14 more COVID-19 deaths confirmed

FOURTEEN additional people have been added to the nation’s COVID-19 death toll, according to data released by the Ministry of Health yesterday.

This means 330 people have officially died from the disease since the start of the pandemic.

Eleven of the newly recorded deaths are from New Providence and the patients ages range from 33 to to 84-years-old. Seven of the New Providence deceased cases were women and four were men. The deaths occurred between August 13 to 16.

The other three deceased cases are Abaco residents: a 41-year-old Abaco woman who died on August 17; a 52-year-old Abaco man who died on August 15; and a 55-year-old Abaco woman who died on August 13.

The Ministry of Health also said 114 new cases were recorded on August 18. Ninety-nine of those cases are in New Providence.

The country now has 16,962 confirmed COVID-19 cases, however, only 2,961 are active.

Health officials said 149 COVID-19 patients are in hospital while 16 of those cases are in the Intensive Care Unit.

By comparison to the 330 deaths from COVID-19 since the pandemic began, the number of deaths from our country's other leading causes of mortality during the same period have been as follows:

Heart Disease - greater than 800 deaths; Cancer - greater than 600 deaths; External Causes (Accidents, Violence and Poisonings) - greater than 400 deaths; Stroke - greater than 230 deaths; Diabetes - greater than 200 deaths; AIDS - greater than 170 deaths.

And the total number of rape incidents during this same period exceeded 800.

This information should help add some perspective to all of the wrongful scaremongering that's been going on about COVID-19.

Food is killing us faster than COVID

Can't help but think how many more lives would be saved if our government, rather than just pushing vaccinations, ceased granting business licenses to new fast food establishments and banned the importation of most unhealthy cooking oils used in the frying of foods. Existing fast food establishments should be paying a hefty health tax to help fund our grossly under-resourced public health system.

So another 330 deaths to add to the list is acceptable ? Shouldn't we try and prevent these deaths whatever the cause ?

Since only 400 souls perished by violence or accidents, maybe we shouldn't worry about guns on the streets or wearing seatbelts. Seems like scaremongering to me too.

Not if those efforts make matters worse - murder deaths are up what 67% this year after 4 years of decline. I'm sure loss of income and stress have nothing to do with it. Increase in cancer mortality is up 10-15% in the Uk - we'll never know here but I met a young girl last week from the out island who's father suddenly died because cancer had riddled his body... Another young man lost his brother when a stomach ulcer turned to internal bleeding again diagnostics came to late...this just from interruptions in travel and the extra burden in terms of cost and ease of access from the government panic.

If this was truly about preventing deaths whatever the cost - then smoking, KFC, liquor and cars would all be banned...This is has always been about governments trying cover up the failure of their policies with a magic shot. If virus the virus is defeated naturally without government intervention they cratered our economies for no good reason. They become liable for lockdown deaths and destruction of livelihoods. Something they want to prevent at any cost - including your freedom and right to choose.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the rates you mentioned are just 12 months of deaths versus COVIDS 1.5 years...

COVID only killed 140 in 2020 and is up to 180 this year. (Bear in mind they are of course throwing in a lot of other causes into the covid bucket..given the WHO death coding requirements)

Rates mentioned by me are based on an extrapolation to 18 months of the latest available annual data compiled and published by the Health Information and Research Unit of the Department of Statistics. All of the death rates are therefore in respect of the 18-month period to date for comparison purposes.

Thanks for eliciting the clarification.

All avoidable without vaccination. Just required proactive ddcision makers. so sad.

... that is speculative! We do not know if these persons died WITH or FROM covid. It seems to me these deaths are being recorded before autopsies and as a result the numbers are inflated. I would expect a more concise breakdown including pre-existing medical conditions, smokers etc. in the reporting. Throwing everything in one basket is unscientific and unacceptable!

This is first article that I have seen from a mainstream media that admits what many of us 'skeptics' that have commented on this paper have been saying for months - vaccination ain't cutting the mustard. It doesn't last, boosters are coming but we don't know if the booster will last either.

With that said the entire premise of the of vaccination passport and thrust of emergency orders is pointless...maybe that is why the FNM are rolling the dice...the writing is on the wall...

Most of the editorial staff of the npr media organization are very much in favour of the creation of a new vaccine dependent global society. You will note the article you provided a link to makes no mention whatsover of the robust naturally immunity developed by most unvaccinated persons who have been infected with COVID-19 and fully recovered. That's always a tell tale sign of the experimental vaccine pushers. And I will leave it for you to guess who provides the npr media organization with most of its funding by way of 'donations'.
