P.M. says hospitals ‘are at breaking point,’ directly addresses anti-vaxxers

Posted: Wednesday, September 15, 2021. 8:09 pm CST.

By Aaron Humes: In addition to announcing tightening restrictions due to COVID-19, Prime Minister John Briceño is tackling the question of individual liberty and freedom versus national safety and wellness.

In addition to the rise in active cases, hospitals and especially the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital are “at breaking point.”

While commending those who have helped to address the issue, the third wave has been aggressive and merciless.

And the Prime Minister was not sparing of anti-vaxxers, whom before, his administration was content to ignore.

28 patients are at the KHMH, ten in intensive care, seven of whom are unvaccinated. The science shows that if you catch COVID-19 it is better to be vaccinated than unvaccinated, yet some refuse.

“Perhaps some of the anti-vaxxers feel that Government must not interfere with their personal liberty and freedom of choice; but Government must protect our children, health care professionals and those citizens who are following the legislation by getting vaccinated and we will do so,” Briceño said, adding that appropriate legislation will be passed to that effect.

To provide relief to exhausted workers, we must all do our part as we did, Briceño said, when he first took office last November in the midst of the second wave.

Without this fire break, daily confirmed cases can rise to 250, hospitalized persons go up to 150, 15 persons in intensive care and up to ten deaths daily (consider that nine were reported over four days in the holiday weekend).

The virus only moves when we take it with us, Briceño said, and we must come together to resolve to reduce our movement and adhere to the protocols and get vaccinated if you can.
