COVID-19 test results remain negative

| 28/08/2020 | 24 Comments

(CNS): Cayman ended another week on Friday in which it recorded no positive tests for the COVID-19 coronavirus, with a further 141 negative results from tests carried out over the last day. This week Cayman has carried out 987 tests, all of which were negative, bringing the running total to 35,195 with just 205 positive results since March. But there are now almost 300 people in quarantine who could change that.

While Cayman is able to pat itself on the back for getting the virus under control, many of those arriving in Cayman over the last two weeks have come from or passed directly through three parts of the world where the virus is still nowhere near under control.

While Jamaica had been doing well managing the pandemic, it has seen a surge in transmissions recently, not least because of the Independence Day celebrations but also the reopening of the country’s borders. Jamaica has recorded a total of 1,870 cases and over 1,000 of them remain active. Just a few days ago eight-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt said he was in self-quarantine there after testing positive for the virus following a party celebrating his birthday.

The UK has seen over 331, 600 infections since the pandemic arrived there. Although cases there have been declining, the UK does not keep a running tally of active cases and has recently seen a resurgence in infections in some areas. On Thursday the UK recorded its highest number of new daily infections since June at more than 1,500 cases.

Then there is the United States, where most of those in isolation travelled through, in particular Miami Airport in Florida, the state with the most active cases in all of America. The US has now recorded more than six million cases. Florida accounts for over 615,000 of them and currently has more than 533,000 active cases, with over 153,000 of those in Miami-Dade county.

    cns: feel free to ban the conspiracy theorey nut-jobs….they offer nothing.

      You thinking covid 19 is worth closing down the economy and island is a conspiracy theory based on no science. Its a flu that killed no one in cayman despite hundreds being infected, hospital empty, and the average age of covid 19 death is older than the average life expectancy. Get real moron.

      Night sky is just one aspect of the madness.

      “The night sky itself is a cultural artifact,” said Chris Impey, a professor of astronomy at the University of Arizona. “It seems terribly shortsighted and, essentially, technologically arrogant to assume that there’s no cultural impact.”

      “The night sky is the ultimate public good. It is our ultimate commons,” Hartley said. “No one individual can protect it and, on the flip side, no one individual should be allowed to despoil it.”

      Conspiracy theories are used to shut-down a conversation when evidence is available to question the status-quo. What is the best cover for anything you want to push onto the public? A conspiracy theory… once a subject has been labeled as conspiracy-theory, it forces the masses take sides because they are faced with only two choices:
      1. Be part of the perceived-looney-crowd
      2. Be part of the perceived-rational-crowd

      Politicians use it to mock and dismiss allegations against them.

      I think it’s easy to call ‘conspiracy theory.’ But wouldn’t that be exactly what conventional wisdom wants us to believe that ‘everything must be a conspiracy theory?’ This method is a great way to control viewpoints and dismiss investigation. The best way to hide something is in plain sight. Any good detective or mystery novel author knows this. Here is the formula: take any natural occurrance that the public becomes acclimated to then use it as a means to an end.
      The best cover for doing something insidious and manipulative is doing it just as nature does it at the same moment.
      If somone wanted to test some new type of electrical technology that produced a lightning bolt or weather anomaly that would be a controversy to the public if word got out, I’m guessing they’d test the tech in Alabama or Florida where lightning and freaky storms are a daily event to help hide their experiments and manipulation. nnEMF is particularly insidious because it’s naturally invisible to the sheeple.

      By the way, to be clear, I pride myself choosing the looney-crowd. Seriously, I hate conventional wisdumb like a disease now. Lastly, being part of the looney-crowd leads to personal leadership and keeping creativity fresh and alive. How is it that so many smart people have such developed such close-mindedness? I think it’s because they take the easy-way out, and easy way is low dopamine to dismiss a conversation because it would hurt their ganglions.

    It is not Covid19 that would finish us off, but 40,000 Elon Musk’ satellites and millions 5G antennas to connect with those satellites. I wonder if Covid19 hysteria was orchestrated to shift focus from SpaceX.

    SpaceX may be the dominant player, but it is far from the only U.S. company with plans to slather “every inch of the world” with emissions from low-orbit 5G satellites. Amazon—angling for a potential four billion new customers—plans to launch a total of 3,236 satellites and promises to start delivering Internet services as soon as a fifth of them are in place. Facebook is also planning for thousands of satellites. Finally, the Google subsidiary Loon has begun targeting “unserved and underserved communities” in Latin America for LTE service provided by its network of stratospheric balloons traveling on “the edge of space.”

