    Again no mention any symptoms, must be none.

    No mention of hospital, must never went.

    No mention doctor, no need.

    No mention prescription drugs, must be no need.

    No mention of PCR FALSE POSITIVE TEST, must be false positive .

    No mention of dangerous vaccine, Must of skipped it, not safe to take a vaccine, safer to get the actual natural virus, besides community needs herd immunity.

    5 people if positive is a step in the right direction towards herd immunity, let’s see 72,000 residents at 5 positive a day, or 34 1/2 years to reach Herd Immunity.

    By then, 34 1/2 years, the Covid-19 virus and Fauci will all be dead, and we will have collectively survived another 34 1/2 more annual flu seasons and fake vaccine scares and advertisements.

    How can we have faith in our first responders, doctors and nurses, when none of them have reported getting the virus with symptoms…seems they would be stupid to risk themselves with vaccime side effects when we need them so dearly.

    First responders, doctors, nurses, virus test givers, if none get the virus, it must mean that only the elderly with chronic end of life diseases (heart, stroke, obesity, diabetes, cancers, Alzheimer’s, kidney lung and liver failure,) taking the multiple toxic and lethal prescription drugs are the only ones dying from the actual virus.

    It’s obviously safer to take care of yourself than let medical care mess you up.

    I wish when a case is travel related, we could receive information where the travel originated. I would wager that it isn’t coming from Duluth.

      Because one was a child, the pediatrician got approval to release flight info:
      Jan. 1/21: Flight HA 47 OAK-HNL.
      And, Jan. 1/21: Flight HA 323 HNL-LIH.

      Would certainly be beneficial if this information was released for every new travel related case.

    Returning residents are just as much risk as incoming visitors. They need to quarantine at at bubble resort and not return to their homes where they interact and expose family members.

    Think before your go off island! Keep Kauai safe!

    Anyone who thinks this is just nature taking its course, think again: this is methodical GENOCIDE perpetuated by Mayor Kawakami and his evil Big Ag friends to ravage the local low-income Kauai community in order to buy out your properties.

    Join the effort to recall Kawakami and install a mayor who actually represent the very residents Kawakami is trying to push out!

    With 13 active cases, why does contact tracing have only 18 contacts in quarantine? That seems like too few contacts under quarantine given there are 13 active cases, and could be dangerous for community spread.
