Volcano Covid

By Ceeking Ansirs

Recently, folks were messing about around Kick ’em Jenny. Correct if I’m wrong and there apparently was some volcanic action at the time at Kick ’em Jenny and people close to Grenada were put on the alert, etc.

Fast forward to a more recent time, the drilling with the aim of accessing geothermal energy in North Windward, St. Vincent.

Question: Could something have been disturbed causing a knock-on/chain reaction type effect from Kick ’em Jenny and La Soufriere, given their close proximity?

Is/are or could the drilling at Bamboo Range, on the slopes of La Soufriere have triggered a chain reaction? Did those who were drilling for geothermal energy, suddenly realize something and quickly pulled up stakes and blow town before anyone linked/suspected or asked questions?

It’s said this volcano started acting up around October time but an election was imminent.

I can recall more than a year ago there was talk about La Soufriere acting up.

Are the authorities aware of something they might be keeping secret?

Now, about COVID-19 in St. Vincent and the Grenadines…

When you see people with no travel history turning up positive and a 300% increase in cases over a seven-day period, some questions come to mind.

Question 1: Why wasn’t a curfew implemented immediately? Why was a complete ban on all gatherings not implemented?

Question 2: You have these new farcical regulations now on the mini-buses, etc. How vigilant are the authorities at enforcing whatever restrictions/regulations there are?

Question 3: Can proper contact tracing be at all possible with people still freely moving about?

If this COVID-19 situation were handled/managed properly in the first place, would we be where we are today? Would the situation be still escalating as it is now? For example, there has been approximately a 300+% increase in cases within a seven-day period. Does that make sense? Is SVG now considered a HIGH RISK Country?

Now, the people who should be frontline decision makers are, for all intent and purpose, somewhat out of commission.

Another question: Ah who JAH ah lick wid disease?

    1. Its amazing how you vincy see politics in everything. Take Q2 is that a political question? “an 18-seater van should only carry 12 passengers” thats laughable even if there was no covid.

  1. I asked the same question too in relation to the geothermal drilling and the volcanic activity, they not telling us the whole truth,how could you drill 3 wells and talk bout no permeability, and as soon as you leave the volcano having effusive Eruption, I dont trust you all,we have seen so many instances of the powers that be hiding truth from the masses only for them to find out years later,that they were lied to,I studied Geography and a bit of Geology,at UwI,and trust me interference in a volcano ,drilling into,and tampering with the make up,can lead to,activities in the volcano,I strongly believe,that the,geothermal, people found out something when they drilled those wells,and that’s why they hi tailed it out of here.Those are my beliefs,you are entitled to yours.
