One more new case. Devastating ! Can you believe it ?!? And we are averaging 1.1 new cases over the last 7 days. How will we survive ? That’s the equivalent of 5000 daily new cases on the mainland. And let’s not forget that all the current Covid hospitalizations are using 2% ! Can you believe it ? 2% ! of our small islands hospital bed capacity.
I am so glad we opted out of the safe travels program. Even it meant all those people working in the tourism industry sitting at home without a job during the holidays. Who needs a merry Christmas anyway. Bah humbug !
NO sympathy, no aloha, for anyone who is traveling right now during the peak of a pandemic. If you are in an airplane, catching the virus is all but certain. And then your infected arse brings it back into your own community. Get a clue people!
