Over 100 travellers cleared from quarantine

| 24/09/2020 | 29 Comments

(CNS): Over 100 people who have completed two weeks in mandated quarantine have been release with no one testing positive for COVID-19. Chief Medical Officer Dr John Lee said Thursday that 181 COVID-19 tests carried out over the last day were all negative, and that the number of people in quarantine had fallen from 232 on Tuesday to 129. This means that 103 people have now been released from isolation without adding to the COVID-19 tally of 210 cases to date.

However, officials have still not confirmed if the three travellers who tested positive earlier this month at the end of their two week quarantine had been formally cleared of the virus, even though they have all passed a further ten days beyond their original quarantine.

Cayman currently has one other active case, which was picked up in the community over the weekend as part of the screening programme and is believed to be a case of the virus lingering in an individual long after they had contracted the virus.

Cayman has now carried out 38,679 tests and front-line workers are being tested regularly, but the continued negative tests indicates to public health officials that the community remains virus free. However, they are urging the wider public to come forward to maintain the comprehensive testing programme which has been fundamental to Cayman’s management of the virus.

    Don’t get what you’re trying to say about the CDC.They only really confirmed what everyone with a cerebral cortex already knew. 90% of the 200k are people that would have died regardless of the COVID19. They have the numbers and had to shamed into admitting hard inconvenient facts.

    Check COVID19 deaths vs.population
    Pure mortality rate not IFR
    USA Population: 328,000,000.
    Deaths: 200,000
    Brazil Population: 208,000,000
    Deaths: 139,000
    UK Population:66,650,000
    Deaths: 41,902
    The ratio? All exactly the same: 0.06%

    what are we doing??? its insanity shutting down, there is more than enough information in the world to know that we can easily manage living normally WITH covid19 (it’s never going away anyhow, what are we waiting for?)

      The population of the US is immaterial unless the entire population was exposed to the virus; same with all of the other countries.

      If you think everyone should take the risk of being infected with Covid19 the go ahead a say so, but keep the misleading statistics to yourself.

        WOW, where did you go to school that taught you such analytical skills? Must be in Cayman.

        All I hear that you are really afraid.

        But “He that is born to be hanged shall never be drowned.”

        People die getting out of their house to get mail from the mail box by a blown tire from a passing car. Or stepping out of a hotel front door then slipping on pavement..Sadly, true cases.

      Check Covid19 deaths vs infections
      USA infections 7,000,000
      USA deaths 200,000 or 2.85% of the people who were infected
      UK infections 423,236
      UK deaths 41,902 or 9.9% of the people who were infected

      How do you propose we deal with 3% of our population, or approximately 1,800 people dying from Covid once everyone gets exposed?

        Nearly every country has proved the confirmend cases are about 10X what is reported….That is not the same for deaths!
        But yes still is higher that 0.06% though.

        Stop the fear mongering. The CDC confirmed 90% of the US Covid-19 deaths would have happened regardless of COVID-19. Its called morbidities, people have been dying from underlying conditions forever.

        • Anonymous says:

          I’m absolutely certain that the correct figure is 100% of all people will eventually die. However, when looking at the number of people who died in a specific period it is higher than expected and that number is directly attributed to Covid19.

  4. TRAINED DOGS DETECT COVID19... says:

    Quickest, Cheapest, Reliable way to detect COVID19 at Airport…

      “Probably too easy and simple to even be considered by the relevant Authorities…”

      Do you think the volunteers at the Humane Society could train the dogs in a couple of weeks, or do you think the other countries training the dogs will send them to us because we need them much more than they do?

      Please offer yourself for election, we desperately need people like you with easy solutions to every problem.

        Always a bad idea to ridicule posters unless you are certain you know what you are talking about or research it first. From an article in the Guardian :

        https://amp.theguardian.com/world/2020/sep/25/any-breed-could-do-it-dogs-might-be-covid-testers-best-friend

        “It took Volk’s team just two weeks to train their dogs – he said hunting breeds were best suited to the work – but the French team said any breed, including mongrels, could potentially be trained. “

        perhaps YOU should run for the LA – you demonstrate the same open mindedness and willingness to mock people that you don’t agree with as some of our current crop of MLAs.

          Jotnar – thanks for posting the link regarding training dogs to sniff out Covid-19. It is a very interesting concept.

      The cost of acquiring, training, safeguarding, feeding, housing that kind of dog would be high.

      The first question I always ask WHY?

      Why do you want to detect the virus? 99% of earth population either had it but remained asymptotic and or recovered with mild symptoms and or were and remain immune to it.

      Secondly, TRAINED DOGS DETECT COVID19 seems like an overkill.

    Its working. Like most of the developed world.

    “…is believed to be a case of the virus lingering in an individual long after they had contracted the virus.”

    If you start testing every single individual at least 50% will be positive with remnants of COVID and many other viruses that cause no harm to anyone.

    Simply Unbelievable! Ten additional days! Dictatorship that is spitting on Human Rights.

    Still loss for words how the UK and CI governments are systematically destroying our economy because of stupidity. 90% of all so called Covid deaths the primary cause is not even caused by Covid the CDC admitted. We’ve been conned into thinking Covid is serious, when the common flu is more deadly. Surely this government will now move to get Tourists here, not under house arrest for 14 days with the announcement from Dart on layoffs at the hotels.

    • Anonymous says:

      Innacurate in several respects.

      1. The CDC unfortunately cannot be fully/blindly trusted due to political shenangians by the Trump gangsters.
      2. The flu is not more lethal than Covid.
      3. Latent medical problems from seasonal flu are insignificant. But with Covid they are extremely serious and quite possibly permanent.

      Please get educated and stop spreading nonsense.

        Do not let the fear control you. Life needs to recover its course.

    How do the paranoids explain this? You know the ones that said bars shouldn’t be opened. The schools shouldn’t be opened. That we should keep wearing masks. There are only two possible answers. One, they gullible and wrong. Two, the tests are faulty.
