    1. 1 resident who was tested as a close contact of a known case. Is this a family member, an office colleague … why isn’t Govt saying?
    2. 1 resident who arrived on DL 584 on 10 November 2020 who tested positive on their arrival test, having not had a pre-test … what is happening to the others on that flight?

    It was 23 at the beginning of the week so does this mean that five people have now recovered and the five new cases.

    The numbers keep going up so at what point do we make the hard decisions? This thing could explode very quickly now and I fear that if it does we are in for a nightmare compared to the last time around.

      What “hard decisions” do we need to make? Every case since July has come through the airport (with occasional on-island transmission, as a result of coming in through the airport). The virus isn’t exactly running rampant around the island, is it? And so what it if is? How many people are in hospital? ZERO! So what’s your problem? Are you proposing to shut the island down again? For 23 people? That means all non-essential retail closes, bars close, restaurants close, schools close, hotels have no guests…how many people will that impact? I guarantee it’s a lot more than 23. And can the Government afford to offer furlough to all these workers again? NO! Government doesn’t have any money!

      If you’re so worried, I suggest you stay at home and wrap yourself up in cotton wool until a health department worker turns up at your front door with the “miracle” vaccine. In the meantime, I hope you don’t perish of boredom or starvation.

        You sound like you want to fly to Atlanta to do Christmas shopping. Do you know why Government don’t have any money?
