                  COVID-19 Update: “We need two more weeks”

                  MAIN | By Correspondent April 13, 2020

                  WILLEMSTAD - Epidemiologist Dr. Izzy Gerstenbluth indicated today during the daily briefing that the confirmed COVID-19 cases remain at 14 and there is still 1 inconclusive who will be tested again. 10 are safe now and 3 are still active (1 is in the hospital).
                  Dr. Gerstenbluth says that the aim is not to 'flatten the curve', but to crush it. This to prevent the healthcare system from collapsing and too many people dying, who do not even have the COVID-19 virus. Also, to prevent massive panic and a total 'collapse' of the economy. “We don't have time to sit and see what happens!”
                  “We are a small country and it can go very fast. If you sit too long and wait to see what happens, it may already be too late. Yes, the economy is shrinking now, but if this gets out of hand, the contraction is more dramatic,” says the doctor.
                  6 percent of the tests that were done were positive, and Dr. Gerstenbluth reiterated that they don't have more capacity to test. “6 percent is not much, and we have few people who report with symptoms.” If you crush quickly, you can move in quickly' (crush the curve) is Gerstenbluth's idea.
                  “We've had a few new cases in the past 2 weeks, not many but there are certainly a few more. If we have it well under control, we can do it differently. This week we will look at how it went through the surveillance system and whether the unknown cases do not lead to an outbreak. But we need this week to prepare in case of an outbreak. Because there are definitely more cases out there, but it is still not an outbreak because we don’t see that in our hospital,” says Dr. Gerstenbluth.
                  Dr. Gerstenbluth summarizes that they are going to the next phase, but the system must be ready; “we should be able to do more tests; but meanwhile, everyone has to keep their distance.”

                    WILLEMSTAD - Dr. Izzy Gerstenbluth announced this morning that there are no known new infections, even though the 1 that is inconclusive is being treated as a confirmed case. But the official count is still at 14 corona infections in Curaçao. Twenty people are still being monitored because they returned to Curacao before the borders were closed.
                    Dr. Gerstenbluth indicated that there is no major local spread. There are a few local infections, “so we cannot open completely at once. No country was prepared for this, everyone has the same problems; especially the care capacity.”

                      COVID-19 Update: More testing in the coming days
                      MAIN | By Correspondent April 17, 2020

                      WILLEMSTAD - This morning, during the daily briefing, epidemiologist Dr. Izzy Gerstenbluth indicated that 269 people have been tested so far, 106 men and 163 women. The number of confirmed cases is still at 14 with 1 inconclusive who is being considered a confirmed case but not added to the official count. One has died, one is still in the hospital, 10 are safe and 3 are active.
                      18 are being actively monitored and 12 are still in quarantine because they returned to the island after the measures were announced.
                      The doctor also announced that starting this Monday they want care to return to normal. More is being tested to detect possible 'pocket' infections, loose infections. The transmission is easier to trace thanks to the lockdown.
