I was told of 2 persons who tested positive. I waited on the update to reflect those 2 additional persons. It didn't happen until almost 5 days later. Made me more skeptical of their reporting.

update on my fever: it was tonsillitis, likely from environmental exposure (saharan dust, ash, or other air pollution).

Those who encouraging people to go outside, remember that saharan dust not easy and I can speak from experience. Right now we more exposure to saharan dust than COVID19.

Hello p.i;

Welcome back.

Yeh bro that does be the worst. Pressure to swallow with tonsillitis and throat infections etc.

I had a upper respiratory tract infection last week...took a 3 day course of Zithromax and some Augmentin as a back up...oh and Nimulid and Allegra.

Again, with these types of “mild” issues, they will still not test you.

How could they test them? I was repeatedly told by the Minister of Health that asymptomatic people do not have enough viral load to be detected with the PCR testing.


Boy... they hit the public with so much bullsheit during the past 6 weeks it not even funny anymore.
Trinidad isn't using the same test that is used in the USA.


We aren't, but PCR testing detects viral loads. It has been stated from a multitude of medical bodies that asymptomatic persons often have higher viral loads than those showing symptoms.

But fine, let's say we took the fairly reasonable position of not testing random persons not showing symptoms. Testing is limited to the laughable 30 a day. Even Aruba is doing ten times more testing per population than us.

We are WOEFFULLY under testing that it is not even funny.

Although I completely agree with your position and have stated that earlier that I believe there is insufficient population testing to know the true extent of infection, the tests are not the same, have different levels of accuracy and have been targeted with different criteria than what is being used elsewhere.

A different test given only to those with a travel history, etc., and few to go around. No one is hiding the true numbers of infections because that number cannot be currently known. But you can compare respiratory illness mortality and that indicates that there is no horrific increase in that particular death rate.

If things were as bad as that, we would have our walk in Facilities overwhelmed....

So far its very good. Even if we have local transmission, we hope it burns out naturally....

We could not have tested beyond the capabilities of the test...
Look at NY. 389 plus deaths last 24 hrs....
Random sampling was done with ppl who were presenting similar symtoms and all negative, what more

Just NEED to keep our international borders CLOSED for the next 2 to 3 months and hopefully we should be ok, we cannot afford to let anyone into the country from the USA or Canada or Europe or anywhere for that matter that may have it, as that would render all our current quarantine a total waste of time.
Let’s hope our leaders are smart for a change.

Seeing that but I will still wait for the 10pm update, (if they still have those) or even tomorrow because their timing with updates is sometimes off.

The reason I skeptical is because the person briefly mentioned surnames as well and I didn't ask any additional info to get anybody in trouble. So we will stick with "alleged" for the time.

CDC adds 6 new possible coronavirus symptoms

The CDC has updated its list of possible symptoms for the novel coronavirus to include chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headaches, sore throat, and a loss of taste or smell.

The big picture: Previously, the CDC only included fever, cough and shortness of breath as possible symptoms, which may appear 2–14 days after exposure to the virus. Clinicians are finding evidence that the coronavirus affects more than just the lungs, the Washington Post reported earlier this month.

COVID-19 may be causing acute kidney disease, neurological malfunction, heart inflammation, blood clots, liver problems and intestinal damage, according to clinicians around the world.

The bottom line: If you experience trouble breathing, persistent chest pain or pressure or bluish lips, the CDC advises that you seek medical attention immediately.

The UK Government has been accused of being "resource driven" in its COVID policies as it seeks to manage short supplies of test kits and equipment.

As a result they have (allegedly) been under-reporting infections and deaths of both the population (especially care homes) and NHS workers in an attempt to convince the public that everything is under control.

Their lockdown was recently extended as well.

Sounds familiar...:|

The CMO in the same salary range as the comptroller of customs among other public servants.. I'm sure he can get more in private practice.

Yes.
And there is one doctor who went Hillview a few years ahead of me in the ophthalmologist field and he has boasted to his friends from his year that I also know that he makes 250k a week.

I can't vouch for his boasts but given his lifestyle I can't see him being far off.

Main road doctors with their private practice usually make 20k+ per week easily.

The doctor usually have to employ 2-3 people though. A receptionist and maybe 2 nurses.
