The Minnis government mishandled the Covid Pandemic after vaccines were introduced.

The Minnis Administration mishandled the Covid Pandemic after the vaccines were made available. . Apparently they dropped everything in favor of the vaccines, rather than using the vaccines to strengthen their already effective arsenal. Vaccinated persons were given license to wander untested and, in some cases without masks throughout the country, tourists were allowed to enter likewise. And when groups of vaccinated persons said they wanted to party, the PM said ‘party on.’ Party like it’s 1999 and no Covid. . So now the cases have skyrocketed, hospitalizations are at the maximum capacity and deaths have increased. Untested, vaccinated persons were super spreaders who wreaked havoc in this country over the past few weeks. And Dr Fauci after again going from his mask off, mask on routine of flip flopping, admits that a vaccinated person who has experienced a breakthrough of the virus can have as much or even more viral load than a non vaccinated person. And his potential to spread is likewise. Very fertile.
. So despite the skyrocketing numbers of new cases in this country, Dr Nakia Forbes admits there have been few re-infections. This is a good thing because it means that persons who had the virus and recovered now have natural immunity to it, at least in the short term. So no need to rush to take the vaccines that are (reportedly) in short supply. Allow those who may be more at risk and wish to take the vaccines. . SOME SAY THE VACCINES CAUSED THE DELTA STRAIN: and since this variant is most prevalent in countries and populations that are more highly vaccinated, this argument may hold water. BUT in the 1918 Spanish Flu, the fourth wave was also the most contagious of all, with the potential to cause the most deaths. And, like the Delta variant it started in Europe. It was also fast-moving. It crossed continents to the Americas, then silently disappeared. Let us pray!

Well I used to listen to Dr. Forbes.

But no more since she said it is allowed to mix vaccines.

I hesitated to take the vaccine because I thought they were going to run out. They did run out.

Now they are going to mix it.

Thus mixing thing started in India when they vaccinated a group of illiterate villagers.

Sorry, this is not science.

And Biden was on tv asking merchants not to serve the unvaccinated and still talking about thd pandemic of the unvaccinated.

While in college studying Medicine my microbiology professor took mischievous me bright as a bulb in his class along with three other students to tour a FDA medical test facility. Trust me. Animal testing first is a blessing. The things I saw. FDA has not approved these vaccines. They are authorized by politicians and FDA overridden. If you all could see what cosmetics go through on non human test subjects skin first. And outcomes. Follow our nurses union who we entrust our lives to, and wait.

People are partying and mingling like COVID was over! The numbers should skyrocket in another 2 weeks.

Minnis is just looking for another excuse to extend his emergency powers. Lord knows how sad a day that will be for him. In the meantime, our largest and most important trading partner, South East Florida, has declared that the pandemic is over. No masks, no social distancing, no vaccine mandates or passports. The folks over there are getting on with their lives and there has not been a surge that the mainstream media panic merchants had wished for. The folks over there are also booking vacations to come over here and spend their money and is only a matter of time before word gets out that they are still being harassed by covid cops and barred entry from restaurants and bars because they don't have a vaccine passport tucked in their bikini.

While government is trying to shove the vaccine down everyones throats, the most egregious thing is the one sided reporting that totally omits the deaths and injury caused by the vaccines and the huge ongoing protest against it in Europe!

This lop sided reporting causes a lot more hesitancy than anything else because it makes people believe even more so that the government isn't being honest.

Trusting government has ALWAYS proven to be a bad idea as evidenced by the state of our country and majority of citizens.

We must all be slaves to the fear narrative then subject the population to vaccinate knowing we get the same result as Iceland. Seychelles, Denmark, UK and Israel. Globally data shows that the vaccinated are heavy spreaders and become infected. The new salvation is that you will not get as sick. Also after the vaccine dies off in six months you will require a third shot. Moving forward herd infection only began after massive vaccinations and the cycle rolls on as billions are picked up by the vaccine, testing and health visa industry. Now that the CDC has commanded PCR tests divide results into flu, cold and Covid the case count would go down 98%.

Nations not vaccinated have not gone through surges. It would be a shame for vaccinations to continue knowing what we know now especially that healthy individuals and children will become spreaders.

Please send the link to the Lancet or one of those peer reviewed publications that state that vaccinated persons are the problem for the spreading as you are implying.

Thank you, great articles. Clearly shows that the vaccinated must also continue to wear masks and get tested to stop the spread.

The Iceland article shows that the vaccination appears to reduce the effect of the virus but not the spread.

I also note that they are talking about an additional shot for those who got the J&J vaccine.
