151 active COVID-19 cases currently in the territory

Despite what appeared to be a decline in the number of COVID-19 cases in the territory in recent months, the Acting Chief Medical Officer (CMO), Dr Ronald Georges is urging residents to be vigilant as there are currently 151 active cases of the virus in the territory.

However, the Acting CMO noted most of the persons are experiencing mild symptoms. He added that six persons were admitted to the Dr D Orlando Smith Hospital but not as a direct result of COVID-19.

Dr Georges reminded people who tested positive for COVID-19 to self-isolate for a period of 10 days. He also said people can resume normal activities if they test negative by rapid test seven days after onset of symptoms or on completion of 10 days of isolation without a COVID-19 test.

“Persons who have been exposed to a positive case meaning a mask-less contact for at least 15 minutes or who think that they have been exposed to a positive case of COVID-19 should ensure that they wear a well-fitted mask when around others.” Dr Georges advised.

The Acting Chief Medical Officer further stated that COVID-19 positive persons should also avoid contact with vulnerable persons for 10 to 14 days, conduct a COVID-19 test five to seven days after the exposure, and continue to monitor themselves for 10 to 14 days. After that time has elapsed, they can go back to normal precautions.

Dr Georges is urging the community to remain vigilant and seek to self-isolate and be tested if they are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19 including fever, aches, cough, or nasal symptoms.

Persons experiencing more severe symptoms or who may be vulnerable should seek medical attention.

    • We were warned says:

      The UK government admits that vaccines have damaged the natural immune system of those who have been double-vaccinated. The UK government has admitted that once you have been double-vaccinated, you will never again be able to acquire full natural immunity to Covid variants – or possibly any other virus. So let’s watch the “real” pandemic begin now! In its Week 42 “COVID-19 Vaccine Surveillance Report”, the UK Department of Health admits on page 23 that “N antibody levels appear to be lower in people who become infected after two doses of vaccination”. It goes on to say that this drop in antibodies is essentially permanent. What does this mean? We know that vaccines do not prevent infection or transmission of the virus (indeed, the report elsewhere shows that vaccinated adults are now much more likely to be infected than unvaccinated ones). The British now find that the vaccine interferes with the body’s ability to make antibodies after infection not only against the spike protein but also against other parts of the virus. In particular, vaccinated people do not appear to form antibodies against the nucleocapsid protein, the envelope of the virus, which is a crucial part of the response in unvaccinated people. In the long term, the vaccinated are far more susceptible to any mutations in the spike protein, even if they have already been infected and cured once or more. The unvaccinated, on the other hand, will gain lasting, if not permanent, immunity to all strains of the alleged virus after being naturally infected with it even once.

      The first insurance companies are backing down because a huge wave of claims is coming their way. Anthony Fauci confirms that the PCR test cannot detect live viruses. Anthony Fauci confirms that neither the antigen test nor the PCR test can tell us whether someone is contagious or not!!! This invalidates all the foundations of the so-called pandemic. The PCR test was the only indication of a pandemic. Without PCR-TEST no pandemic For all the press workers, doctors, lawyers, prosecutors etc. THIS is the final key, the ultimate proof that the measures must all be lifted immediately must be PLEASE SHARE” Please copy and paste this in as many comments as you can do not try and post this on your main Facebook page as it will be taken down by Facebook let’s spread the word
