What would be interesting to know is if any of the travelers tested (934) tested positive for the virus? With all the pre-travel testing, I can't imagine that there were a lot of positive tests.

Honestly, I believe that active cases are declining pretty much everywhere; the media in the US is hyping new cases and total cases.

Media is not the issue and cases will begin to ascend again as a result of Labor Day activities in another two weeks or so. Dr. Fauci is forecasting a very difficult period starting in the late fall through the winter of 2021 as we all begin to move inside.

Also 193,000 + deaths is nothing to take lightly, especially when deaths are back over 1,000 a day and the prediction is for 200,000 deaths by the first week of October.

Think its a bit early and premature to be spiking the football on this deadly virus.

I am in agreement with you Georgia. More testing (accurate or not) will increase the numbers.

In speaking with a local and long-time island friend yesterday, he said we are going to have to live with this and go forward. It is not a matter or rebuilding like after a hurricane. Tourism on the island has been pretty much dead since March. Unless tourists can start returning in decent numbers, the island is doomed.

More testing will obviously increase the numbers...both positive and negative. It's the percentage of positive cases that is important....and "believing the cases are declining" doesn't mean they are. Anyone can look at data and actually see what the facts are...no need to believe anything.

Cases ARE declining in many areas that are responsibly trying to prevent the spread. Now we just have to convince the below 40 crowd that they are in the highest increase group.

No question the way the media is reporting on this is harmful/deadly. The people that are listening to the media and then acting based on their anxiety are literally KILLING people (human lives are being harmed and lost as a result (drug abuse, suicide etc...)).
While certainly we can’t ignore the virus the World has to start acknowledging all the devastation that is being caused by our over reaction.

ENOUGH. None of this is about SXM.
