Unvaccinated people dominating positive COVID-19 cases

Chief Nursing Officer Dr Hazel Brown delivers the weekly COVID-19 update

(CNS): According to an update on the current trends of the COVID-19 pandemic in the Cayman Islands, 70% of all the new positive cases of the virus recorded during the first week of November were among the unvaccinated. Chief Nursing Officer Dr Hazel Brown said that 14 people were admitted to hospital with COVID-19, twelve of whom were admitted for just COVID-related illness, and six people were discharged. She also noted that 87% of those who have been hospitalised to date were unvaccinated.

This second ever video report on weekly trends data is being reported by ‘epidemiological week’, or epi week, which runs from Sunday to the following Saturday, which is the standardised method of counting weeks to allow for the comparison of data. For the week of 31 October to 6 November there was an average of 178 new COVID-19 cases per day and a weekly total of 1,251. Just 1% were recorded in travellers.

The ages of positive cases ranged from three months to 90 years, with an average age of 30 years, and 54% of the cases were among women. “There were three babies under the age of one year, 405 cases were between one year and 18 years, and 16 were over the age of 70. Most of the cases are in the workforce,” Dr Brown said.

“As the community transmission continues, Public Health is encouraging compliance with the government regulations and continuing vigilance to protect yourself and your loved ones,” she said. “If you are isolated or quarantined, you may still prevent ongoing transmission if you adhere to the recommendations. Wear your masks, use hand sanitizer, and practice physical distance.”

All over the world a similar trend has emerged. While vaccinated people can be infected, they are less vulnerable to infection, and more often asymptomatic or experience only mild symptoms. They tend to be infected for shorter periods, and while they can still spread the virus, a shorter milder experience with COVID also means the window of opportunity for them to spread the virus is reduced.

For emergencies, such as difficulty breathing, call 911.

    Update: 15 hospitalized and many VERY sick, and 4 now on ventilators (Did Premier Panton offer up these figures in his radio interview this morning?) — Dr. Lee announced that we have a total of 55 beds available for Covid-19 sufferers — and still CITA encourages tourists to come to Cayman even though we’ve been placed on the CDC red list; CIG have not delayed the census so people are going door-to-door — in the middle of a rising pandemic! Really? Are the data collectors vaccinated? No 6ft markers on the supermarket floors to aid social distancing, retailers have given up on anything other than putting a “No Mask, No Entry” sign in the window and putting out a spray of Lord only knows what. Some sprays certainly do not contain alcohol that’s for sure. People with masks around their necks and not over their noses in indoor spaces. I predict the hospital beds will be fully occupied in 2-weeks time after people ignore the health and safety protocols over this long weekend.

    It is nice to talk about personal choice of vaccination.
    But your choice stops at your home.
    If you want to come to cayman for work we have some rules.
    Same way if some one wants to come to piublic places some rules like mask social dist vax etc. Then it is upto any ones s choice to go to those places or not
    But to say I dont want to get vaxed and my freedom shouldnt be stopped is ridiculous.
    Actually not allowing unvaxed in public places is for his own protection. They should understand that.

        So let’s say no vaccine requirements 7:45, workers immigrate here, a large percentage on minimum wage, a lot on the cheapest medical and they get sick from COVid. Is it Govt’s responsibility then to assume the costs after the policy limits are exceeded and especially if insurance stipulates no coverage for COVid treatment for unvaccinated patients ? That’s a Govt decision perhaps made with economic science

    I think the HSA or Ministry or CMO there should be one concrete agency for data reporting of Covid positives,vaxed vs unvaxed etc.

    A standard format of a table with tested numbers on daily basis ,results age and sex and vax status of positives , symptomatic vs asymptomatic vs vaxed and unvaxed etc.

          The Compass has Active Cases and Worldometer is total cases. So Compass dashboard shows 2k+ currently infected and Worldometer 3,247 total infections since the start.

          In either case they are objectively wrong and actually worsening an exploding public health crisis.

    The way to get everyone vaccinated is for the government and the health insurance companies to stop covering the COVID-19 care for unvaccinated people that are eligible to be vaccinated. When people start to get bills that send them into bankruptcy the word will quickly get around and everyone will get vaccinated.

    This is fearmongering

    • Anonymous says:

      This isn’t fearmongering. It’s just the truth. If you took the time to read the article you’d see that she said that 405 cases were between the ages 1 – 18. I guess you could complain that she didn’t break it down to 1-11 since people 12 and over can be vaccinated. She also said that the majority of cases were in the workplace, not the classroom but the workplace.

      Either way this shows what we already knew – unvaccinated people whether they are children or adults are more likely to catch covid. That’s why it’s so important all adults that can be vaccinated are. That way they will be less likely to catch covid and spread it to children.

      It kinda seems like you don’t want to face the truth for some reason.

