Nine deaths in about 21 days of which 7 is direct from covid-19. Isn’t that something to worry about? To rub salt in the heart of those in grief, they are EXCITED to announce the date of carnival for 2023. How can anyone protect the elderly? Are the elderly homes a burden to this administration, hence they want to get rid of the elderly? It appears that way.
I wonder how many they were before August 26th.
right now we putting our emphasis on the wrong direction we need to deliver speedy health care protection and with a passion too… let covid be a normal flue syndrome and life otherwise is more important
@Desmond – conspiracy theorist – you are the liar, not the govt health departments of the entire world! Such ignorance. I do not live on island now, but I recall same ridiculous theories about Chikungunyah when that was running wild through the Caribbean and Southern States of the US. It seems Covid has become a disease which kills mostly vulnerable people – the elderly and those with disabilities and compromised immunity. Removing mask mandates and all the other basic protocols, as most of the world has done, due to economics or political reasons, will see many more cases of Covid which long term compromises the health of even healthy people who have had only mild symptoms. And there will be many more deaths. People are in denial, just because they are tired of it, but it doesnt mean it is over. far from it…
Please tell us whether any of the persons who died were either fully vaccinated or partly vaccinated PLEASE.
ok @con stupidity….remain on the big bang rock where you are
Y’all still on that marjee. Seriously! Life expectancy is 78 and 76 here. All but one of those people is within that range. Nothing to see here. BTW what’s the jook status of those people. That’s what I’d like to know.
Desmond what medical or scientific proof do you have to back your claim.
I want to know if elderly people do not die at all. And yes I’m in support of all mandates being removed because it was a farce to begin with. All of a sudden it has been announced that the pandemic is over but covid cases and deaths are still being reported. Don’t the elderly and other people die from other diseases and causes as well? Why isn’t it being reported how many die from AIDS, TB, the flu, COPD etc., with the same fervour and regularity? It is to instill unfounded fear in people. Why isn’t reported the numbers suffering from adverse effects or those who have died as a result of taking those vaccines? Why have some countries suddenly dropped mandates previously required to enter? Yet they say covid is still with us? Well? Won’t it always be? Hasn’t it always been? Much like the common cold, flu etc?
STOP MASK MANDATES IN THE SCHOOLS!! It’s ridiculous. Children are the least likely to get and die from covid yet they have children muzzled up still like pets. It needs to be done away with.
