Weekend Reading

  • Please see yesterday’s post for our suggested weekend reading
  • If you’ve finished reading yesterday’s suggested links, here’s something else to look at. Everyone, from world renowned epidemiologists to Facebook friends, has been looking to the Spanish Flu of 100 years ago for comparison. This article is quite short but if you follow all the reference links can be a substantial read.

COVID-19 Update-April 24

Dear Colleagues,

Thanks again for providing feedback, which is always appreciated.

Today’s table has been extended to include quite a few other Caribbean countries. Source for this additional data was Worldometers. I will cross reference with local Governments sources over the next couple of days. However, the table gives a useful comparison of what is happening in the region. The population column was derived from Countrymeters.info (appeared to be more up to date than Worldometers re:  the population).

I have highlighted those countries previously tracked where members are located.
