Will be of interest and fear to see if the numbers increase dramatically over the next month or so. Sad that we now just accept the ‘only one’ more has died. It is clearly not so for the families involved but now the rest of us have little shock to such news. Until it is someone we care for.

We need a vaccine, OR in the meantime for the Government to make full head wear to cover our entire heads, with a filter system so we can travel and work in full safety.

They did it with gas masks in the war, and with modern materials easy to wash with hydrogen peroxide etc, cant be ‘that’ hard to make surely. Then we could sit on trains and planes etc, without the need for social distancing and the transport could make a profit, which is near impossible if we have to sit away from others. They need all seats covered by a bottom, not a few.

You are like a rabbit caught in the head lights. You have done no research, because if you had you would have seen on the governments website that they have down graded the virus, as did the cdc ,after testing the virus on surfaces,the results shown that cov19 does not live long enough on surfaces to cause a threat of infection. But general public dont bother researching, just believe what that are soon fed by the liars( government)

Absolutely baffles me how people are ok with having all their rights stripped away for something that’s so far in over 10 weeks affected just 185 people and killed 58 out of a population of 140,000! especially considering the fact that the test is completely unreliable aswell so that’s even assuming they actually had “covid” wake up people you are being scammed big time

You can`t argue away the dead, but maybe the UK as a NATION should consider living slightly more healthily in the future.

You can argue that the death rate globally hasn’t changed in average from last year, you can argue that deaths have been reclassified as covid-19 when in FACT it was not. You can argue that the inventor of the PCR test that is used to test for covid does not actually test for a isolated virus, only a culture of a virus, that of which we live with thousands in our body at any one time, you can argue that that the jump in numbers isn’t due to a bump up in infection but a bump up in the number tested, j could go on and on and on but the point has been made.

Try telling that to the 185 people affected Jake or the family of the 58 that have died! If you think you’re immune or exempt from it, go live your life but if you catch it, don’t come and infect me or my family and friends and don’t put any pressure on our NHS. Leave that to the unfortunate ones that get it due to people like you!

Jake, the reason it’s only killed 58 people so far is BECAUSE we’ve been in lockdown! Think what the number of deaths would have been if we’d all been out there spreading it around.

Your comments Jake make it sound as if we, island residents have been so hard done by! You say 185 cases and 58 deaths out of an island population of 140,000. Really! I would take a guess and say the figures, including deaths would be a damn sight more if we all did not go into lockdown don’t you think? Of course it is no consolation to the families who have lost loved ones to this virus, but we have seen many less cases on this island because of most staying safe indoors. Let’s hope we don’t see the infected numbers “spike” due to the irresponsible “beach goers” not keeping their distance from each other!!!!! God help the poor police once the pubs open.

Yeah Smithy, I can also confirm there are second homeowners and people staying on the island that are not resident, far too many of them. They’re irresponsible, selfish and so arrogant they think that the rules don’t apply to them.

Reply to Anon. Just so you know, I am a key worker and have been going to work from the start of 2020 and will continue to do so. I wish I could stay safe at home and get paid but I can’t. Jake and Visions comments both sound very irresponsible and selfish. Are you both a couple of “deadhead brainless half wits”? Probably. My guess is you are both quite young and don’t care about anyone else, only your own selfish sorry arses. This attitude is what is wrong in this world now, all about you, you, you.

non disclosed, anon and jake are all idiots. Selfish, ignorant, arrogant, pig headed, you think you might be immune, lets see you say “oh it’s just like flu or it’s a conspiracy” when you get it. You obviously don’t care at all that people have lost loved ones, or maybe that’s all made up too.

If these figures are correct, there are 92 people that caught covid 19 not accounted for? Where are they? How many are still in hospital? How many are isolating at home?

All this is plandemic scamdemic
Look what is going on behind the scenes. All our rights are being taken away.
WHOs directive to put covid 19 on all death certificates – scam of the century.
This is a false flag , just like 9/11 but global – wakey wakey

I FULLY agree that this will be ‘USED’ to take our rights away.
But this is a handy ‘additional’ outcome for HMG and world leaders NOT the other way around.

Whether it is you or I, and it is me, who is right, the we can always protest afterwards with a strong letter, or a fruitless march to London, if we can still afford a stamp or the ferry fare to end our enslaved lives

IMO Governments have been taking our rights away for years and most are too dim to see that, this is just a handy accident, which will then be ‘used’ to the max by countries leaders.

Do you really think the world would blow their economies for decades on heresay? Read about the Spanish flu. The second spike was monumental. My daughter in law works on the Covid wards she’s seeing it first hand and as for your rights, dont make me laugh. Your rights to go out and get infected are already being utilised. Enjoy…

I dont think anyone is in denialing that there is in fact a virus,of course there is. But the way its portrayed is nothing but criminal, and yes they will blow the economy of the world,because this is about power and control . As I’ve said many times please research agenda 21/ 2030,the government even have it on their website, this is the end goal. Not a conspiracy, fact.

I fully agree that only island residents should be here and NO ONE other than essential people be allowed on ferries and if they do slip through, this side of the Solent should be manned and they should be made to return to the mainland with no refund. One point though, I reside on a holiday park and my car, bought on the island, doesn’t have an island registration plate so I hope I’m not looked on as a tourist as I really am not one.
