BU Covid Dash – Safe Zones Long Talk

In recent months the developed world has forged ahead with implementing measures to ensure citizens get on with the business of living, albeit not at pre-Covid 19 level. We watch our TVs daily and marvel at the sight of thousands of spectators crammed into sports stadia, persons reporting to work, travelling on business, leisure and other ‘getting back to normal’ activities.

Regrettably Barbados continues to be a country divided on how mirror what is happening in the developed world. The medical association (BAMP), teachers associations, political parties and not to forget the idiots.

It is interesting to note head of the BCCI Tricia Tannis has thrown support behind the safe zone concept. Head of the BAMP confirmed at the recent press briefing although vaccinated and unvaccinated persons can spread the virus, unvaccinated do it more efficiently. With Christmas shopping window about to open in a couple weeks and tourist winter seasons open, the shortening of the curfew period has not come as a surprise. What we will see in the weeks to come, if government continues to waffle on the implementation of safe zones the private sector will take the initiative to implement.

We need to ignite commercial activity in the country. The time to stop dithering is with us.

  • I see Grenada is holding at 0 cases again yesterday.

    So long as no one takes it there for it to spread and so long as the sampling picked up all, the longer the new cases remain at 0 the closer Grenada will come to claiming it is COVID free.

    Not bad.

  • Dominica down at 38 cases yesterday, we continue to fall and are at 284.

    Antigua is down to 7 new cases yesterday, 7 day average at 4 cases.

    Not quite COVID free but nearly there.

    St. Kitts at the same 7 day average as Antiga.

    Martinique 7 day average at 25 and Guadeloupe at 26.

    We may be 10X greater but at least we are falling as the contamination works itself out of our water system..

    We probably won’t be down to single digit cases till early February, but we can hope it is a bit earlier.

  • Isolation breakers
    Concern over threat posed by culprits
    THE COVID MONITORING UNIT and law enforcement are being called in several times to deal with people wantonly breaching COVID-19 home isolation restrictions.
    Consultant manager of the home isolation programme, Dr Ayanna Grandison said yesterday the culprits, most of whom were asymptomatic, were putting the country at risk of greater spread of the viral illness.
    She explained that while most of the 7 512 people (up to Tuesday) in COVID-19 home isolation were adhering to confinement regulations, there were some bad actors bent on abusing the programme which is just over a month old and is dependent on a combination of digital monitoring and good faith.
    She was speaking at a virtual press briefing hosted by COVID-19 Public Advisor David Ellis.
    Only last week, Attorney General Dale Marshall bemoaned the practice of people in home isolation moving around the island, for whatever reason.
    “That is not only irresponsible, it is absolutely unlawful,” he said then, adding that where found, such lawbreakers would be dealt with.
    Grandison told the media that though the numbers were not astronomical, they were enough to cause concern.
    ‘There are some persons who are grossly abusing the powers that are there and will go about, whether they want to continue to visit their consorts or they want to just continue with life as normal. We generally tend to see that among persons who are feeling well, this number has not been a very large one – it has been less than 50. Those persons have been brought to the attention of the COVID-19 Monitoring Unit. They performed their investigations with an escalation as needed to the Royal Barbados Police Force for further action.”
    Breach protocols
    She added that in some cases, people attempting to breach protocols were considered a “flight risk” and steps were taken to further restrict their movements by placing them in isolation facilities.
    “There are some persons
    who we know who have breached and we intervened immediately. Based on the fact that they were considered to be a flight risk, we would place those persons in mandatory quarantine because it is a public health situation that we are dealing with.
    “We are in the middle of a pandemic and certainly the challenge of spreading the virus is one of our greatest concerns. So if we have persons who are walking around and who are completely disregarding the protocols, our first method of containment is to further restrict the movement of that person, putting [the individual] in an isolation or quarantine facility, depending on where they come in on the spectrum. We would then continue with the investigation as needed.”
    However, the consultant manager pointed out that not all breaches were wilful acts, as in some cases people panicked when they ran out of food or other essential items.
    “The majority of persons who are designated green or safe to stay at home, do stay at home and they comply. However, we do always have those persons that go counter to the rules, but it is not always that our investigations reveal these persons intended or had poor reason for breaching isolation,” said Grandison.
    “Sometimes persons may attempt to breach isolation for something as simple as food, not knowing where to turn to. These persons sometimes panic and seek to go and get food. We have put measures in place to partner with the Ministry of People Empowerment to provide food hampers to persons we have identified as needing that social support.”

  • John;

    Some Internet homework for you as you have proven how adept you are at doing partial internet searches and are now ready for more indepth probative research.

    Elucidate and identify ALL the significant currently known PATHWAYS of the Covid-19 virus from infection of a human host in one country to infection of another human host in another country. Pay special attention to water (in its various forms) as a pathway by showing how the virus enters and leaves that pathway, identifying the numerous environmental factors that can significantly reduce or increase transmission or infectivity of the virus.

    This assignment should be handed into the BU rumshop by 18th January 2022.

  • CDC Moves The Goalposts Says Report
    By Alex Miller -November 14, 2021
    Facebook Twitter Pinterest
    A change from the CDC has caught everyones attention and has scientists concerned.
    The Biden run CDC has decided to no longer attempt to achieve herd immunity. That’s when so many people are immune to a disease that it runs out of hosts to cause an outbreak. The reason why the CDC was highlighted in a Los Angeles Times report that we are going to quote below for the sake of the “fact-checkers.” Keep in mind before you read the passage below Biden just imposed a vaccine mandate on millions of Americans, claiming this is the only way to get back to normal.

    None[vaccines] has proved reliable at blocking transmission of the virus, Jones noted. Recent evidence has also made clear that the immunity provided by vaccines can wane in a matter of months. The result is that even if vaccination were universal, the coronavirus would probably continue to spread. So, the CDC is admitting even if everyone in the country was vaccinated, the virus wouldn’t stop spreading.

    Dr. Oliver Brooks, a member of the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices is not happy and is worried about the change. Jones believe that people will be less “motivated to get vaccinated.” There is one factor that the Los Angeles Times left out that turns the whole conversation upside down. In response to a Freedom of Information Request from an attorney the CDC admitted they have no record of an unvaccinated person spreading COVID after they recovered from getting the virus. Yes, you read that correctly, they have nothing. There may be a way to herd immunity just not by the definition used by the CDC and therein has been one of the problems, the constant changing of definitions.

    Grenada and Dominica have good water supplies, don’t need much vaccination to prevent spread.

    We are not too bad, but not nearly as good as those two.

    Floods upset the equilibrium.

    Vaccinations really do not work if the vaccinated are using contaminated water.

    Avoid contaminated water and you are better off without the vaccination.

    100% vaccination in a country is meaningless as far as spread is concerned if the water is contaminated.
