Hello Musical Doc,

Shakes will have to confirm this.


I cant confirm...HOWEVER, it is possible because I was shown the 3k figure..facepalm



When deaths become just stats and figures...
Perhaps its time for something like nyt's 1000 names project.
(May.. simpler times...)

As a nation, we have become desensitized. Maybe even shellshocked.
Sounds like a good idea to humanize the stats.

Except we are not privy to that information.
We don't even know their age or general location - far less their names

Hello redmanjp,

Regardless of location, Trinis are NOT wearing masks properly, NOT social distancing, inconsistent with sanitizing, attending private gatherings, and most most importantly breaching quarantine orders.


In a nutshell, the cases are coming from the irresponsible, negligent, ignorant, unwilling and careless citizens of T&T combined with mismanagement from the Govt of T&T.


Private property totally legal


i seem to recall the PM saying if u under quarantine and live in an apartment u are confined to that apartment only and can't for instance walk about the compound- so perhaps they should extend the regulations for gatherings to 'common areas' in private communities

Some cold hard facts gonna come out now. I knew one of the other persons who died today. He was from S/Grande and according to the family and the doctors we know.....there were no spaces in ICU for him. He could not get a ventilator and as a result he was given high flow oxygen. Well we saw the end result of that.

Tomorrow is the funeral for my friend's dad and up to now he has not even seen a pic of his father. He asked and was denied. He signed for a body and dont know if that's his father. Our ship is sinking folks....

Id be back shortly

The mere fact that 3 people died in this release and not even a comment in the last 30 minutes here, or even on fb, shows how desensitized we have become/are becoming to this whole situation.

Exactly the Gov'ts plan.

We need names, pictures and their comorbities published. That will bring it home to us. Right now most of us can't relate to the victims.

But you might be right, our government is handling Covid backwards.

Seems like it's not only old people anymore dying.

I also checked on social media, fb twitter etc
Not a single mention. It's like everyone is completely desensitized to the situation. I guess only when it hits home people will care.

But the minister of health say we have icu space in caura, arima, and couva. But is strange that there are NEVER more than 6 people in icu at a given time. Even with 4 people dying today how much you want to bet in tomorrow release there would "still" be 5 or 6 people in icu.

A lot of large business places taking records for contact tracing.
Which is useless at this stage of spread.

the part about this is... the gov't doesn't seem to be contact tracing anymore. You don't hear any more stories about so and so being closed for sanitation. All that phone number and name being recorded... no point anymore. It already everywhere.

Maybe the newspaper can run a article when the COVID19 death rate surpass the murder rate. But put the article in a small print somewhere on page 9, so the worker bees continue happily working while people continue dying off.

At the MOH conference yesterday they said it even more important now so as to prevent the outbreak from moving into extremely rapid spread so they still doing it. They just not specifying how many cases are contacts and how many are pending investigation.

I doh know why they haven't considered contact tracing apps on cell phones yet. That could eliminate all the unknown origin cases.

that is why i was perturbed. i admired the fore thinking of the management, one of the owners attended me, and she was really courteous. they putting all that effort and resources into doing something very worthwhile. but the govt all but give up. and they dont see that.

At that level of spread half those worker bees in quarantine or even Covid positive. Tell me businesses won't be affected at that point.
