As of yesterday, the number of recorded active cases numbered 155.

According to Chief Medical Officer Dr Ronald E. Georges, in an update on July 4, 2021, a total of 752 tests were run on July 2, 2021, with a further 118 samples testing positive for COVID-19.

    I don't see a problem with government reopening of the boarders, we need to reboost our economy. The problem lies with the decision not to have fully vaccinated persons quarantine hence posing a threat to everything that the government themselves have been working so hard to maintain and to keep the Territory safe. I hope government will retratagize and reimpose the quarentine for everyone coming into the Territory fully vaccinated or not.

    How do you tell an unvaccinated person to leave your house without offending them. Everyone else in the house is fully vaccinated, but this one person (not a blood relative) has no intention of taking the vaccine but frequents the bars regularly. I would prefer if the person got vaccinated rather than asking rhem to leave, but l am tired of encouraging them to take it. My mom is in her 60s and it is a grave concern for me

        Read again. the figures said 55% are unvaccinated. 17% VACCINATED. Most likely this 17 % are those who got the shot and thinks it is magic and start being reckless before the vaccine become effective. People must be sensible, the vaccine, although it is very effective is not 100% effective. In fact very few medication is 100% effective.

      Why should employers pay their unvaccinated staff to go into lockdown? They had the choice to take the vaccine as we all did. Most of the 40% vaccinated are the expats and the work permit holders who have to work- and who pay for the NHI and their taxes. They cant get a work permit unless they have paid and need certificates from the NHI, SSB and the Inland Revenue. The 60% unvaccinated are mostly the belongers. So how many of the 273 cases are unvaccinated and how many belongers ? How many are unvaccinated tourists and how many are the work permit holders?

      Your comment is exactly why we are having the outbreak to begin with. You sound like one of these politicians. You are basically implying that we should pay people to stay home and do nothing and collect pay because they failed to take care of themselves and get vaccinated. First off, I am a business owner. At the beginning of the pandemic we gave everyone two weeks pay and it was very difficult to do but was the right thing at the time. I don't know what kind of world you live in, but the last year hasn't made it any easier for anyone to be able to afford to give everyone a two week holiday with a closed down business. The things some of you are suggesting are making it seem like the BVI is turning into some type of communist country.

    Just my thought.
    Doesn't it seem strange that when you go into the room to get your test, that the same gloves is used to go up your nose? Let me break it down. Someone goes in the room before you to do their covid-19 test. She/he comes out. The nurse says next (yes, in less than a second after the last person leaves).

    Guess what - the room is NOT sanitized after the last person leaves. You go into the room, the person administering the test tells you to take off your mask. Notice that he does not sanitize his hands (gloves). He continues, by getting your liquid, and cotton thingy, and tells you, remove your mask.
    Up your nose, or in front your nose, with the same infected hands in front of your nose.

    What do you think? The last person or persons that came out of that room may burst a sneeze before he left or put on his mask, because of the cotton thingy that went up his nose. Or he may be Covid-19 positive. No one sanitizes the room after you or that person left. Your leave, then nurse tells the next person, Next.

    And yes, it's that quick, the person administering the test DOES NOT sanitize himself. I've in this place (hospital ground) and port of entry three times to know that. I've seen it. There is no sensitization or nothing.

    So what you expect, you're going to have new cases after 14 days, from persons who were last in there negative, but went back in there to test for travel or just precaution, end up being positive.
    And it's from catching the Virus from the testing site. Trust me.

    The person administering the test is protecting himself, not the person who is receiving the test.
    just my thought

      They are to change gloves for every patient. If they don't then politely ask them to change gloves.
      Every healthcare worker knows that you always change gloves for the next patient. Now, sanitizing the room is now a bit ridiculous. You sits in a chair hold your head back and you are out within the seconds. Lets be realistic.

      If you are saying that positive tests results are being caused at the time of test taking because nurses or technicians are not changes gloves or washing hands between patients (which would be against protocol) then you had better be making that statement based on observation with your own eyes and not on “supposing” they haven’t sanitized their hands and changed their gloves. Besides a positive result would not be evident if infection occurred at time of testing. It takes days for an infection to incubate enough to register as positive.
      Stop your conspiracy theories and get vaccinated. Wear your mask to cover your entire nose and mouth. And stop and think. Don’t make s*** up!

    There are too many negative information being spread in the territory and that influence the residents not to be vaccinated against the COVID-19.

Those who are hesitating to take the vaccine, it is time to have a change of heart and take the vaccine.

    It is very sad to see our people are so hesitant about taking the vaccine. I have taken my vaccines and I am fully vaccinates. I can speak with authority because since I have taken mine I have encouraged many persons including my family and friends to do so and and they took theirs. They are healthy and strong. If anyone has any hesitancy about taking the vaccine, as a perquisite he or she should ensure that their nutrition is good, because they may have a mild reaction. However, the nurse will advise that paracetamol tablets be taken if necessary.

    When I looked at the fire works display in America last evening, I was happy because there were large crowds and the people celebrated their freedom from COVID-19. We in this territory are so hesitant to take the vaccine. The crowd in Time Square was larger than the population here. My people if we want to move this country forward, then we must be vaccinated.

    Our Leaders have to make some serious and tough dicisions to move us forward...1/ Unvaccinated front line workers / Civil Servants with the Virus should be quarantine for 14 days unpaid and pay their own medical bill on the basis that they made no effort to safe guard themselves and others, inspite of all the beghing and pleading Givetnment did...2/They show they dont care they are selfish and not deserving of such responsible position,,,,3/, Send some back to their country,,, Let them do what they want there....This is serious, we have to stop joking around..

    Please get vaccinated. It prevents you from getting very ill and drastically reduces transmission of Covid 19
    It will protect the health service.
    If people who are not vaccinated get Covid there is a very high risk of being hospitalised

    We don’t have many ventilators
    Let’s not be like India or Indonesia facing oxygen crisis
    Let’s not lock down creating more mental health issues and poverty

    We have to love with Covid like the rest of the world so please get vaccinated as soon as possible

    Sooo about 45% vaccinated in some way and positive. I will put my money on the unvaccinated being infected by the VACCINATED RUNNING WILD NOT FOLLOWING PROTOCOLS.

      Read the statistics again, because you are incorrect. The 45% includes those who have taken only one shot (not fully vaccinated), and a huge number of people whose vax status is unknown. Only 17% were can read, can't you?

    Smallpox 1947- a 150 years prior. ( Scientists started making vaccine). Polio 1955 ( continuous working on vaccines by scientists). Swine Flu 1976, etc. Scientists never stopped working on vaccines, because they know there is always a next one. H1N1 was detected in April 2009 and by September of 2009 there was a vaccine.
