  1. @ Tanto Tanto:- all well and good but a so called nation with about 200 or so people with so much Covid infected persons, thats dangerous; we are a people who love a cacanal and we have a minister in government who knows this and is cashing in on that, instead of seeing after a run-down constituency with bad roads, ugly foux-A-Chaux, Bannan etc. enjoy it folks, keep jumping, dancing, singing and lets hope every stomach is full.

  2. When will we ever get a deeper examination of the data.
    1. What percentage of the positives are recurrent infections?
    2. How many of the positives are vaccinated as opposed to unvaccinated?
    3. How many of the hospitalized had underlying conditions?
    4. What is the most common underlying condition amongst the hospitalized, if there is?
    5. What is the age range of the people hospitalized?
    6. What is the age range of the persons having positive covid tests? has there been a change in the age groups being most affected?

    This is not people’s business we are sharing, but information to assist in making better public health policy. Answering these types of questions and presenting them to the public enures people understand the pattern of infections and are better able to modify their behaviour to counteract the spread of infections and lessen negative health outcomes from infection.

    These generalized measures do not capture the public attention as it is so repetative and standard.

    What treatments have been shown to work for outpatient settings inn our population?

    We are two years in and this is the only data being shared regularly, which says nothing? Does it give the weekly or monthly infection rate? No.

    Please let us do better in disseminating information for the graeter good of the public

  3. Its hardly a week since carnival and there’s 95 new cases of Covid – and 6 suspected cases of Monkeypox; what next, no more tourists? Just pray for Gods’ mercy.