    In March 2020, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved SpaceX’s ground antenna application. As if radiation from tens of thousands of satellites were not concerning enough, the FCC’s blanket license for up to a million ground transmitters allows SpaceX Services (a SpaceX subsidiary) to install terminals that will use “advanced beamforming and steerable antenna technology” to wirelessly connect end-users (human and machine) on the ground with the orbiting satellites. These “consumer-facing device[s]” could place radiation-emitting terminals directly in homes.

    The almost 400 satellites launched to date are approaching the threshold number at which SpaceX says it can begin supplying 5G coverage from space. This year, SpaceX plans to accelerate its satellite launches to an average of 120 per month (60 every two weeks).

    They flood Earth with powerful, focused electromagnetic beams that emit radiofrequency (RF) and microwave radiation proven to adversely affect the health of humans, animals and plants. The satellites also may have an impact on Earth’s natural electromagnetic field—essential to all life on our planet—yet no national or international agency has taken action to evaluate, reduce, prevent or publicize the environmental impact of the satellites’ emissions. Meanwhile, significant effects are already occurring.

    yet no national or international agency has taken action

    There was an amazing front page article in the Daily Mail today.
    Apparently a nurse came out publicly and challenged the official narrative.
    Good for her, I would say. It wasn’t the article that caught me by surprise, but it was the thousands of comments by the public.
    It makes very fascinating reading.

    Finally, people are beginning to stand up against their failed governments.

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8678585/NHS-worker-investigation-claimed-coronavirus-load-b-ks.html#article-8678585

    My personal opinion is that a lot more of us should challenge the official narrative. The reason why the situation spiralled out of control was because people were afraid to put their names to their opinions, myself included.

    I think that Martyn Roper, John Lee and Alden McLaughlin have a lot of explaining to do. John John not so much, he was used.

    I know they will blame the WHO and faulty science, but the truth of the matter is that they were in on it from the beginning. Their agenda was clear from the start.
    They created compliance through fear, economic destruction, and limited movement.

    Now, this is my opinion and I urge those who feel the same to speak up before free speech is no longer possible.

    I am incredibly concerned as to the actions of Martyn Roper during his tenure.
    He has allowed all of this to occur while creating his army. For an organization supposed to be protecting us against disasters, why do they have to have loads of weapons and ammo? Are we the enemy?
    Those of us who dare to speak our minds?

    The best thing that could happen now is for the Caymanian people to take back control of their islands and hold a referendum that returns power to them.

    The Governor should be repatriated and Alden McLaughlin needs to be fully investigated.
    The Freemason Lodge needs to be eradicated.

    Finally, the British “democracy” that gives us a false hope every 4 years should be abandoned in favour of a system that allows the majority voice to be heard on ALL matters of state.

    Caymanian people, thank you for the wonderful years that I shared amongst you.

    The pandemic where the prevailing symptom is in fact no symptoms!

    This week the CDC quietly updated the COVID19 numbers to admit that only 6% of all the 153,504 deaths recorded actually died from COVID19. That’s 9,210 deaths.
    The other 94% had 2-3 other serious illnesses and the overwhelming majority were of very advanced age”
    https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid_weekly/index.htm

    People will look back on this year as the year that the “expert class” was exposed as a rogues’ gallery of criminally-inept morons.
    It’s obvious to a critical thinker that a common cold doesn’t kill that many people. However, “a novel Coronavirus” to a blindfolded sheep is capable of killing everyone on the planet so it’s something to be afraid of.

    To be fair this doesn’t change COVID19 being the cause of death for those who also happen to have co-morbidities. But it is the same for flu or any other disease.

    You might not be relieved by the 6% stat. and
    ask: Why would they lump 94% as covid deaths? Seems illogical & much too deceitful .. I don’t buy it.. I can see some errors but off by that much?

    There is still plenty of room for confusion — you died of it .. you died with it … the big question being did infection hasten deaths?

    The tables in the above link do have all of the other conditions listed with totals!

    As a law-abiding citizen of this planet and with a fairly decent education up to tertiary level in scientific disciplines, I have never been comfortable with the official narrative in this “pandemic”.

