North Islands: Already 3 infected

Three cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed in Saint-Martin and Saint-Barthélemy.

After a Saint-Barth resident contacted the Samu for worrying symptoms, his parents leaving for Paris from Saint-Martin international airport were intercepted by health authorities before their departure on Friday. All three have tested positive.

Two other people are under surveillance in Saint-Martin.

The weekend was also marked by several demonstrations against the arrival of tourists, where riots erupted in different ports and airports of Martinique and La Reunion.

Martinique: Demonstration at the airport – tourist bus blocked

Several dozen people demonstrated Saturday afternoon at Aimé Césaire du Lamentin airport against the landing of a plane from Italy where the number of coronavirus infections is constantly increasing.

Althought the plane landed empty (the cruise company canceled the tickets) concerns loomed over the flight crew and also the professionals who work with them.

Several officials have asked for stricter controls on all travelers arriving on the island. But this was not enough to calm the anger of the demonstrators.

Clashes even broke out with the police as protesters stopped a bus full of 70 German and Belgian tourists who were to board a cruise ship on Saturday evening.

Reunion Island: Cruise ship passengers stranded at Port Est

Thirty Reunion residents tried to stop cruise-ship passengers from leaving the port on Sunday morning, leading to a confrontation with the police.

Out of the 2,000 ship passengers, more than 300 were able to sneak to various excursions before being blocked by the demonstrators.

The Sun Princess is the third ship of this type to anchor in La Réunion this week. But this Sunday, it was too much for the local population and officials who ask for better sanitary controls for those who debark to visit the island.

  1. So I’m thinking, with the media propaganda outlets whipping the population into a panicked frenzy, this scenario will continue to play out. What is clear is if this Wuhan Corona virus was as dangerous as “they“ imply, there would be no transnational travel whatsoever. It’s amazing how easy it is to manipulate the masses and incite chaos. People need to be thinking individuals.

  2. I told you all Global Riots and Global Civi War followed by Global Martial Law. I told you Iran has 2000 people died now new figure is 420 . Wait in more days their figures will be 2000 soon. Just city of Qoum 2000 mass graves is built? Now in USA thinking about vaccines , Viruses have no vaccines at all. Then why did not find for AIDS a vaccine yet ?lol When government tell you lies the truth becomes a treason Jesse Ventura
    US coronavirus cases will ‘surge into the thousands by NEXT WEEK’ and the CDC lost containment because their tests failed, claim experts as the nation braces for more deaths cdcc MASSIVE CHAOS ? Lie and deception continues accept S.Korea which has told truth 55 Millions under Martial Law ?

  3. good that they are turning away tourist. Russia and Israel and Turkey has closed their borders. Good for the islands. They do not have the capacity to care for sickened tourist.
