    It will reduce the spread
    You all say this Omnicom is easily spreadable
    So we need to protect the island especially the kids.

      It means more are getting sick than those that are recovering. The document says we had 183 new cases but 68 recovered. So the numbers will increase until the recovered is more than the new cases.

      The only way Father God can help us is if he can get all the people who haven’t been vaccinated and boosted, to use their God-given brains and get vaccinated and boosted. And if he can get everyone to mask with well sealed masks, that cover nose and mouth, that would help too!
      Too many people are walking around here with their noses hanging out of their masks.

        Pfizer CEO:

        “We know the two dosis of the vaccine offer very limited protection if any...”

        In other words; all vaccinated people were conned.

        Whoever falls for the new vaccine they want to release in March is not just stupid but mentally retarded!

        WHO Director Dr. Tedros: "The composition of current vaccines may need to be updated to ensure they continue to provide WHO-recommended levels of protection against infection and disease... a vaccination strategy based on repeated booster doses of the original vaccine composition is unlikely to be sustainable."

        Why on earth would any one who has not had number 1 start now?

    Germany sent a letter to WHO asking them to put a hold on the Vaccine until more evidence of its efficiency can be proven. As it is, the Vaccine is not working as was intended and was told by the manufacturers. #Germany. . .These kind of News get oppressed...

    I am truly embarrassed at how many have succumbed to mass psychosis, which is reaching new highs at the moment. People seem to think that they are literally going to die if they these “variants”. The only thing I’m fearful of is that their gonna put on those towers in America in January (this month). We finally gonna have dead bodies falling randomly especially if you got the you know what

    Mr minisister of health and the entre government the vi do not only need curfew but we need 2 weeks total lock down. Please remember when we had just repente after the first look down when tourist was coming in thought the airport and the water front terminal only and people had been quarantine for 4 or 5 days and once they where negative they would be free to go out? Well we where nice here and hotel tourist was already flowing. I am requesting that our authorities will admite that they drop the Ball when they allow vaccinated persons to come in get tested and once they are negative they are going home please pick up the Ball and let's go back to what was working for us before. And that is quarantine everyone who come on to the bvi 4 to 5 days then have them tested and once they are negative they will be free to go.

      Lockdown and quarantine will erase all the gains we made and wreck the economy and when we open back up Covid will still be here, but other than that, yeah, great idea.

    @Never Gonna Happen, I think you and your kind are mentally retarded people, all of you get your information from social media, and just like you all, they are against the vaccines countries are now starting to take action against your kind. By mid-January, all public servants and employees at state agencies, including national security, will be required to be vaccinated to go to work or they can choose to stay home without pay. QUEBEC, Canada - The Canadian province of Quebec will charge a health tax to residents who are not vaccinated against Covid-19. Quebec, which has seen the highest number of Covid-related deaths in Canada, is currently struggling with a surge in cases. Starting later this month, Greeks over age 60 are being required to pay a €100 (£85; C$142; $113) fine for each month that they remain unvaccinated. Singapore has required Covid patients to pay for their own medical bills if they are not vaccinated. There are hospitals in some countries that are starting to refuse the unvaccinated, Why you guys don't talk that? You don't want to get vaccinated but when you get sick you run to the hospitals, why you don't stay at home and drink your bush tea and see if that will save you. The BVI needs to impose measures on the unvaccinated.

      @ Istime

      Mentally retarded? What an insensitive comment. Mentally retardation should never be ridiculed or belittled!

      Soo what if they charge the unvaccinated a health tax. If that is the price for our freedom should be no issue. Sure they have alcohol tax, cigarette tax, etc. We don't have an issue with that as long as you do not infringe on our choice with vax passports, loss of work etc.

      Japan has decided a different approach and I wish other countries would do the same! This is how a real democracy works:

      Japan is now labeling Covid vaccines to warn of dangerous and potentially deadly side effects such as myocarditis. In addition, the country is reaffirming its commitment to adverse event reporting requirements to ensure all possible side effects are documented.

      Additionally, Japan is emphasizing informed consent and bodily autonomy. Until the coronavirus pandemic, the concept of “informed consent” was considered sacred to healthcare professionals in the West.

      Please note the last part so all those medical officials who are refusing unvaccinated patients.

    Citicorp, give their unvaccinated employees until the end of January to get vaccinated or they will be out of a job. My brother works for American Airlines and employees who refused to be vaccinated is getting their termination of employment letters. No matter how you all are fighting it, you are going to be out of work if you are not vaccinated. It is happening everywhere.

      @ Yes USA

      Biden Mandates regarding private companies that have federal contracts are in the hands of the Supreme court. Anyone who has been paying attention knows that based on the hearings you can see that the right leaning Justices who are in the majority are not for the Mandates and the Liberal ones who are for were spouting misinformation. Those OSHA Mandates most likely will not stand. So American Airlines and other private company employees will get their jobs back.

      Imagine that Kyrie Irving was just asked back to play for the Nets due to the fact of many of their players being out due to covid protocols.

      In Canada :
      "The local government in Ontario, Canada may soon require hospitals to rehire unvaccinated workers due to intense staff shortages as cases rise in the region.

      The Ontario Hospital Association warned the government that it should allow current staff vaccination mandates to stay in place, local outlet the Ottawa Citizen reported on Tuesday".

      Who do they turn to?

      The tide is TURNING. This is a Marathon not a sprint.

    Soon, if you are unvaccinated and need to be airlift out of the territory or go out of the territory for medical care you will not be able to do so.

    Breaking news!

    US Supreme court quash Biden vaccine mandates for Private companies that have federal contracts!

    "Although Congress has indisputably given OSHA the power to regulate occupational dangers, it has not given that agency the power to regulate public health more broadly," the court said in its 6-3 opinion on the vaccine-or-test mandate, which liberal Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan dissented.

    "Requiring the vaccination of 84 million Americans, selected simply because they work for employers with more than 100 employees, certainly falls in the latter category."
