No more positives in latest COVID-19 results

Governor Martyn Roper

(CNS): All of the 203 COVID-19 test results reported by Chief Medical Officer Dr John Lee Wednesday evening were negative, as Cayman appears to still be on track to beat the virus, even though test numbers are falling. Currently there are just two active cases, both of which are asymptomatic patients, one of which was picked up via the community screening and the other was a returning traveller.

These are the only two case of the virus that have been picked up over the last two weeks out of 3,053 tests conducted by public health officials since 1 July. In total 27,206 tests have been carried out here since testing began in March and 203 patients have tested positive. Currently 141 people are in isolation, either in government quarantine facilities or isolating at home.

Cayman is expected to see even more restrictions lifted this coming weekend as the efforts to curtail the spread of the virus have been successful. In his daily Facebook post yesterday, Governor Martyn Roper said Cayman was “in a very comfortable position”.

In addition to the lockdown, the massive test and trace programme, social distancing and mask wearing have played a part in getting Cayman to this place. In light of the controversies that continue around mask wearing, especially in the United States, where their use has become a political issues, Roper has urged people here to continue wearing them.

“In Cayman we have taken a clear and consistent position that you should wear masks or face coverings in public places,” he said. “Wearing masks, adopting social distancing and basic hygiene protects us individually and others in our community. The virus will be with us for the foreseeable future. These good habits reduce risk considerably.”

    Open up flights to Canada. They’ve done a great job and have very low numbers.

    Perhaps be selective about allowing flights from other countries, too.

    But seriously; given what’s happening in the U.S. (Florida especially), I just can’t fathom opening the borders up and saying “Come on in!” to anyone from America right now. That would be such a huge risk that isn’t worth taking.

      A single Canadian with the virus would be just as dangerous as an American, a Brit, or an Italian with the virus. It ain’t worth the risk. If someone truly wants or needs to come here they can, through quarantine!

    People who wear a mask all day are at risk of bacterial infection of airways. ALL DAY is the key word here, not on occasional visit to a grocery store or a doctor.

    Unless employees who are required to wear a face mask all day long change it every 2-3 hours, common sense tells it is an unsafe practice.

    To all those saying ‘we can’t open the borders without a vaccine’, I get that – but how long are you willing to wait? It could take a year, 5 years 10 years, maybe it will never happen. Scientists have been working on finding a vaccine for the common cold and the flu (which are also coronaviruses) for decades. A vaccine for HIV has not been developed after 35 years of research. Remember arriving at a vaccine is the first step, after that billions have to be distributed. So….how long are you willing to wait?

      It’s only been a few months and we’re doing great relative to the horror shows elsewhere. What would be the acceptable number of dead people to sacrifice to accommodate your desire for increased mobility? How many thousands of permanent medical injury patients would be worthwhile for you? All you have to do is contact Travel Time to go off and participate in the pandemic yourself, if you want to. Nobody is stopping you.

      yep, that’s exactly the problem. However, those on the other side think we should open right now simply to serve tourism and real estate, but we don’t really have to right now, we can wait a while, we can probably wait another year, so why not? to rush to open is nonsensical and dangerous when there’s no valid reason, the majority in Cayman do not live and die by tourism, and most real estate sold to overseas investors is still being sold online!! So let’s wait a while, that’s all, why not?

      One of the causes of the common cold can be a coronavirus, along with rhinoviruses, adenoviruses, and others.

      The seasonal flu is not a coronavirus, but an influenza. Modern medicine has managed to whip a few viruses, such as smallpox.

      The thing is that Covid-19 is a new virus, and medical/health care research is finding out new things about it all the time. There may be more than one and possibly several waves of it. Many countries have done very well with their response to the virus. Just imagine if every nation/territory did the same as we’ve done here and actually controlled the thing?

      We may have to wait a very long time; when this virus emerged, the world changed, and is still changing.

      Maybe we’ll be fortunate and the virus will attenuate. Right now, in other countries, efforts to “get back to normal” is getting people killed.

    Time to open the borders? – NO

    From CNN

    Miami hospitals have reached 95% capacity due to the growing Covid-19 pandemic, the city’s mayor, Francis Suarez, told reporters Thursday.

    The percentage of positive cases is growing at a smaller rate, Suarez said.

    The highest category of people who are getting infected are people between the ages of 18 and 34, who represent 27% of the population, Suarez said.

    “They are going back to the home and infecting everybody in the household,” according to Suarez.

    From the surveys received by the city “33.7% are reporting they are getting infected by a family member,” Suarez said, emphasizing the importance of sanitizing measures at home.

    From the Guardian this morning

    ‘Florida sets another single-day record of coronavirus deaths

    In the US, Florida has once again broken its single-day record of coronavirus deaths, as the state struggles to get the virus under control.

