    Channel 1 these unvaccinated people were given treatment,but they are easier to get a second dose of the virus than the vaccinated.Yes Mr.NAN the population is indeed 72,153,what you do not understand a number of people have been tested more than once.I have taken two doses of the vaccine but I have been tested 3 times,every test is counted as one.Stop behaving like one of those foolish UWP.Look how Alex Bruno took them for a ride.He told them they had 14 sure seats in the 2019 election,the only person who was better for UWP was Jesus Christ,even RATTLESNAKE Rodney was onboard.When UWP lost 3 seats and 1,163 votes Alex formed his own party.

    Confused by the 81914 total as at June 9 2021 Dominica’s population was 72,153.

    Does this mean the entire Island plus some have now been tested?

      Guess the figure also incorporates visitors to the island.

      81914 is the total number of tests carried out. Not the number of people tested. One person can be tested multiple times and it would be counted in the total number of tests conducted and not shown as individual tests. If the number was individual tests conducted, it would mean the entire population would have been tested at least once but not many people are making themselves available for random testing unless they’re showing symptoms. Hope this explanation make it clearer to you.

    Dominica’s Covid Recovery rate as of October 12, 2021 (excluding the active cases):

    3801 recovered cases / 4113 confirmed cases x 100 = 92.4%

    (NB: These high recovery rates from covid are in line and consistent with global recovery rate figures from covid)

    Since the vast majority of the 4113 confirmed cases in Dominica are among unvaccinated people, can somebody PLEAAASEEEE explain to me how so many of these ‘defenseless’ ‘unprotected’ unvaccinated people were able to recover from covid without any vaccine?

    After all, ‘the Egyptian pharmako magicians, their minions & servants’ have proclaimed that the vaccines are THE ONLY….THE ONLY SOLUTION to overcome Covid.

    Am I wrong in affirming that God’s natural immune system (which he pre-installed in the bodies of the unvaccinated folks) is functioning quite well in the majority of unvaccinated people in combating the covid virus (without the aid of any vaccine)?

    THE TRUTH IS HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT!!!!!!!

      Here’s your answer. Apparently the 7.6% that did not recover are not related to you, if there were your conclusions would have been different.

      Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 6 Thumb down 6

        What he does not mention is that, even when they clear the virus from their bodies, many go on to suffer long term effects from having been infected. I would rather take my chances with the vaccine rather than rely on immunity from infection.

      (Shaking head in despair) .. You might as well say that because the vast majority of people don’t break their legs there is no need for plaster of paris or xray machines in the hospital.

        @Calibishie Warrior – It appears that you responded to my comment with a non sequitur fallacious line of logic.

        Did you do that to deliberately make me shake my head in despair?

          ‘non sequitur’? You might want to look that up… According to you 7.6% of people don’t recover from Covid. (actually that’s not true .. the figure is lower … but i digress) So you are arguing that 7.6% of poeple getting Covid, which would amount to 2660 people if only half of the population caught it, would be hospitalized or die…. and that’s acceptable to you.
          Thankfully, not following YOUR line of logic ,we have a health system built around the maxim that no one should be abandoned to be sick or potentially sick without care even though the vast majority of us may never need it. At the end of the day Covid 19 gets defeated by brining its R0 factor (look it up) to below a value of 1. There are many ways to do that … but all the rest pale into insignificance compared to vaccines with 70% or more coverage. That is why you message on nonvaccination is flawed and dangerous ..according to you it could kill thousands.

    The number of persons fully vaccinated is still low Consequence of that Dominica will continue to have more active cases , hospitalizations, quarantines and more deaths

        ridiculous false equivalence … the vaccine is NOT only being taken by black people . Injustices to our race cannot be used to justify the unjustifiable … but worse than that it is misleading and disingenuous. An F grade , i’m afraid

      quarantine protocol and covid hospitalization in dominica is based on the phobia generated at the unvaccinated.. this has nothing to do with the persons condition.. because the same way an vax person coming get to go home after an antigen test could be the same way for an unvax.. the only difference is one getting some synthetic juice in there system