    • Not very Clear says:


      So, 1251 cases:
      3 under a year, 405 (18 and under). No breakdown of the younger group that is vaccinated? This is very misleading to present the data in this fashion. If the numbers excluded the group that isn’t able to be vaccinated (the young) then what would the numbers say?

      375 vaccinated people are sick (30%)
      876 unvaccinated people are sick (70%)

      But, a large number of the under 18 group won’t be vaccinated due to their age.
      408 unvaccinated crowd of the 876 may not be able to take the jab. Regardless the young group faces very low risk.

      If all of the 18 years and younger were removed then:
      843 cases are 18 years and older.

      That would mean up to 44% of the sick are vaccinated (we can’t tell exactly because they don’t give the numbers how many under 18 are vaccinated).

      So, roughly of those sick above 18 years old:

      44% are vaccinated and 56% are unvaccinated. It would probably be closer to say 40% to 60% since some of the under 18 crowd is vaccinated but it gets old having to point out misleading information.

    • Anonymous says:

      It’s not fear mongering. Even if you exclude the 14% that are children, the cayman stats show you are currently 20 times more likely to be in hospital if unvaccinated. Including children in the 20% of the island unvaccinated increases the total unvaccinated population when calculating % of total unvaxed that are sick, so it reduces the stats on % of all unvaxed ill compared to the % of vaxed given we know the vast majority of cases are workers with an average age of 34.

      I mean if you read the article and passed elementary math you should be able to deduce that. I’m guessing that you didn’t actually read the article tho. Seems to be a trend with y’all that struggle with common sense. Do you even know wtf fear mongering is? You know what is more scary than the actual stats? The amount of bonafide idiots we have in our populace.

      The bottom line is, the minority of the population is unvaccinated, yet somehow they make up a majority of the positives. Does it matter whether they had a choice to vaccinate or not in this case? Absolutely not. It’s just more prove that you’re less likely to catch COVID if you are vaccinate. Period point fkn blank.

Some people like the OP should read the article before trying to imply there is some conspiracy going on.

    You guys still rambling on about this like it really matters. How many unvaccinated people you see dying or severely ill? Why all of a sudden the Government stopped publishing how many people infected are vaccinated vs unvaccinated? Hmm, how convenient (not like you could trust the stats anyway).Even if there were more vaccinated people infected than the unvaxxed, you wouldn’t see that on a headline because it doesn’t fit the agenda. I respect everyone’s choice whether they take the jab it or not, but the hostility toward the unvaxxed is unreal. All of you that took the jab need to stop walking around like you’re invincible, especially those that are piling up KFC/Burger King drive through, drinking/smoking copious amounts of alcohol and cigarettes everyday like they can’t get heart disease, cancer or other diseases. You don’t see the unvaxxed telling you what to do with your health, so respect our decision.

    • Anon345 says:

      What are your thoughts on different health insurance premiums for the vaxed v unvaxed?

      Insurance companies in Cayman base their premiums on companies claims from the prior year plus a profit margin.

      There is a significantly higher chance of being hospitalised with covid if you are unvaxed. We can see that readily from the numbers in this article.

      If you work at a company with a significant number of unvaxed staff there is a higher chance that more will need expensive hospital treatment and the companies insurance premiums will rise the following year for all staff.

      The vaxed will ask why they are paying extra (essentially for unvaxed) when it is their choice to remain more at risk.

      It is inevitable that companies will start realising this when they renewing policies and will try to instigate different premiums for the vaxed v unvaxed.

      Sorry but this is incredible. Did you even read the article? It gives you the unvaccinated vs vaccinated stats that you claim aren’t being published. I think you need to do better.

    Why are LFT test results only taken into account if they are positive?

    If you test positive you have to isolate.

    If after a certain amount of time the positive person tests negative with an LFT they have to remain in isolation until a PCR is done via a house call, and they are busy and cant attend for two days!

    In a friends case, they will likely be required to stay in isolation 4 additional days after a negative LFT waiting for the results of the PCR.

    • Anonymous says:

      And they will never be counted as an official positive case!

    • Anonymous says:

      because the LFTs have lower sensitivity than PCR. So to be sure someone is clear you use PCR.

      LFT Clear + no other signs = assume clear. the chance you are not is outweighed by the cost and time to do a PCR.
      LFT Positive = assume positive. very little chance you are not, so very little value of PCR.
      LFT clear + other signs (like a previous/recent positive LFT) = assume positive until PCR clear. Positive, though below LFT detection limit, but possibly infectious. so worth cost and time (to the community) to do PCR.

      that is the logic. it errs somewhat on the side of caution, with a dash of pragmatism. opinions of the balance between the two may vary.

You are correct however in one aspect of saying ‘whether one is aware of their underlying conditions or not is moot’ because even if you don’t, or think you don’t have any such conditions there is still the possibility in contracting the disease and to that of it being fatal.