    Florida health officials announced 156 residents died of coronavirus yesterday, breaking the record of 132 deaths reported on Tuesday morning.

    The new figure brings the total number of coronavirus deaths in Florida to 4,677. The state has also confirmed more than 315,000 cases.’

    And here we go again, people will clamor for the borders to reopen. It’s unbelievable that groups in tourism and real estate development are pushing so hard for tourism and long term residents to be allowed back in. This virus is real, just because government has been so successful doesn’t mean it can’t spread rapidly once borders open. It will. And our community has so many vulnerable persons (old/overweight/ Diabetes, etc) that it’s insanity to risk the borders without quarantine simply to satisfy the needs of Dart and his few hotels or whatever

    Until a vaccine, unless you quarantine for 14 days, please do not open borders

    • Anon says:

      Absolutely correct. The Cayman shutdown has preserved a pristine, completely vulnerable population, subject to geometric rates of deadly infection if just one infected person enters Cayman. Meanwhile, the virus is basically over in the USA northeast, and will be over in the American South in about a month. That is how epidemics work unless you want to exist in an isolated backwater for the foreseeable future.

      • Orlando Bob says:

        7:51, Can assure you that with the current political leadership in the American South the virus will not be over in a month there. More like a year with the current group of idiot Governors denying reality and following the gospel according to Trump.

        You are obviously one of those morons who is more about money than the value of life and health. Many have died from this virus and are continuing to do so, but fools like you would rather ignore the fact this this virus is NOT like the flu and we do NOT know enough about it.

      You’re going to find loads of genius epidemiologists replying to you here telling you how nuts you are and how cayman is doomed. I agree with you to an extent although keeping borders closed for ever clearly isn’t an option.

      A lot of people here dont seem to think its a big deal this virus, bless them. once the virus takes hold here, not only will they change their mind, but they’ll take off the blinkers and realize that its not just covid patients that will suffer…it’s everyone. Our ICU beds full, our doctors over burdened, who treats the accidents? The other illnesses? Etc. The knock on effects are immense. this whole thing about ‘only’ 1 or 5% or whatever death rate is insane ramblings of the self entitled. The virus will take the health system down.
      Until there is a vaccine.

      As a person that has travel thought this pandemic and have been tested almost weekly I can say without doubt pretesting works and ongoing monitoring and testing after arrival.

      It stoped me spreading it when I had it…….AND yes it was nothing more than a light flu.. if that!

          You missed my point.
          Pre test and then test on arrival and monitor is a way forward. 1% dead is a stretch try 0.2% and opening to home owners, business traveler is needed quicker than tourism and allows a way to work out a system first before tourism.

          As for entitled…….I have spent 5 months separated from my family continuing to work around many countries and travel through this pandemic. It was not my choice to be stuck as there was no way to get home before the shutdown and even when I tried the Government failed to have isolation facilities available.
          Whats so entitled about wanting to come home??

              I think you are mistaken with that thousands are willing to quarantine. Not one person that I have talked with is willing to fly to an area that has a quarantine that is more than overnight and I work in a large company, been discussing travel amongst people who travel and have family who travel. Not one person has said “oh yeah, let me quarantine for 14 days before I even start my holiday”. In fact, we all are searching for places we can travel thru the winter without quarantine restrictions or too many COVID hoops to jump thru. A pre-test, testing upon arrival, masks, social distancing….anything much more than that….we are searching for another place and there are plenty of places that want our business.

Cayman doesn’t have to open this year as when they do, I will be back, but I’m just stating my opinion and those of the people around me that we are looking at the restrictions closely as we know we will be traveling when the weather gets cold here and we will be avoiding places with quarantine orders in place.. even those who go away for the entire winter.

                If you read my post before calling me a liar….Bermuda and Turks has strict testing measurements and is not even on my list above. Bermuda has closed several hotels until 2021, but there are hotels open. If I remember correctly re. Bermuda they have a pre-test, a travel documentation that needs to be filled out and a short quarantine period while you wait for their own testing to be done and then you need to take your temperature daily and report back on an app. There may be further testing every couple days, but I can not quite remember. I do not remember what T & C’s regulations are, but I know I said to myself that they had too many loops and I immediately crossed them off my travel list. Bahamas’s travel protocol (in the article I read two days ago) with all the protocols for the islands- Cayman was not listed) was not over the top and was very reasonable.
                The people I know, will not quarantine for 14 days and I know people who travel for most of the winter months (snowbirds). They are looking for places where that is not included. Just telling you how it is from the people I know and am in contact with and they are some budget tourists and others are high end travelers who stay in top end villas.

