      SARS CoV 2, the virus that that causes Covid, is different than the influenza virus. Even though they are both viruses that infect the respiratory tract, SARS CoV 2 is much more highly contagious and so spreads more easily than influenza. Seemingly it effects more tissues and systems of the body as well.

    Stop blaming this on the tourist only. Much more locals is infected than the numbers is showing. Thing is, a lot of locals is infected with COVID but they refuse to get tested or say anything. Bet a few of the locals that were at the fish fete is infected and spread the virus to the vaccinated and the non vaccinated that was in the crowd. Watch another flare up coming soon to the BVI.

    If only we were more like Puerto Rico. They have one of the highest Covid vaccination rates. They’re going to have a healthier population than many other island countries, a better tourist season which will be appreciated by the folks who book holidays there, as well as boost their economy, and they’ll be saving more of their grandmothers and grandfathers lives. They’ve stepped up to this crisis as a nation united for the public good. We should learn from them.
