Covid-19

I urge my fellow Jamaicans to take the vaccine. I have taken both and in another week or so I will take the booster shot. Please stop listening to people like Buju Banton and Zizzla who have no idea what they are talking about and should stay in their corner, it is their right not to take the shots but they should shut up. The sooner you take the shot the sooner the country can reopen. Last night I watch a full house cheering on the the US Football team and our team will play home games in an empty stadium. That hurt my heart because my fellow Jamaicans following the wrong people. Covid-19 is dead serious. Walk Good.

Covid Comments.

Alan Searchwell and Anthony you are misguided Jamaicans. First off the Flu (Influenza) is NOT caused by the Corona Virus, it is caused by the Influenza Virus and it is much different and definitely less deadly. The Flu is killing less people because of masks and social distance has drastically reduced it. Now for your comments Anthony about Ivermectin and Hydroxychloroquine. DO NOT do these under any circumstances. They do not help, they can in some case make you sicker. Some have even died because of taking them. It is fake news that these drugs do any good at all. None of the true experts have ever recommended these. When Donald Trump suggests medical treatment, that should be your first clue that it is fake. He bought a bunch of stocks on the company that makes Hydroxychloroquine and then told everyone that it works. Why so he could make money and he has. Don't be a fool, Jamaicans are smarter than most Americans. Prove it and get vaccinated. I have not been to Jamaica in 2 years, after having been there 15 times. I miss you and want to come back. My wife has a compromised immune system and although vaccinated we still have to be careful. The sooner your numbers come down, the sooner we will come back to our second home.

Vacinne

To all my friends in Jamacia PLEASE GET VACCINATED. If not for you but for your children and older adults.

Vaccins work. Please stay safe and healthy.

COVID-19 Concern

As a Jamaican living abroad, I am VERY concerned for my family in Jamaica. The fact that when the first set of vaccines came and hardly anyone wanted to take it and they had to THROW AWAY VACCINES tells me that people have been misguided by the Sizzlas and Bujus of the world.

As a result, people are now acting after the fact to the uptick in cases and deaths as if this virus was a joke.

PEOPLE OF JAMAICA- PLEASE GET THE VACCINE WHENEVER IT'S AVAILABLE!!

COVID-19 Communication

I'm concerned, but not excessively because I'm fully vaccinated, practice social distancing, sanitise frequently, and always wear a mask at work and in public. Also, fortunately, I can opt to work from home. I pray that my fellow Jamaicans see their responsibility in keeping COVID-19 under control.

More is known about treatment

I always thought the advice to isolate and quarantine unless you need medical attention was nonsense. Now, more and more doctors are coming to the same conclusion. Generous doses of immune system boosting supplements have been recommended by wise doctors from the very start of this pandemic and now they have even more weapons in their arsenal like ivermectin and fluvoxamime among others. Even for those at high risk, following the protocols of doctors like those who formed the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance should keep you healthy and alive!

Concern about current Covid-19 measures in Ja.

We are being pennywise and pound foolish. Delta variant is knocking at Jamaica's tourism and other doors, yet, we act as if it will make a detour from invading our shores. Get this: we are "nice, 'hortical' and resilient black people" entitled to wi dance. Never mind seh, the UK, France, Italy, the US, Phuket, Portugal, Indonesia and Suriname nah tek no chance.
Trus meh, "Jamaica, No Problem"!...Next month, Andrew, Chris, Jacqueline and Melody who have nerves of steel; ah goh mash dung any blastid new wave

not more concerned

I am not more concerned about the Covid 19 than in March, because some vaccines are available and if the people do their part as well as the Government is doing theirs, then there is cause for optimism. The sad part is that some believe it is all on the government.

covid 19 concern

I am more concerned now because I do not see the level of concern on the part of the Government that I saw then.

COVID

The reason why COVID is much more scary is because unlike the flue/cold almost everyone can see or tell that you have a cold, but with COVID by the time someone realize that you are sick you have already infected probably 10 other people who have no clue that you were carrying it and they may do the same thing, and this is why I find it so scary and Jamaicans should really think long and hard of what they are doing and follow the health ministry advise wear mask and keep their distance no party gathering.

COVID-19

Both the Influenza (flu) and COVID-19 are caused by the corona virus. I noticed that people are not dying from the flu anymore, so to speak. I noticed that both the prime ministers of Canada and the UK had the virus but were fine after quarantine. Prince Charles and William had it and were fine, Donald Trump and his son had it and they are fine, Usain Bolt and Tom Hanks had it and they were fine after quarantine. Apparently if you have COVID-19 there is no treatment, you are merely told to quarantine. The Prime Minister of Jamaica said everyone is going to get COVID-19, so I am not sure why so much emphasis is on the virus. The emphasis should be on government corruption and crime. The amount of people in Jamaica dying from murders is about 6 times the death caused by COVID-19. The so-called pandemic is the murder rate in Jamaica and not COVID-19.

Why covid is less scary

I think most of the covid-19 deaths were preventable. Corona virus treatment in the US has gotten to the point where even with a huge number of reported cases but their deaths have not increased to levels they were in april. Their people are spenting less time in the hospital, less go on ventilators and for less time. Comparing that to jamaica where the deaths AND cases seems to follow each other as if treatment is the same as its been since the beginning. I would emplore our govt to look back in the zinc, azythromycin and hydroxychloroquine combo; get into contact with Dr Robin Armstrong out of Texas, he's been treating the elderly with the combo.

Take your zinc and vitamin C

COVID-19

Although there is much research and talk about a vaccine, there are many unknown factors that cause anxiety. I believe there will be a break-through but in the meantime we should continue to adhere to the protocols as outlined by the Ministry of Health as well as the World Health Organization.