      66% of the positive cases are over 18 and under 70 – 830 cases. Whereas 405 are under 18 (vaccination is available for 12+)

      It’s not just unvaccinated kids testing positive.
      As Dr Hazel said, most of the cases are in the workforce

        They really don’t want to here that…

        This is all a conspiracy to control them.

        Except it is only the Sheeple that are too stupid and follow the medical advice. The majority of the “critical thinkers” are way to smart to be controlled like this.

        I’m not sure why there would need to be a conspiracy to control We the Sheeple as We the Sheeple are the ones that go along with things.

        And in terms of being controlled, not being able to leave this island because you are too smart to be controlled and won’t cave into the conspiracy, sure seems like giving up a lot of control.

        If I’m an idiot for getting vaxed what are they?

    How is it even possible that 70% of new cases are in unvaxxed people when they only make up 20% of the population? That’s horrible. Come on Wayne it’s time to stop unvaxxed from going to restaurants and bars. And who even wants to work with an unvaxxed if they are the majority of cases.

      It’s bizarre that we don’t have a passport system. Ban unvaxed from bars, restaurants, cinemas and non essential shops, and have a alphabet one hour a week shopping hour in non peak times for them at the supermarkets.

        Better to do that now rather than having another lockdown for everyone because the healthcare system is overwhelmed later. Panton did say that another lockdown was possible if the hospitals couldn’t cope.

        Totally agree with your post as it is absolutely based on sound public health principles. Unfortunately the people that issue instructions to PACT will never allow it as it might negatively affect their bottom lines.

      Indeed. All I can say Natural Immunity, Natural Immunity, Natural Immunity … Let them post all they want. It always wins.

        So you are going to intentionally catch the virus, to try and avoid catching the virus.

        Best logic ever

        next, to avoid being run over by a car accidently, unvaxxed is going to jump into moving traffic on purpose

        O.K. Where can I get it?

        It always wins? I don’t think 70% of cases and 87% of hospitalizations despite only being 20% of the population shows that natural immunity is winning.

    Mandate ALL civil service workers to get vaccinated. What makes them so special that they can say no? Oh, I forgot. They are mostly woters!

      Read the Constitution on Bill of Rights. That is why they can’t touch civil servants. Expats don’t fall under the supreme law, so they could do that to you. Please spare us parroting the same comment. This is the second or third read this comment.

      • Anonymous says:

        The very purpose of the relevant aspects of the Constitution are to protect ALL people, especially the more vulnerable, from government overreach. The fact that these requirements are not being applied to civil servants is what makes their application to expatriates in the private sector unconstitutional, and therefore unlawful.

    Most cases are within the workforce? And Yet offices are operating as normal, even where remote working is possible? Any transmission control efforts, or are we just to let ‘er rip?

    • Anonymous says:

      Companies should voluntarily go to remote working if feasible. My work place has had allot of positives. Im vaccinated but I would feel better at home.

      I think we can all agree we will have to do better than the government.

      Try telling that to my employer and my workplace is filled with positives and many of us can work remotely.

      Why wouldn’t they? The government had given them no direction otherwise. We need leadership.

      Not all

      Hopefully they are doing something to protect their staff. It would be irresponsible for businesses to not require their staff to be vaccinated or at least test regularly if not. People should be able to sue if they don’t have such a policy and end up getting sick.

      Offices are operating as if there is no covid. People refuse to wear masks in some work places that are not client facing.

      Cowards? You are sick! You wouldn’t last a day with how we the unvaccinated people are treated by our government who implement rules that show no regards to the unvaccinated persons due to medical issues. We are the ones that out at work with the infected vaccinated person who feels entitled because they won’t get sick. Yes we bleed and have families that we are worried to carry home this virus to our loved ones. Sad that we have to go through this modern day discrimination implemented by our government.

      • Anonymous says:

        Im not sure how the government is discriminating against you. I don’t think the public is critical of people that can’t be vaccinated for legitimate medical reasons. Please do make sure that you speak to your doctor though because very very few people actually can’t be vaccinated and sometimes the people with medical issues are actually the people that should have been vaccinated first.

          THere is ONLY ONE medical reason not to be vaxxed and it’s rare, so I call your BS!

      That is one of the most idiotic comments I’ve ever seen on this site. It’s a choice. What part of that don’t you understand.
      Practically all of the people I know who remain unvaxxed are healthy and extremely confident that they will have no bother surviving this pandemic, just as they did before they were any vaccines available worldwide.
      At this stage the stats are hugely in favour of theme staying above ground………thanks to all the vaccinated people. We are one of the highest vaccinated countries on the planet. This is as good as it’s going to get.
      “Unvaccinated cowards”….utter nonsense

    Compass said 12 were discharged.

    CNS: The Compass gets the same info we do. Dr Brown is reporting on the data for the first week in November, when six people were discharged from hospital. In yesterday’s report by Dr Lee (see here), he said that 12 people in total had been discharged. You’re muddling the two reports up.