    As an engineer with a background in pure mathematics and physics, I am curious about anything I am told to believe.

    I am very curious as to why the WHO is preaching the gospel of “test, test, test”?

    Kary Mullis invented the current testing method.
    Unfortunately, Mullis passed away last year at the age of 74, but there is no doubt that the biochemist regarded the PCR as inappropriate to detect a viral infection.

    It is as though we have created a new religion based on fear and very little fact.

    Any opponents to this new religion are vilified verbally and some even assaulted physically.

    There is no scientic proof that masks prevent particles of the purported size of a virus molecule passing through any more than a chain link fence keeps mosquitoes out of your garden.

    It is important for people to question every narrative until they are satisfied that they have heard the truth.

    My personal take on this is that this corona virus situation has brought most of the world into a compliant state and I would not be surprised if something more deadly will be unleashed around November which will require total lock down, no travel and mandatory vaccinations with severe penalty for refusal.

    As I said, it is only my opinion based on extrapolation techniques derived from current data and I hope I am wrong.

    I simply do not trust the government, both the colonial and local power brokers. How is it that with all the problems in Cayman, we suddenly decide to trust people with a failed track record?

      You’re not alone. I agree with your every word. The rehearsal to see if they could do it.

      Any person with just common sense would see that first ‘wave’ measured in number of deaths. Second ‘wave’ measured in cases. This whole thing is unadulterated horse pucky.
      Undisguised lies on the part of numerous governments with not one dissenting voice? Really? Not one?

      Highest case toll not highest death toll. Big difference.

      Many right there with you but like you said, the second we speak out or ask questions, we get attacked and statistics of unknown verification thrown in our faces. Worse, when we try to share info that asks people to THINK for themselves (god forbid), its either “fact checked” by the FB cartel or we are reminded by our own govt about “spreading misinformation”. Apparently, we should only get info from our govt who has a track record to date of hiding everything from us or lying. Unbelievable.

        Yes, you are absolutely right, but remember that truth cannot be broken and as such do not be afraid to put your name to your words.
        Perhaps they kill us and then what? Everyone has to die, but not everyone goes to heaven.

      “ I am curious about anything I am told to believe.” Frankly, I am relieved that there are still people left who use their brain.
      Perhaps people like him were raised and educated in different environment where developing critical thinking, a questioning mind was encouraged. Perhaps the traits are individual.
      Sadly, google is changing our brains. Future generations of people will have an IQ of a child. But not all. Someone has to “lead” the masses.
      Please look at your child right this moment. What is he doing? Write back if he is reading a book, playing outside with friends or fixing his bicycle.

      A mask really isn’t that big of a deal. We don’t have to wear them now so who cares. Let’s put more energy into why dillweeds keep eating bats.

        In SWFL masks were never mandatory and there were no lockdowns. Yet, people still wear masks if they feel like. Not just elderly. I saw a bunch of young Mexican guys (construction or landscaping?) in 7/11 today. All were wearing masks.
        So I think we could drop the masks issue.

        I am not sure why do you want to put your energy into something you have no control of. Besides it is not a fact, just an assumption.

        May be playing basketball on a beach is a better idea?

      I hope that my life never has to depend on anything engineered by you. For someone with a tertiary education in scientific disciplines your logic is astounding. Did you ever come across the word vector during any of your studies?

      “There is no scientic proof that masks prevent particles of the purported size of a virus molecule passing through any more than a chain link fence keeps mosquitoes out of your garden.”

      Do you also argue that screens do not keep the dengue virus out of your house? Or have you been indoctrinated by pseudo science to believe that the dengue virus is carried by the mosquito (vector) instead of flying around on its own virus wings?

      Everyone knows that dengue, covid-19, and all other viruses have miniature wings too small to be seen on an electron microscope, and flying through the weaves of an N95 mask for them is as easy as a mosquito flying through a chain link fence.

    The political rallies in Jamaica is the major reason. Stop blaming tourists, the border opened long ago. And keep flying people in from the U.K. Compared to Jamaica their numbers are quite reasonable – not.

      Why is everyone blaming tourist? In the Bahamas it was NOT the tourist that started the resurgence and this week the Turks and Caicos Premier in her press conferance confirms that their resurgence has nothing to do with tourists, to the point tourists have inter island travel BUT locals do not.
      We need to be aware it has been the locals on these islands that have caused the new outbreaks by not following the rules.
