More people were admitted to hospital for coronavirus during the week of February 13-19, authorities …


  1. Basically having almost halved testing (43%) since opening for tourism, for the first time since May 14th, testing now exceeds that date’s testing number….by 21%.

    During lockdown, high numbers needed for restrictive measures.

    Low numbers were then needed to go tourist green. Big fail.

    So full circle back to high numbers for restrictive measures again.

    • Maybe it’s high numbers of testing because the govt is making everyone get tested for every social move they make now? And I agree with KTG that all the island tests were declared before thinking it out logistically. But they do make it up as they go they’ll revise when chaos emerges…

      And I read today that most of the ppl who attended the Euro championship in the UK at Wembley caught Covid, no surprise there. Apparently many ppl fudged their self tests, plus all the mixing later at pubs and on the tube. Starting to look like that experiment didn’t work so well. And the Netherlands is having high cases due to opening nightclubs only for vaccinated and self tests too soon…maybe we can’t go back to crowding yet?

    • Stupid, people test themselves because they feel sick not because the government tells them to!
