Not looking good. More info promised tomorrow, but it surely looks like Christmas get-togethers did not help...

And make that 46 active cases for Jan 2.
More restrictions have been instituted. There are no vaccinations on island yet.
An additional surge is anticipated following the New Years Eve socialization.

Thanks for keeping us posted on the situation. Sad to hear it's spreading quickly there.

So, do we call the new year '2021,' or '2020 Junior?'

So sad to hear of the spread just as there is hope with the vaccine. My wish is that, somehow, the island finds the resources to provide vaccines to the population.

This is very discouraging news. I have had trouble finding information. Seems like the majority of new cases are being attributed to large gatherings. It doesn't seem like they have had very many at risk visitors. Anyone with better information?

Thanks, you could have just attempted to answer my question, where are all the new cases from?
LOL. I'm tempted to answer that the info is in the links, in detail.
The short answer is a few from Curacao, the rest are local.
