, to have safe zones instituted after the vulnerable and front-line workers are taken care of, and before December 1.
    Workers in the education sector will also be tested to create safe zones when face-to-face classes do resume in Barbados.
    “Persons who are vaccinated will have a less frequent regime as the reality is they are less likely to catch it (COVID-19) and, if they do catch it, are less likely to be contagious,” the Prime Minister said.
    She said Ministry of Health officials would also be meeting with stakeholders in various sectors such as sporting associations, the entertainment industry and religious groups to figure out how best safe zones could be implemented.
    The Prime Minister added that owners of businesses in the restaurant and entertainment industry would also have the freedom to provide rapid antigen testing for patrons in an effort to create safe zones as well.
    In terms of her call last month to have 10 000 first doses of vaccines administered per week for five weeks, the Prime Minister said while the target had not been achieved, from September 1 up to yesterday, 30 482 people had received first jabs.

  • I am now finally satisfied with the current Corona policy. The sharply rising infection figures guarantee the natural immunisation of the population. However, we should still drive up the numbers here. The day of the proclamation of the republic would be a great opportunity to let our naïve native masks dance and become naturally immunised.

    This measure is combined with a quasi-vaccination duty for special professions. Very good.

    I would, however, have one suggestion for change: we should test much less. Fewer tests mean fewer official Corona cases. That would be immensely helpful in attracting more tourists to Barbados.

That is my secondary (and partially nefarious) intention behind my vaccine \ PCR test mandate. A la the flu, I don’t predict the need for lifelong jabs for COVID-19. Since vaccines and boosters offers some protection against subsequent strains my hope is that “jabs” being the mainstream will wane after 12- 24 months. By then the accumulation of people with vaccine and naturally acquired immunity would further mute the virus with herd immunity

  • Has anyone looked at the numbers out of Brazil and correlated the surges in Existing Cases to the almost monthly floods?

    All we have to do is wait for the rain to stop!!!

    But if we want to eradicate the virus we need to find which water source(s) are periodically contaminated and shut it (them) down.

    Since the lower elevations of the Christ Church Dome (geological lingo) is where the most cases are found and the upper elevations appear to be relatively free, then it is through the reservoirs at the lower elevations that the virus is spread in the water.

    We can eliminate Fort George and its sources, probably Belle and New Market.

    We are then left with Codrington and the deSal plant.

    Since Codrington has a healthy Zone 1 protection like Belle and New Market there is only one source left to investigate, the deSal Plant.

    It is curious that Israel with 55% of its water from desal is in the trouble it is and on to Booster #4.

    If it is the desal plant shut it down until the process through which it produces contaminated water can be understood.

    467 fully-vaccinated people die from Covid-19 since start of Portugal’s vaccination process
    By Natasha Donn -9th October 2021

    “Since the start of the vaccination process in this country, 467 people who were totally vaccinated against the new coronavirus have died, shows a report published on Friday on ‘red lines’ by the national institute of health Dr Ricardo Jorge (INSA). In spite of this, according to the document, the risk of death through Covid infection is two to four times less in people with complete vaccination”.

    This is the opening paragraph of a report in ECO online, which goes on to show the latter assertion on questionable ground.

    For example, of those 467 deaths, 126 occurred in September, when the fully-vaccinated, says ECO, was equivalent to 58% of the total number of deaths.

    “This tranche is superior to the people who died with vaccination incomplete (13 deaths, 6%) and people whose vaccination status was unknown (4), says the report. In other words, more vaccinated people died than non-vaccinated”.

    This can easily be explained by the fact that the vaccines lose efficacy over time (click here), particularly in the elderly (click here) – and Portugal has now reached a point where 85% of the country is fully-vaccinated, so there is a far higher risk of people dying (of anything) being fully-vaccinated than non-vaccinated.

    But what this report ties into is studies being undertaken in the wider sphere, which are showing how high levels of vaccination don’t seem to be protecting populations from incidences of Covid-19. Again, this isn’t ‘a shock’: it has been clear for months that the vaccine does not stop transmission or infection. But a study published only 10 days ago actually cites Portugal as being a clear example of how ‘high levels of vaccination’ are not simply not effective against incidence, they seem to be linked to it.
