I would tell everyone not to worry or to even panic over this passenger Corona virus testing news at this time.

Danilo Medina, the OUTGOING Dominican President, is still President for now, until the new President takes over in August.

Medina is an overreactive moron that kept DR locked down for an extensive period of time over Corona, and still continues to do so, even on his way out, further hurting DR’s economy (power is a hell of a drug, SMH). This new passenger testing protocol implemented on Medina’s watch may not even stick, once new President, Luis Abinader, takes over.

Abinader has the power to reverse orders of the previous Medina administration come August. With Abinader’s focus on economic recovery, I find it unlikely that he will support protocols like invasive passenger testing for ALL arrivals, that will only further deter travel and tourism.

I’m not against testing, but I am absolutely against the testing of people who are not arriving with a fever or any other obvious symptoms of illness. Even medical professionals (the smart ones without an agenda) say that it doesn’t make sense to test unless you’re exhibiting symptoms.

The other issue I have with these so called tests, is the rampant reporting of false positives based on markers in your system from the common fucking cold. False positives based on bullshit like this have happened, and continue to happen, and if DR is getting their test kits from China, there’s no telling what kinda bullshit ass result you might get.

Ain’t nobody trying to have their trip fucked up over a bogus test result when you KNOW you’re not even sick.

I was wondering if the anxiety in Puerto Rico would spill over to the DR.   The socialists there are calling for a moratorium on all tourists.

I don’t know man. Most of these smaller countries are just mimicking what the usa is doing even when it’s not warranted. Most of Africa is another example of this outside of SA. I also believe our country will also start demanding this for citizens arriving back into the country. They are probably just waiting for this next stimulus package to drop to fund for it. All of this is not looking good at all.

There are murmurings now that if we lock down again we will close our borders completely for the duration of the lock down and prohibit interstate travel. The powers that be are on the verge of panic.

This does not make a lot of sense.

Firstly, government does not change until August 16th. You can’t tell the folks traveling before then not to worry.

Secondly, you feeling sick has absolutely nothing to do with you being asymptomatic and carrying the virus and infecting others.

And if we all take a step back... if we were there we would be indulging in extremely high risk behavior with people who are indulging in extremely high risk behavior.

I do think this is reactive, and doubtful it’s a traveller friendly way to limit infected people arriving, but I can’t really suggest a better way.

Get that test before you go.

Viva,

I’m aware that the new government doesn’t transition in until Aug. 16th. Just to clarify, those with travel plans after that date may or may not have to worry. It’s a wait and see kinda thing. As for those traveling before that, they’re gonna have to figure out what they’re willing to endure.

I disagree with you about testing for people who are not obviously ill. Unless you work in a field where you are a first responder of any kind, there’s no good urgent reason for a person who looks and feels well to get tested for Corona. Now before you dive into a whole diatribe about asymptomatic people passing on the virus, the existing scientific literature indicates that the likelihood is very low, because if someone is asymptomatic, there isn’t enough virus present to appropriately and successfully infect others.

If push comes to shove and someone wants to travel, of course it’s probably better to do it before they travel. The test kits they’re using in DR are probably even less reliable than the ones they’re using here.

My biggest concern about this from the beginning was getting caught in some bullshit somewhere. I cut my last trip short and skipped a stop in NY when this was starting.

News today, a surprise 14 day mandatory quarantine for brits returning from Spain.

From what I understand they put that policy out earlier today and by tonight it has already been walked back. They have suspended testing requirements for incoming tourist

I bet the govt will have a change of heart on this.

There is almost no way possible that they will have the ability or expertise to conduct that quantity of tests in a rapid manner at the airport.

They can't even make that happen with their own people that quickly in controlled labs

The results are going to be garbage.

Hell they would not be able to accomplish that much testing at USA airports.
