Trinidad’s decline in cases is not genuine, it merely reflects testing fatigue
Much like Chile, our cases continue on high as our government persists with its ineffectual Vaccination Drive.
A reported fall in daily cases is a deception arising from our population’s weariness with hysterical testing: many people recognizing their symptoms and relevant contact with infected friends/family choose not to test.
As our citizens learn to live in this “new normal”: a callous and crumbling public health sector, destitution, social disintegration and mandatory quarantines that cripple access to effective health care, more and more citizens realize the futility and inconvenience associated with testing and home internment. Results returned 2 weeks after testing, are not only clinically irrelevant, they delay timely health seeking behavior: More and more of our citizens recognize the pointlessness of government testing, and many cannot afford to pay for these tests privately.