          My take on the mask wearing early on was that there was not enough masks to go around and if they asked everyone to start wearing them then the poor healthcare workers would be even in a more dire situation, so they discouraged the public from wearing them. Personally, it just makes sense to me, we all know you can’t supress a sneeze or cough and if you have a mask on it going to help. Not rocket science, stop being a Trumpster, it’s so annoying.

        CNS, not cool at all!

        Besides if one wears a mask he is protected. Hypothetical grandma or a person with pre-existing conditions who also wear a mask have nothing to worry about.

        CNS: Good grief! Where have you been? This is absolutely false. As has been said over and over, you wear a mask to protect other people, including the elderly and those who have pre-existing conditions – or those who will go on to spread it to vulnerable people. They do not protect the wearer. Suppressing the spread of the virus depends on everyone being a responsible, normal human being and not wanting other people to get sick. So I wear a mask to protect you and you wear a mask to protect me. Selfish idiots refuse to wear one when they are in an enclosed public place. There is nothing hypothetical about thousands of dead people. Further reading.

            Homemade cloth masks and others are equivalent to a chain link fence stopping pollen.

            Stop spreading falsehoods.

            CNS: Rush Limbaugh says cloth masks are useless. The overwhelming consensus from the medical community is that they help stop the spread. Even the governors of very right Alabama and Montana have made them mandatory in public in the face of raging outbreaks in those states. In the US, this has become an utterly ridiculous political issue. In the Cayman Islands we just want to protect our friends, family and neighbours. The N95 masks are for medical personnel so that the wearer is protected. Don’t conflate the two.

        Scientific research that benefits corporate profit, rather than the public good, has become the norm.

        And Google is new Nazi that steers your search in whatever direction it wants to steer. I have noticed it takes me far away from where I want to go,, so I asked around, some noticed, some not, but then articles started to appear, like this ones: WSJ Insists Google Steers Searchers To YouTube; Searching for Video? Google Pushes YouTube Over Rivals; This psychologist claims Google search results unfairly steer voters to the left. Conservatives love him).

        So I am not crazy.

          You are not paranoid. Google is steering your computer and only your computer. It knows where you are.

          The rest of us it ignores. The best thing for you to do is turn off all electricity, put on your tin hat and hide in a closet.

            Wrong. my search was tested on 3 different computers each at least 3,000-5,000K apart (different countries). All got the same results.
            Search engines other than Chrome produced more accurate results.

    From CNN this afternoon:

    ‘Florida reported another 10,181 cases of coronavirus yesterday, bringing the total of cases reported throughout the pandemic to at least 301,810, according to new numbers released by the Florida Department of Health.
    A total of 19,334 people are currently hospitalized across the state.

    If Florida was its own country, it would have the 8th highest case count in the world, according to Johns Hopkins University data. Only seven countries are reporting more total cases than the state of Florida: The US, Brazil, India, Russia, Peru, Chile and Mexico.’

    112 new deaths in Florida from Covid-19 so far today and more than 4500 total.

    Will the Covidiots still claim that we should throw the doors open for flights from Miami?

      If you listen to CNN you are an absolute idiot. Like Fox it is a propaganda machine. May I remind of you of a host struggling to stand still in a hurricane while persons walked casually by in the background? Honestly I pity and pray for CNN and FOX viewers.

        But the only way I can really understand the craziness of Trump is by watching Trump. Apparently Fox and their evening boys and girls are his top advisers.

        I don’t pray, it’s as much bs as fox.

        Please pray for Trump as FOX is his major source for all information.

        Oh Lord, are we ever in deep trouble.

      We can read and listen! But we prefer different sources of information. We don’t force different information on you and call you names. They start teaching in nurseries that calling names is unacceptable.
      Keep watching CNN if that is what you love to do. Just keep in mind that in the US there are state issued “guidelines“ on how to report hospital’s deaths biased towards Covid19. But that is probably over your head.

      When the virus is politicized nothing good but sound bites come out of such sources as CNN.

    • Why not be responsible says:

      If we stay locked down from foreigners we can maintain a reasonably safe position. But government will need money soon. Why government employees were not moved to areas that were clearly lacking personnel, ie CUSTOMS Is without reason.

        Without reason? Government is as government does. Cayman has gone from the jewel of the Caribbean to the laughing stock of the Caribbean.

            There is now no way to sugar coat what is going on in the USA. America now have a full scale raging dumpster fire 🔥 🔥 underway with absolutely no idea when the fire is going to be put out.

            So maddening when one looks at all the fires in other countries that were put out effectively a few months ago.

            Cayman, be prudent, take it slow, and be prepared to embrace a new normal. Short term pain for long term gain.
