Like yuh want them go Hyatt.

Either serve jail or get fined a 10k or more. If you are covid+ and breaking quarantine, 50k.

As Max say, after some examples made and pockets get touch, people will fall in line.

Some people trying to bring race into this by naking this a doubles v 1% thing. All street food have been discouraged by WHO. Kfc etc are not street foods. Gov't didnt ban doubles, they banned gathering of crowds.

A doubles man will always encourage crowds or even traffick. Also a doubles seller mainly use their hands to prepare, handle and sell their food. This food is mainly eaten via the hands as well providing a direct pathway for the virus to enter the body.

Non essential people are not suppose to be outside except to access essential services. These essential services have workers who still need to buy food etc whilst working hence curbside pickup and take away.

Doubles sellers are technically loiterers because they set up a temporary structure at side of the road(tent etc). By that very nature they are in violation of the new regulations concerning gatherings.

I don't know why they can't just have a 6pm - 5am curfew. If you out past that time you better have a damn compelling reason to be out. If you loitering then spend a night in the cells as would happen if they were drunk and disorderly.
You have things to do get it done in time or do it tomorrow.
Trinis respond to the stick, not the carrot. So a fixed time even Trinis can understand to be indoors by, because heaven knows Trinis can't seen to comprehend abstract things like "common sense" and "social distancing".
Plain and simple. You out between 6pm and 4am. Your a$$ grass.

maybe we don't need that level of lockdown. You can put everybody under house arrest, but at some point you into the realm of diminishing returns. You might stop an additional handful of people from getting it, but at what economic and societal costs.

From the case numbers, we are doing well enough. Leaving out the Balandra group, our total case count is only up to 54 cases. Keep that in perspective, we shut down the country for a week for a total of 54 cases. We have no community spread here by the latest evidence. The number of local-spread cases are in single digits.

So maybe we don't need a lockdown, a SoE or a curfew. Maybe our current measures are working fine enough. Maybe even so well we can go back to work in a week to two and relax some restrictions. Like allowing funerals that involve more than 5 people. The current measures are already very draconian, keep that in mind.

Exactly, and even a few minutes of congestion can go along way.

The goal is to completely, not kinda kinda, compleeeetely stop the crowds for at least 14 days and take it from there.

All who sick and dying, show yourselves.

Everyone else, for heavens, stay put.

We need that permanent wake up call badly.

IMO the Government has weakened its authority by vacillating and making some questionable decisions.

Ah mean, they're threatening to jail people who are out and about without just cause BUT in the same breath talking about releasing those already in jail to reduce spread due to overcrowding.

Honestly, who's going to take that threat seriously?

And even if they charge people, they expect to recover $ 50,000 from who...the fella in he brok-up old B13? They lucky if they get 50¢...:|

even if is allergies - u can also be infected & asymptomatic- while d virus not making u sneeze any sneeze or cough could expel a huge amount of droplets with the virus. I cyah blame them.

last week someone about 4-5 feet behind me awaiting food outside hearty foods arima had started coughing and i move away after a few seconds- next day i get diarrhea. at first i thought maybe d food i bought there was bad. but after a week i was still getting stomach discomfort so i call d covid hotline. dey tell me yes that is a symptom and i should leave mih tail home for a few days- though the 14 days should have started when i first got it.

The curve has in fact, steeply increased in this last 2 weeks with detected infections and deaths in Trinidad.

As long as the quarantine is followed there should be no large uncontrolled numbers. Just a little discipline by our population and we will be lucky to get through this.

https://www.bing.com/covid/local/trinidadandtobago

looks more like a linear progression of about 5 cases/day in the last 2 weeks

many of the balandra group preparing for discharge, so we might even seen the curve go downwards

Steady rise in sale of sex toys
By CNC3 Editor -March 29, 2020


by Joel Julien

Since the arrival of COVID-19 on our shores, there has been a steady rise in the sale of sex toys locally, culminating in a massive climax last week, sex therapist Giriraj “Dr Raj” Ramnanan has revealed.

Ramnanan said rechargeable vibrators, penis pumps, and toys that could be enjoyed by couples have been the top sellers.

“What I have noticed because of this virus and is that a lot of people have to be by themselves and of course people have their needs and wants when it comes to their sexual health,” Ramnanan said.

But because in this country a “deputy” is considered essential as per the calypso by Seadley “Penguin” Joseph, Ramnanan said things were affected when this country recorded its first positive COVID-19 case.

“Remember a lot of Trinidadians have what you call a deputy or they have extra sexual activities taking place, for example, visiting houses of ill-repute all that has started to cut down about three weeks ago,” Ramnanan said.

“People don’t want to interact so the only way that they could really be satisfied in whatever exploits they may have is to self indulge which is masturbation or indulge with their partner at home in a particular way that may spice things up,” he said.

This has resulted in an increase in sales he said.

“So over the last two weeks, there was a steady increase in sales with people coming to buy all their enhancers and their toys and some who are regulars in buying toys they would look for something new, something more exciting,” Ramnanan said.

“Sales increased about 10 to 20 per cent in the first week of this thing happening and within the last week there was a tremendous spike of about a hundred per cent,” he said.

“That goes to show that people want to take care of their sexual health they want to make sure that they enjoy themselves while being under this lockdown and it is nothing to be frowned upon because sexual health is very important to individuals both psychologically and physically,” Ramnanan said.

Ramnanan said he believes the call for people to stay home will help couples currently experiencing problems in their relationship.

“You have individuals who will have to spend a little more time with their partner this is going to strengthen a lot of relationships this is going to help persons to overcome the little difficulties that they may have had in the past with their partner in terms of sexual compatibility and whatnot,” he said.

He said the sales figures showed that.

“There were very little selfish toys being sold there were more toys that partners could work with,” he said.

Ramnanan said while he personally has no issue with staying home he believes he offers an “essential service” for hundreds.

“I agree with the shutdown I’m just saying that something could have been done because of the clients that we have out there who need their sexual health. I am happy to stay at home and isolate myself and that’s fine because I am abiding by the law but I also have to think about my clients that I know that are in the hundreds who have a problem,” he said.

“It’s like a Catch 22, damned if you do, damned if you don’t,” Ramnanan said.

Ramnanan said he has been doing consultations via telephone and Skype.

He said his clinics stepped up their sanitisation measures to help curb the spread of COVID-19.

“Two weeks ago we were sanitizing our clinics, we were making sure that every client that came in were sanitised, we use alcohol-based wipes, even the money handed to us we sprayed going into the draw and sprayed coming out of the draw so we did a lot of internal sanitising because of the nature of the business also because we deal with health, whether it is sexual health or other health we deal with health. So we took it upon ourselves to be responsible,” he said.

"you suffer when you have this at home" - Chris Cuomo, the CNN anchor with COVID19.

"It is not ethically responsible to tell people 80% have mild symptoms" "it is not easy" "The beast comes at night" "pain in my face" "headaches" "vision in my right eye is affected" (sinus pressure) "can't sleep" "categorical experiences that are not dreams" (fever dreams)

"i am a waste" "i sleep 10 hours a night" "i walk constantly because I'm petrified of getting pneumonia"

He previously mentioned rigors- feeling very cold and shivering (teeth clanking) when fever temperatures comes on.

apparently chicken soup is a good treatment. I should've bought that instead of the 40 cans of red beans.
