6 new cases of COVID-19 Sunday

LIHU‘E — The state Department of Health Kaua‘i District Health Office reported six new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday.

Sunday’s cases are residents, one adult and five children under the age of 18. Two cases are related to inter-island travel and three are considered community-acquired. All six cases are close contacts of previously-announced cases.

Active cases are in isolation, and close contacts are being identified, offered testing and directed to quarantine. Investigations are ongoing. Sunday’s cases bring the number of active cases to 13, with 377 cumulative cases.

Free testing at the Kaua‘i War Memorial Convention Hall in Lihu‘e is available weekdays from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on a first-come, first-served basis. Testing is also available through primary care physicians, hospitals and urgent-care clinics.

If you have symptoms or are feeling sick, you should isolate yourself immediately, stay away from household members and not go out — including to work or school — unless seeking testing or getting health care.

Residents aged 18 and older are eligible for any vaccine available at pharmacies, hospitals and clinic locations. The Pfizer vaccine has been authorized for use in those 12 years of age and older, and appointments are available at Kaua‘i hospitals and pharmacies for this age group.

Vaccination is free and widely available on the island, including on weekends and evenings and pop-up vaccination opportunities at community sites. Many vaccination sites accept walk-ins. For details, visit kauai.gov/vaccine.

    Did any of them show symptoms? Get sick?

    Once again, no mention of whether or not the victims were vaccinated. If this detail is not revealed, how will we know if the “vaccines” are effective or not? Another question remains unanswered; out of the 377 cases reported on this island, how many people have actually been hospitalized? Real answers please.

    How many of these cases are sports related? How can you tell? Look at the receipts they spend. On sports. If this is the case, then by any means attribute each case to COVID-19 by way of household contact. This should say that the disease or transmission of it, is heredity. If you have a kid playing football, the dad can catch it. It is a physical thing. How do they handle a case like this?

    Isolate. Then monitor. The dad is still not out of the woods. He still may catch the virus. Vaccines would do it.

    It is a family thing. I have a friend who was down my path. He was from Pakistan. He graduated from MIT. He now lives in Massechusetts. He is an electrical engineer. I’m not an engineer, but take on some attributes as him. Anyway, the vaccines are a different matter. You cannot match it against a microchip. Two different things.

    This thing isn’t decreasing. What is up? I’d say something else is happening.

    How many of these scary CASES(!!) have resulted in hospitalization?


    1. truthbeknown June 14, 2021 4:10 pm Reply

      Da Shadow, since the powers that be seem reluctant to share that statistic, I think we can safely assume that the number is ZERO! The truth is 94% of the people experience either no symptoms or a mild cold-like condition, with headache, and/or fever that lasts for one to two weeks. An early dose of Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine with vitamin C, zinc and vitamin D has been suggested by many doctors around the world to help speed up the recovery. Granted, those of us with two or more co-morbidity factors are at a higher risk of having serious complications and should take the proper precautions to be safe. I’ve always said that the mask thing is backwards. Healthy people should not be wearing a mask. The only people who should wear a mask are people who are not feeling well. Instead of the “virtue signaling” scenario, we could then recognize the people who are ill and avoid them. Common sense versus paranoia. I also think we should call cotton masks COVID collection devices as they absorb the water droplets from sneezes and coughs from other people, enabling you to continually inhale the residue till you wash the mask. Think about it. Does that really make sense?

    Nobody ever heard of Andy Roddick. Just in case they wanted to compare him being taller than Roger Federer. And also winning 1 US open.

    The players still need to check all the time. Hawaii has to remain the same and not get out of control. The numbers are increasing. Somebody needs to realize this. If not you, than who.

    Proper English in some of your responses please. It’s like trying to understand “Crazy Joe” when he speaks. I think some of you need to come to the mainland (Colorado) and see how good it feels without the crazy restrictions that Hawaii still has in place. I’m amazed that 6 cases of Covid makes headlines, and people are literally freaking out. It’s not a death sentence people!

    Jeff,
    When you say “Crazy Joe” I assume you mean crazy “YuCalJoe”; a frequent contributor to these discussions who is not even a Hawaii resident but, like you, can’t seem to stay in his own lane. We neither want nor need either of your input thank you.
